My passion for cooking actually came while I was in high school, when I was 13 years old. Had an executive chef who used to be a former Walt Disney World chef and he really got me into falling in love with ingredients and falling in love with the food. I love following recipes, I love creating things from recipes, but the real passion came when I was able to create whatever I wanted too. Efficiency and organization is the backbone of any successful operation. Without it, you aren’t going to succeed in what you do. The biggest challenge in running an operation of this size is really just creating efficiency and productivity. The impact of not having the right equipment is extremely visible. Having a dependable product that you rely on, that’s something we look deeply into to make sure we have the right solution to our business needs. This is the biggest hotel I’ve worked at in my career, ya know, and in terms of coverage, it’s really high. That’s where the organization is important. With this particular hotel, everything was sitting on a shelf at one point or another, and if we didn’t have that type of organization and that kind of space utilization with our shelving units, we wouldn’t be able to effectively service our guests. That’s where the Cambro shelving line really helped us in our operation become more efficient. Working with Cambro they actually came in, measured out the room, and made custom pieces to fit the entire room so that I could use the entire scope of the storage area. The problem with wire shelving is you know the rust is probably the biggest thing, you know, you get into operations where you are throwing away a ton of scrap metal and things like that into a trashcan. To have the Camshelving® itself, I’m not throwing anything away. Moving to the Cambro solution, we’ve been able to really maximize our team in getting a much more sterile environment, I would say that everything needs to have a place, and the Cambro shelving really helps provide that solution for us, which creates efficiency back-of-the-house which trickles down to impact our team that’s on the floor working face-to-face with the guests. The Cambro brand is important to me just because of the fact that it just really means quality, um, and durability, and, ya know, Cambro really stands behind their product. I take a lot of pride in what I do, and to see my kitchen running smoothly and efficiently is probably, you know, the one of the most important things for me.
Keeping an organized kitchen is one of the key things in maintaining efficiency and productivity - that’s why you need Cambro Camshelving®! Durable and rust-resistant, Camshelving® is the perfect solution for your busy kitchen.
