NEW PORT RICHEY, Fla. — Manitowoc Foodservice has been named Vendor of the Year by the Subway restaurant chain during the brand’s 50th Anniversary Convention recently in Las Vegas.
“Manitowoc as a company comes to us with innovations on a regular basis to see if they fit our needs and if it is something that would really benefit the Subway brand,” said Frank Buffone, senior manager of Subway Operations. “It’s great having a supplier that really makes the Subway brand better. They bring innovation to the Subway brand that puts us in a better place than we were before they joined the team.”
“We ask questions like what is the total cost of ownership; how to make products more water conserving, energy efficient, easier to clean and easier to support? This philosophy leads Manitowoc Foodservice to regularly deliver innovation, like touchscreen technology and energy efficient equipment, which solve real operational problems while adding value that operators need,” said Glen Tellock, chairman and CEO of The Manitowoc Company.
