Recognized with 2014 Industry Overall Best in Class Awards

New Port Richey, Fla. – October 2, 2014 – Foodservice Equipment & Supplies (FE&S) magazine just released the results of its annual Best in Class Survey and this year five Manitowoc Foodservice brands have won prestigious 2014 Overall Best in Class Awards in 7 categories.

The winning Manitowoc Foodservice brands are:

  • Cleveland in three categories – Braising Pans/Tilting Skillets, Steam Jacketed Kettles, and Steamers
  • Delfield® for Chef Counters – Prefabricated
  • Lincoln for Conveyor Ovens;
  • Frymaster® for Free Standing Floor Fryers
  • Manitowoc® Ice for Ice Makers.

As a group, Manitowoc Foodservice outpaced the competition by winning the most categories in Heavy Duty Equipment. Each of our deserving brands has done an exceptional job of demonstrating the reliability and adaptability of their products in the foodservice marketplace.

Throughout the fourteen (14) years that FE&S has championed the Best in Class Survey there have been two Manitowoc Foodservice brands that have never given up the top spot of Overall Best in Class in their category. Our 14-peat winners are Frymaster and Manitowoc Ice.

“We’re grateful to equipment owners everywhere and to our channel partners for their continued recognition of the performance and quality of our leading brands,” said Caitlin Rodgers, Vice President of Marketing, Manitowoc Foodservice.

How the survey was conducted?

During the past few months FE&S polled its subscribing foodservice operators, dealers and consultants, asking them to evaluate equipment and supplies manufacturers on seven critical characteristics that impact their purchasing decisions.

These seven performance factors are:

  • Product quality
  • Product value
  • Product design and aesthetics
  • Service and support
  • Sales representation
  • Product inventory and availability
  • Product information availability

Those participating in the survey prioritized these factors in order of importance and then rated the individual factories they work with in a given product category on these attributes. The individual results were combined with those from other participants from the category to create a composite score and identify those manufacturers that the readers of FE&S feel are the Best in Class for each of these product categories.

Manitowoc Foodservice brands have established the benchmark for understanding and meeting the needs of the entire distribution channel in their category.
