FWE Inside the New JW Marriott Nashville!

The newest luxury hotel in Nashville!

Being able to help a customer realize their dream is what drives FWE to provide the best solutions in the business. That is why we are proud to be a part of the newest addition to the Nashville skyline, the JW Marriott. This all new construction stands 33 stories above the Nashville giving guests a view of Music City that is nothing short of breathtaking. The newest luxury hotel in the Marriott family has a total of 533 guest rooms, three restaurants, a spa, and a 50,000 square feet event space.

FWE is proud to have a place among its amazing and robust kitchen. With our heated plate transport and storage cabinets, JW Marriott can ensure that your food will serve timely. With an E-Z access rotating base, along with front door and flip-back top access, allows for easy loading and unloading of all dishes. We are excited to have shipped six of these storage cabinets to the JW Marriott.

Ideal for hotel/resorts, banquet operations, and restaurant establishments, the heated rotary dish cabinets are built stronger and perform better than any other on the market today – period!

Our unmatched design results in fast heat-up times and consistent plate temperature. Featuring a low profile design conserves valuable floor space by fitting under a 36″ counter; along with the high-quality stainless steel construction FWE is known for.

FWE has been delivering quality products since 1953 as part of our mission to provide our customers with the best products in the industry. Our ability to find solutions no one else can is what makes us essential for any kitchen.

We are looking forward to seeing the guaranteed success of the new JW Marriott in Nashville!

FWE Celebrates 65 Years!

Founder Oren E. Klemm

2018 marks 65 years since Food Warming Equipment Company was incorporated. In those years FWE has continued to stay on the forefront of the industry. An American business with international reach, FWE is always looking ahead.

But, that does not mean we cannot look back at our history.

Founded by Oren E. Klemm in the mid to late1940s and it was Klemm who was the pioneer behind the famous “HOT SERVE” line of cabinets. At the time, what would become FWE shared a home with Klemm’s main enterprise known as Peerless Water Filters, a water filtering equipment, and water tank manufacturer.

Former owner Richard Klemm, Oren Klemm’s son, recalls how his father altered the way we prepare food for the masses.

“Previously, when you attended a banquet or wedding the head table would be finished eating long before everyone else had even been served their food.”

But with FWE’s Heated Holding Cabinets and the like, chefs could keep mass amounts of food hot and ready to serve so that everyone got to eat at once. The original risks set the perfect stage for 65 years and allowed FWE to be unafraid to continue to take those risks. At FWE we cultivate the brightest, toughest, and the most committed people around. It has been a great 65 years. Here’s to another 65 better years!
