If you are already a Central Restaurant Products customer, then you’ve had the chance to interact with our team of knowledgeable product consultants.
You already know that many have been working in our industry most of their careers; others have experience working and managing restaurants before their Central careers. You know that you can trust their experience when seeking advice on the right equipment or supplies that fit both your application and budget. Whether you place your order via phone, fax or online – you know that they’ll have your back.
But, did you know that our consultants regularly attend vendor trainings held right here in our offices? Each week they learn about new products, industry trends and how to serve their customers better. In May alone, our product consultants met with Lakeside Manufacturing, Metro shelving and carts, Globe Food Equipment, Scotsman Ice, Moffat Commercial Ovens, Service Ideas and Manitowoc Ice Machines. Each brought in some of their products for hands-on learning.
It’s a quick half-hour session that allows vendor reps to teach directly to our consultants and answer their questions about ever-evolving product lines. When Service Ideas stopped by, our consultants were able to see hands-on the differences in their varied lines of beverage pitchers. They learned how each style was designed for specific applications – from self-service to elegant dining services.
When Manitowoc brought both local and company representatives to a recent training, they explained in depth how to determine the production capacities needed for a wide variety of food service customer types. Did you know that a full service restaurant should plan to use 1-1/2 lbs. of ice per person, while a hotel should budget 5 lbs. of ice per room? How about which food service segments should consider nugget and flake ice? Our product consultants have the tools to answer these questions for our customers.
