PHILADELPHIA, March 3, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SCA and Tork announced that the Tork Xpressnap Drive Thru Napkin Dispenser was honored with a 2016 Applied Technology Award from QSR Magazine. The awards recognize new technologies that are transforming the limited service restaurant experience both for customers and back-of-house crews.
One of eight winning entries, Xpressnap Drive Thru was recognized for its innovative and effective way of decreasing costs by reducing waste while still promoting speed and accuracy in drive thrus. QSR Magazine said: "This dispenser helps brands reduce waste and save on back-of-house costs by not sending an inordinate amount of napkins out the window."
One of many innovative products in the market-leading Xpressnap family, the Tork Xpressnap Drive Thru Dispenser brings the same consistent hygienic and sustainable benefits of the Xpressnap line to back-of-house-operations. In addition, the dispenser streamlines inventory by using the same Xpressnap napkins as dispensers use in the front of the house.
"It is an honor for the Tork Xpressnap Drive Thru Dispenser to receive a QSR Applied Tech Award," said Suzanne Cohen, Foodservice Marketing Director with SCA's North American Away From Home Professional Hygiene business. "The Drive Thru Dispenser was created to solve back-of-house problems, and we're excited that it's being recognized for its ingenuity in cutting costs and improving sustainability."
Since its launch in 2015, the Xpressnap Drive Thru Napkin Dispenser has been proven to cut overall costs and napkin waste by distributing a set number of napkins with the push of a button. The high-capacity design also ensures that drive thru employees save time by requiring fewer refills than standard napkin dispensers.
