Commercial Kitchen Storage Makeover

Congratulations to the 2019 Winner!

The Jewish Community Center of Greater Columbus

Judges poured over many great entries in the 2019 installment of FE&S' Kitchen Storage Makeover Contest. They were asked to analyze photos, videos and the descriptions of operators' storage and efficiency needs and award one winner to receive up to $50,000 worth of Metro product. That winner is the Jewish Community Center (JCC) of Greater Columbus in Ohio.

A community partner, the JCC is the #1 resource for Columbus' kosher meals. They supply full catering service for up to 1,200 guests and more than 600 kosher meals daily for pre-schoolers, seniors and home delivery. Check out the video transformation below and read the full article here
