Three Years Straight, Cintas Named Best Uniform Supplier In The Industry By Food Processing Magazine
Recipe for Success: Mastery of Fundamentals Keeps Cintas Prime Cut Above
CINCINNATI, OH, February 14, 2005 – Food Processing Magazine's 2005 "Readers' Choice" results are in, naming Cintas Corporation (Nasdaq: CTAS) the best uniform supplier in the industry. The results mark the third consecutive year Cintas received “Golden Supplier” distinction from food industry professionals using the magazine’s unaided recall survey.
“Winning is sweet and notable,” said Dave Fusaro, Food Processing Magazine Editor in Chief. “Winning three times in a row merits special recognition.” Cintas was one of only six companies from 37 categories to receive the honor each year since the “Readers’ Choice Awards” began in 2002.
What is the recipe for success for food processing vendors? By taking a strategic, customer-centered approach to niche market penetration, Cintas has been able to lead the uniform industry through product innovation and needs-driven ancillary solutions. “Mastery of the fundamentals distinguishes who’s good, better or best in class," said Dan Ebel, Cintas National Marketing Manager. "Our food processing programs are driven by direct feedback from our customers, but our ability to execute, day in and day out, makes all the difference."
To create the “Readers’ Choice” list, Food Processing Magazine surveyed their subscribers from 37 categories across the food processing industry. The questionnaire was an "unaided recall survey," meaning participants were free to nominate any company they wished.
