The Daily Meal: Gold Standard Cleaning System Debuts at Dickey’s Barbecue Pit Locations Nationwide

From The Daily Meal
In an effort to increase the quality and efficiency of operations, Dickey’s Barbecue Pit has adopted new cleaning products in all stores. The new products replace a system which has been a consistent source of Owner/Operator feedback.
Taking that feedback into consideration, Dickey’s has partnered with Ecolab to introduce a more effective and eco-friendly line of cleaning products system-wide. As this initiative is a complete overhaul of the existing cleaning system, the new products include dish detergent, sanitizer, floor cleaner, heavy-duty cleaner/degreaser, glass cleaner and hand soap. Ecolab will visit every Dickey’s location for installation.
“These new products are the gold standard in the industry,” says Tamala Fowler, Vice President of R&D and Purchasing. “The test phase was overwhelmingly positive, and we are glad to offer our Owner/Operators these high-performance, cost efficient cleaning products in their stores.”
The new products not only come with personalized installation, but training from an Ecolab technician which will then be supported by product ID/application posters in every store. Ecolab QSR specializes in helping customers deliver a cleaner, safer, more efficient and sustainable operation consistently across their chain to help improve revenue, lower operating costs, protect their brand and drive guest experience.
