PHILADELPHIA, Feb. 25, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- SCA and Tork are pleased to announce that the Tork Xpressnap Image Napkin Dispensing System has been recognized with two prestigious honors for its premium design and innovation. The Xpressnap Image won a 2015 GOOD DESIGN Award from the Chicago Athenaeum Museum of Architecture and Design and was listed in FSR Magazine's 2016 FSR Buyer's Guide.
As the winner of a GOOD DESIGN Award, the upscale napkin dispensers were selected out of thousands of entries from more than 47 countries. Xpressnap Image design was hailed for being innovative and elevating an ordinary product to a premium, high-quality item.
Xpressnap Image was also hand-selected by FSR Magazine's editors and listed as one of the best new products in the restaurant industry in the last 18 months. Noted for its elegant design while still maintaining high functionality, FSR Buyer's Guide said, "The Xpressnap Image Napkin Dispensing System yields a more polished dining experience."
The Tork Xpressnap Image Napkin Dispensing System was created to provide a high-quality tabletop napkin dispensing solution that is both functional and aesthetically beautiful for upscale foodservice establishments. The new line is made of premium materials and available in two styles – sleek aluminum and genuine walnut – with traditional and café sizes available for both.
"We are thrilled that the Tork Xpressnap Image Napkin Dispenser was recognized by GOOD DESIGN and FSR Buyer's Guide," said Suzanne Cohen, Foodservice Marketing Director with SCA's North American Away From Home Professional Hygiene business. "We're seeing more and more demand for high-end napkin dispensers among design-conscious restaurants."
Made to seamlessly blend in with modern décor, the dispensers offer the well-known One Napkin, Every Time™ technology used throughout the Xpressnap dispenser family. By only allowing customers to touch and take one napkin at a time, the dispensers reduce napkin usage by up to 25 percent* when compared to traditional dispensers – saving restaurants time and money. The Xpressnap Image collection also features Tork Premium Extra Soft Xpressnap Dispenser Napkins that incorporate six elegant white print leaf designs.
Tork Xpressnap Image has won numerous awards since its launch, including the 2015 International Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) and IDEA People's Choice Award, Foodservice Equipment Reports 2015 Tabletop awards and 2014 Red Dot Design Awards.
*25% reduction in napkin use when compared to traditional napkin dispensers. Up to $250 money-back guarantee. Contact a SCA representative for full details.
