Champion Industries, producer of warewashing (commercial dishwashing) systems, received the Americas Education Provider of the Year Award for 2009 from the Food Service Consultants Society (FCSI). The award was resented at the 2010 FCSI Conference in Minneapolis in March. Champion was one of 37 FCSI Education Providers considered for the award.
Each year, consultant members of FCSI attend educational sessions offered by Approved Education Providers and complete an evaluation of the program. The surveys results are used by FCSI's Council for Professional Standards to choose the Education Provider of the Year. Past recipients include Wood Stone Corp., Vulcan Hart, Halton, Enodis, Hatco Corp., and Alto-Shaam.
"Champion has epitomized the intent behind the FCSI Educational Provider Program, which is to offer our consultants helpful, accessible, educational content to foster excellence in their businesses,” said Karen Malody, MSW, FCSI Culinary Options. “They were always asking consultants what they needed. After listening, and with amazing turn-around time, quality programs were created to allow our members to receive desired information and tools to assist them with client work. The webinar/webcast approach was extremely helpful, to many of our consultants who cannot afford time away from their offices for days at a time. In addition, Champion traveled to various parts of the country to offer shorter seminars, literally meeting their audience half way."
“With well over 100 FCSI and non-FCSI consultants participating in webinars and factory, field or office-based webcasts, winning this award is an incredible honor,” said Suzanne Painter-Supplee, CFSP, MHS LEED AP Director Consultant Services, Champion Industries.
