'Bring the Heat' Award

For more than 100 years, Sterno has been depended on to bring the heat for the hospitality and foodservice industries as well as at-home entertaining needs. Today, Sterno announces their Bring the Heat campaign honoring the resiliency of foodservice employees rising to the challenge of the industry's new normal. From chef to line cooks, servers to dishwashers, Sterno recognizes all positions deserve distinction and nominations are now being collected at sterno.com/bring-the-heat-award until October 28, 2022. The winner will be selected by the end of this year and awarded a commemorative plaque and a $5,000 honorarium. 

Forecasted to reach $898 billion in sales and grow by 400,000 jobs in 2023, the foodservice industry continues to recover following several years of uncertainty and struggling performance. "The industry's outlook is positive, and we want to take a moment to spotlight the workers who continue to show up and 'bring the heat' with positive attitudes and strong work ethics, whether their front-of-the-house or back-of the house. They are the unsung heroes keeping the industry moving forward," explains Craig Carnes, President and CEO of Sterno.

Sterno is seeking nominees in the foodservice industry who capture the spirit of doing their best and exceeding expectations. For example, being a mentor and leader to younger staff, dedication, and commitment to customer service, perhaps developing a zero-waste kitchen or even volunteering for a food pantry.
