, /PRNewswire/ – For over 100 years, the iconic food brand Sterno has been relied upon to bring warmth to the hospitality and foodservice industries as well as home entertaining needs. Today, Sterno is announcing their Bring the Heat campaign, honoring the resilience of foodservice workers facing the challenge of the industry’s new normal. From chef to cooks, servers to dishwashers, Sterno recognizes that all positions deserve recognition, and nominations are now being taken at sterno.com/bring-the-heat-award until October 28, 2022. The winner will be selected by the end of this year and awarded a plaque and an honorarium of $5,000.
Expected to reach $898 billion in sales and grow by 400,000 jobs by 2023, the foodservice industry continues to recover from years of uncertainty and struggling performance1. “The outlook for the industry is positive, and we’d like to take a moment to spotlight the workers who continue to show up and ‘bring the heat’ with positive attitudes and strong work ethic, whether they’re front of house or back of house.” They are the unsung heroes that keep the industry moving forward,” explains Craig Carnes, President and CEO of Sterno.
Sterno seeks nominees in the foodservice industry who capture the spirit of doing their best and exceeding expectations. For example, mentoring and leading younger employees, dedication and commitment to customer service, perhaps developing a zero-waste kitchen or even volunteering for a food pantry.
