School Fruit Seminar Success!

Wednesday April 25th, KaTom came together with PMR, RepsSouth, Hobart, Mercer Cutlery, FSA, and Roy Siegel & Associates to throw the Fruit & Vegetable Seminar. 35 attendees met for the Fruit & Vegetable Seminar, held at the beautiful Gettysvue Country Club. There were many things to be learned as the attendees went booth to booth, viewing demonstrations.

KaTom’s very own Dawn, Mary-Lou, John, and Sean were in attendance as well and viewed the experience as being very helpful and educational. Our team members aren’t the only ones who have a great experience though! We’ve had a vast amount of feedback from this grand event praising both the demonstrations and KaTom’s Mary-Lou:

“Thanks so much for the great seminar yesterday! I loved the format - with the small groups it was easy to get an up close look at the equipment and ask questions. All the presenters did a great job and I learned a lot. Thanks again! - Lisa

“I wanted to say thank you for the seminar yesterday. We enjoyed it so much. - Melissa

“Thank you so much for letting some of the Managers from Cumberland Co attend. They really enjoyed it! - Kathy

“Thank you, Mary Lou, for putting on such a wonderful event and for including us. Job well done! - John

Each demonstration was very personal and lasted about 20 minutes. This made it possible for our attendees to ask questions and learn that much easier! It was also a perfect time to announce KaTom’s Mercer Knife Garnishing Set and Carving Set special for schools. We hope that by using fun fruit and vegetable garnishes students will be more inclined to choose healthier options during lunch time!
