Grainger Food Safety Products [cached]
"Food safety is often a hot and challenging topic among our customers within the lodging industry," says Rick Betz, VP of brand segments for Grainger and former VP of strategic sourcing for Starwood Hotels. "As a result, the food safety product category within Grainger's newly launched Hospitality Catalog is resonating very well with our hotel customers."
Ice handling equipment is among the F&B products available from Grainger to address safety issues. "While ice handling may seem relatively simple, it can present a very high risk for food contamination, and customers are turning to products such as specialized ice totes and ice scoops with hand guard features," Betz says.

"People are using mobile technology for a variety of things," says Rick Betz, brand vice president at Grainger. "One thing is to just source product-take a look at it or do research-but they are also using it to place orders and confirm orders."
Recognizing the shift in the way businesses buy maintenance, repair, and operating (MRO) supplies, Grainger developed its new mobile website to give people more streamlined access to no matter the location-job site, truck, plant floor, garage, or maintenance shop.
"We have just about everything-as you may have seen on our commercial that includes the kitchen sink-so we wanted to be able to provide information to our customers in real-time," Betz says. "If you have an engineer working in a guestroom and he or she is looking for information on a particular product, they don't necessarily want to go all the way back down to an office to look it up. Many times they'll want to be right where the work is and look it up. It saves a lot of time."
Betz says facility maintenance in hotels is often time sensitive, particularly when guests are present in a room. "They want that fixed so it's important you give the engineers information as quickly and completely as possible," he says.
