Learn about the Foodservice Industry with Vollrath University 0

Being fairly new to the restaurant and food service industry myself, I have quickly found that the best way to learn is to self-educate.  There are not very many resources out there aside of good old fashioned catalog reading and product self-educating.  Where does one start on their food service education journey?  catalogsvollrath catalogWhile browsing through my wall of catalogs, I stumbled upon the Vollrath catalog.  Vollrath has built a brand reputable for having the highest quality goods and equipment in the industry.  But they don't just offer great products, they have shown they care about the knowledge level of industry professionals by creating VollrathUniversity, a online educational website geared to teach both professionals and newbies like myself the ways of the industry.  Do they get to plug their equipment?  Of course.  But is that such a bad thing when their products are widely used across the world in commercial kitchens? [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W4FUNpouZHA?feature=player_embedded] Vollrath University What Vollrath has done is taken something like education and used it as a very effective marketing vessel.  I didn't major in marketing, but I'm sure there is a term for this type of marketing, and it definitely is effective.  So effective that I'm writing about it to share with you all. We have decided to unofficially endorse this education method for those who are curious about the food service industry and would like to learn more about it.  We will be posting their educational content periodically on our site (Citing our sources of course) to help you find the content.  Like what you found there?  Let us know if this blog was helpful for your search in restaurant industry education. In the huge sea of restaurant equipment, parts, and small wares, you can learn and educate yourself into a competent member of the food service industry.
