Subway Honors Manitowoc Foodservice

Two awards presented to Manitowoc at the Subway chain’s annual convention.

At the Subway restaurant chain’s annual convention held in San Francisco in July, Manitowoc Foodservice was the recipient of two distinguished awards that recognized excellence in customer service and innovation.

John Klingenberger, vice president of global accounts for Manitowoc Foodservice, accepted the Subway chain Innovation award on behalf of Manitowoc Ice, manufacturer of ice machines and Merrychef, manufacturer of accelerated cooking ovens, for its innovative products over the last year.

According to the Subway sandwich chain, these two brands continuously look for new ways to improve their eikon e4 speed ovens and Indigo Ice Series ice machines in order to help the Subway chains improve efficiency and service.

Klingenberger received the Excellence in Customer Service award. This award was given in recognition of Klingenberger’s responsiveness and willingness to go above and beyond what other suppliers do to provide exceptional customer service to the Subway franchisees.

These awards were presented by Jan Risi, President of the Subway franchisee-run Independent Purchasing Cooperative (IPC).

“We are pleased and proud to continue providing innovation to the Subway chain for the future success of their franchisees and I was proud to have accepted and received the awards.  I know the Manitowoc Foodservice/Subway chain team has become stronger every year,” said Klingenberger.
