What's the best way to ensure you can cook up to 100 Turkeys for Thanksgiving? Get a new oven. And that's exactly what RFMA helped do for the folks at ECTLC. Thanks to the efforts of Danny Koontz with Mobile Fixtures, we were able to get a brand new, double-stacked blodgett oven for the folks at ECTLC. For those of you who have been following this closely, this piece of equipment has been very high on our wish list as it is where 80% of all their cooking occurs. Their previous oven was on its last legs so this gift came at the perfect time. As of today, they have already cooked over 50 turkeys in these new units.
In addition to Mobile Fixtures and Blodgett, we also need to thank Charles Rex at Ecolab for their team's support in installing this oven for us.
What else is going?
* The Walkin freezer box donated by the folks at Facility Solutions, Inc out of Michigan was delivered. Many thanks go to Tom Cullen and Chuck Skruba for making this happen. The box and refrigerations system will be installed and connected soon. We will share more details on this in the next week or so once it is completed.
* Electrical work - thanks goes out to Spencer at Reliant Electric for his team's recent help. They were able to modify the hood controls for the hood systems so that all hoods could be controlled separately. This was a huge issue for the folks in the kitchen and modifying this is a huge help for them. They also installed a service switch on the new ice machine to allow the team to more easily control when the unit runs.
* The playground is in full use (see attached photos)
More to come. Stay tuned as we keep you up-to-date on all the great things happening with RFMA gives 2015.
