Current Projects
  • Overseeing the Annual F&B Conference, which helps operators develop strategies for increasing revenues from restaurants and other foodservice establishments, as well as improve production techniques for serving these markets.
  • Creating a better public image for F&B linen rental service through trade exhibitions and business and consumer media.
  • Contacting Culinary Schools to facilitate presentation of information regarding the value of using a linen service. This will be instrumental in teaching new professionals in F&B the value of using linen as opposed to disposable.
  • Compiling data to create an interest in reusable textiles for linen and uniform service versus disposables products, highlighting cost and sustainability advantages.
  • Building templates to make it easier for members to pull together data and images for digital and print materials they can use to promote their services.
  • Reviewing ways that the Hygienically Clean Food Service certification can be marketed to show the benefits of using a linen service for food safety.
