Traulsen Blast Chillers Earn ‘Best in Class’ Award

FORT WORTH, Texas - October 24, 2013 – Traulsen recently received the top ranking in the blast chillers category of the 2013 Foodservice Equipment and Supplies survey of foodservice consultants, dealers and operators.

“We are honored that our blast chillers are ranked best in class for the second year in a row,” said Sharon Szafranski, vice president/general manager, Traulsen Refrigeration. “Traulsen blast chillers have been protecting food and customers for years by quickly and safely bringing food from serving temperature to storing temperature. Our model with the Epicon Visual Interface touch screen enhances accuracy and ease of use.”

In addition to recognizing Traulsen as “Best in Class” in the overall blast chiller category, the magazine reported results from the individual audience groups that contributed to the survey. All three groups—dealers, operators and consultants—each voted Traulsen blast chillers as “Best in Class” for their own categories.

Foodservice Equipment and Supplies partnered with an international research firm to survey its subscribing dealers, operators and consultants. The survey results determined the winners in various industry categories, based on seven key criteria:

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