After extensive research into the restaurant distribution industry, Edward Don was the one company that we heard mentioned again and again. We feel very fortunate that they saw the same value and opportunity in SecureKlip® that we did.
Laguna Niguel, CA (PRWEB) September 6, 2008
Edward Don & Company, the leading distributor of foodservice equipment and supplies, has added SecureKlip, Inc. as a new supplier to its already impressive lineup.
SecureKlip ® is the patented device that installs easily on any surface and holds women's' purses safely, securely and conveniently underneath bars, restaurant tables or countertops. SecureKlip® is fast-becoming the must-have customer-service amenity among restaurants, casinos, and hospitality venues the world over.
SecureKlip® sought out the relationship with Edward Don because of its longevity in the foodservice distribution marketplace and its proven track record of success. Edward Don & Company has been owned and operated by the Don family since 1921. Edward Don & Company has six full-service, state-of-the-art distribution centers located throughout the United States.
Cathy Wood, President of SecureKlip®, Inc., said, "After extensive research into the restaurant distribution industry, Edward Don was the one company that we heard mentioned again and again. We feel very fortunate that they saw the same value and opportunity in SecureKlip® that we did."
Mark Steinberg, Vice President of Marketing and Merchandising with Edward Don & Company in Chicago said, "We introduced SecureKlip® to our sales managers in all of our regions earlier this year. The selection process included a request for feedback on many possible new items to include in the upcoming Hot! New! Now! Campaign and SecureKlip was one product that our managers unanimously agreed was one we wanted to include."
"The relationship is a good fit for SecureKlip®," says Bob DePew, Vice-President of Operations with SecureKlip®, Inc. "We are a new company and making the right decision about selecting a U.S. distributor we knew could influence the ultimate success of our product. We're very excited at the prospect of having partnered with a company that is so universally well-respected in the foodservice industry."
Restaurant owners throughout the U.S., Canada and Europe have installed SecureKlips® to rave reviews from customers across the globe. It seems that making customers comfortable from the moment they sit down has a very real impact on their perceived enjoyment of their total restaurant experience. Research shows that providing customers with a pleasant aesthetic experience enhances their overall enjoyment of their dining experience. The same research points out that happy customers are repeat customers.
In addition to strictly customer-service concerns, restaurants are increasingly becoming more aware of the hazards of not providing a convenient place for purses off of tables and countertops, which was previously the only option for women. "SecureKlip® will set a new standard in food safety as the 'final mile" for the foodservice industry that continues to be singularly focused on food chain supply and on-site sources of potential contamination, but have not yet considered the hazards walking through the front door carried on the bottoms of women's purses," continued DePew.
With half the population carrying purses and other belongings into restaurants, bars and foodservice establishments every day, SecureKlip® presents an opportunity for restaurant owners to add an additional layer of safety beyond those already mandated by law. Installing SecureKlips® also demonstrates an extraordinary level of awareness and attention to customer-service concerns previously overlooked by most restaurants.
SecureKlip will be featured at the upcoming Global Gaming Expo (G2E) at the Las Vegas Convention Center, November 18th - 20th, 2008. You may visit them at Booth #N611 or at their website http://www.secureklip.com. SecureKlips ® can be purchased by contacting your Edward Don sales representative.
