Less Than One Month Left To Enter 2016 Kitchen Innovations Awards

Innovative, cutting-edge equipment introduced to the marketplace in the past 24 months can garner more than customer raves and strong sales: It can get recognition from the National Restaurant Association’s 2016 Kitchen Innovations Awards program.

The 12th annual KI Awards, accepting applications through Dec. 4, recognize and celebrate meaningful advancements in foodservice equipment and technology. Award recipients will be featured in the Kitchen Innovations Pavilion at next year’s NRA Show, May 21-24, 2016, at Chicago’s McCormick Place.

Recent winners testify to the benefits of winning the honor. “The KI Award has helped IceZone to be the success that we knew it would become, and it has helped us reach that level much faster than we ever imagined,” said Adam Anthony, COO, BioZone Scientific Int’l., the manufacturer of IceZone, who asserted that sales have more than quadrupled since IceZone received the award.

Suppliers can learn more at restaurant.org/show/ki. To be considered, equipment and technology products must have been introduced or be introduced to the marketplace between May 2014 and May 2016.
