- Researching the different Restaurant Associations that we could partner with to promote the use of rental textiles. We hope to have surveys and possible giveaways to create a better presence at restaurant association trade shows reinforcing the benefits of using a linen rental service. We plan to have representation at the National Restaurant Association’s show in Chicago in May.
- Contacting Culinary Schools to allow some of our committee members to present information regarding the value of using a linen rental service. This will be instrumental in teaching new professionals in the industry the value of using linen as opposed to disposable.
- Compiling marketing material to create an interest in rental linen and uniforms verses having on premises laundry or disposable products. We would like to conduct a cost analysis of using linen verses having an on-premise laundry or paper products. This will be used for sales programs and supporting the move to green.
- Putting together some marketing materials that can be used in sales for textile rental service. This would include using Hygienically Clean Food Service as a marketing tool to show the value of using rental linens for food safety.
- Reviewing ways that the Hygienically Clean Food Service certification can be marketed to show the benefits of using a linen service for food safety.
