Los Angeles, CA – June 13, 2017 — Worldwide Business with kathy ireland® is pleased to announce an exclusive interview with Alec Frisch, vice president and general manager of food service categories at GP PRO, a leading provider of hygienic dispensing systems and disposables for food service and restroom needs.

Frisch explained how GP PRO—and its Dixie® brand—is working alongside food service companies to increase their profits through many avenues, including cutting down on wastefulness. And with the recent relaunch of Dixie® to the food service industry, GP PRO has added a new Dixie Ultra® tier of premium innovations to the portfolio.

“We know that companies in the food service industry are faced with challenges around image, waste, hygiene and even sustainability,” said Frisch.  “Our goal is to provide cost-effective solutions to solve those problems.”

It’s estimated that the average fast food establishment uses 5,000 to 10,000 napkins daily. This stat alone shows how easily a company could save money if they simply addressed patron overconsumption occurring in their storefront. The Dixie Ultra® SmartStock™ Automated Napkin System is putting napkin waste on notice. The automated system manages portion control by dispensing an operator selected pre-set number of napkins per patron or order size, thus reducing the overall total napkin usage by up to 40 percent1 and helping food service establishments save on their total napkin investment.

White Castle, America’s first fast food hamburger chain based in Columbus, Ohio, put this product to the test. They realized they were buying vast quantities of napkins that were just getting thrown away, which is basically another way of throwing profits away. They replaced open-faced napkin dispensers with the new Dixie Ultra® SmartStock™ Automated Napkin System by GP PRO in ten stores. In just one month, they calculated 64 percent2 fewer overall napkins used. This successful test led White Castle to implement the automated napkin system in all its nearly 400 castles.
