Inventory has come and gone.  2015 inventory was by the smoothest inventory to date.  Much of this was due to the huge effort put in by Chris Malo and his inventory team to have things ready to go.

From the time Chris comes in our door every morning until he leaves each evening, he never stops working.  It is his daily responsibilities to make sure materials are stored, counted and distributed accurately so that the production process  can begin and move along as smooth as possible.

Please join us in thanking Chris – you make a positive difference for FWE every day of the week.

CELEBRATING TEN YEARS WITH ALL OCCASIONS PARTY RENTALS

CELEBRATING TEN YEARS WITH ALL OCCASIONS PARTY RENTALS
FWE Caters Top Notch Service to Knoxville’s Event Planning Business

PORTLAND, TENN. (April 15, 2015) – When you think of event planning, what’s the first word that comes to mind? Weddings? FWE thought so too. However, All Occasions Party Rentals capitalizes on too many market segments to even list.

With over seven acres of land housing anything from decor to games and inflatables, this place has everything. Their inventory isn’t the only thing that is impressive. All Occasions Party Rentals works with the area’s most prestigious caterers and event facilities Knoxville has to offer. Director of Operations, James Aiken, said “we have contracts with a lot of local clients, like the University of Tennessee Knoxville, Bonnaroo, [and] the City of Knoxville” to name a few.

FWE / Food Warming Equipment Company , Inc. P-120 Humi-Temp Banquet Cabinet at Knoxville’s All Occasions Party Rentals

Because of their loyalty and support of local businesses, All Occasions Party Rentals was awarded the Knoxville Chamber’s Pinnacle Business Award in 2012 and the Dream Big Small Business of the Year in 2013.

FWE is proud to be apart of its success and provide solutions to All Occasions Party Rentals since 2005. 10 years ago, this event planning venture was in need of mobile banquet cabinets and chose FWE’s P-120 cabinets to rent out to its catering clientele.

The P-120 model feature’s FWE’s “Humi-Temp” humidified heat system, in which humidity can be added to condition circulated heat, eliminating hot and cold spots by gently circulating air throughout the banquet cabinet. All Occasions Party Rentals’ clients do not have to worry about serving delays and last minute arrivals.

Even a decade later, these same cabinets are still in use today. Aiken says “ The P-120s are loaded onto trucks and being used at catering events every single weekend.” The welded construction and tubular stainless steel base frame have sure taken a beating, but have proven that FWE’s equipment can withstand even the most demanding use.

There is no doubt that All Occasions Party Rentals made a strategic investment with choosing FWE as a capital equipment purchase. With a positive return on investment and an innovative business model under their belt, FWE hopes to provide solutions for All Occasions Party Rentals for decades to come.

Keeping Food Hot While Maintaining Flavor at Knoxville’s Carter Elementary School

HOT MEALS PROVIDE A BETTER EDUCATION
Keeping food hot while maintaining flavor at Knoxville’s Carter Elementary

PORTLAND, TENN. (April 1, 2015) – When most people think of an elementary school they think of reading, writing and arithmetic. At Food Warming Equipment, though, we think about how our equipment is hard at work fueling better educations. Children need quality, nutritious food to be fueled for a full day of learning.

Carter Elementary School, located in Knoxville Tennessee, is a new school built in 2013. The school trusts FWE equipment to keep food at the perfect temperature while feeding over 600 people at annual holiday lunches.

Sue Ville, Food Service Manager at Carter Elementary School

“Carter Elementary School takes its food very seriously,” said Sue Ville, Food Service Manager for the school. “We daily make all meals from scratch and provide hot lunches for children who may not get them at home”. You can’t learn on an empty stomach It’s not just about “Hot Food”. . .it’s about hot food that holds its taste! Our heated holding cabinets are designed to help your food not only stay hot, but fresh and flavorful for hours!

Food is prepared and then put in FWE’s PHU-12 holding cabinet. Once in the PHU-12, the food is kept at the optimal temperature until it is served. Our moisture cabinets are designed to preserve food quality while staying hot and ready to serve. An accurate balance of heat and humidity levels creates an environment ideal for holding product for short-term and extended periods. When you are feeding hundreds this is of the utmost importance. Nobody wants a cold lunch, or a hot flavorless lunch. FWE provides the perfect balance to keep tummies full and learning fueled.
