FWE has “Pole Position” at NAFEM – 2015


NASCAR and Formula 1 fans know the importance of achieving pole position in any race.  Along with that right, to be at the head of the pack, for all to see, and a leader that sets the pace for others to follow.

NAFEM 2015 Banner

FWE / Food Warming Equipment Co. (FWE) is excited about our new pole position, right at the entrance of the National Association of Foodservice Equipment Manufacturers (NAFEM) show, next February, at the Anaheim Convention Center in Anaheim, California.  Booth #4800, if that matters.

NAFEM is the leading trade association for the foodservice equipment and supply industry.  They are the industry leaders, trendsetters and professionals.  They are the creators of the Certified Foodservice Professional (CFSP) certification program and, of course, the NAFEM Show itself.  The NAFEM Show brings together the most influential and widest range of foodservice equipment and supply professionals on the planet where the latest in foodservice technology and solutions is featured for the ever-changing demands of the foodservice industry.

FWE has earned this premium position with over 60 years of experience in the industry, crafting solutions, successfully across a broad base of customers and markets.  FWE has established itself as a leader in Heated Mobile Banquet Carts and Cabinets and continues to innovate and branch out into related territories including mobile bars and beverage carts, air screen mobile refrigeration, retherm ovens, cook & hold ovens, and a whole host of specialty solutions that others won’t touch.  FWE recognizes the value of the special opportunities and custom requests which separates us from the rest.

Register today for the NAFEM Show and we’ll be right there when you walk in.

And don’t forget to stay an extra day and close off the event at the after-show party and dinner on February 21st .  A night with a live concert with the Zac Brown Band.

The Illinois BBQ Alliance is…
a community of barbecue friends, part of a much larger community. A community in which people occasionally need the kind of help that a group of BBQ cooks is uniquely equipped to provide.

Helping to feed people In need…
when natural disasters strike. Large groups of people are often without food, water, or shelter for extended periods while cities and towns rebuild their infrastructures and families rebuild their lives. And while aid organizations exist to try to bring essential supplies, none may be as well-equipped to feed masses of people as a group of BBQers. With their catering trucks, mobile rigs, and cooking expertise, a small team of well-coordinated BBQers can feed tens of thousands of people in need.

We want to be there…
for communities and individuals in need of some help. Whether that is a warm meal or a smiling face, we believe that we can provide a little relief, help meet basic needs, and offer moral support wherever it is needed most.

That’s the stuff that makes a community great. Please join us.

Somethin's Always Cookin' At FWE

Cook and Hold Smoker Oven
FWE - Cook & Hold Smoker Oven

Somethin’s always cookin’ at FWE and this time they’re literally smokin’ as they introduce a new line of cook and hold ovens with a brand new “smoker” feature.  The company has spent months developing and testing these ovens in R & D and recently announced a product launch date of January 1, 2012.

FWE’s CHSK Series is versatile enough to cook, hold, and smoke anything from pork to salmon to cheese, roasted potatoes or even ice.  The ovens feature a 2-stage smoker.  The “light” stage is a quick 15 minute smoke while the “standard” stage is a longer 1 to 2 hour smoke.  The units offer the longest burn time in the industry without wood chip refill.

FWE’s Airflow Performance allows for convection baking, roasting, braising, and holding with even airflow and without hotspots.  In addition, the CHSK Series ovens produce superb yields, great color, texture & feel for all types of products.  A menu lock-out is also available on the ovens, enabling supervisors or chefs to enter pre-sets into the unit and lock it, insisting operators cook only by using predetermined properties.
