How Do You Roll? Invests in Automatic Hand Washer
How Do You Roll? opened its first restaurant equipped with CleanTech ELF, an automatic hand washing unit by Meritech, in mid-March.
Joining only a couple hundred restaurants that utilize automatic handwashing equipment, How Do You Roll? is the first fast-casual in Jacksonville, Florida, to not only use CleanTech ELF, but also have the sink-alternative visible to the consumer.
“I felt this was a product that has the same core values as How Do You Roll? and falls in line with our mission to make the world better,” says David Tennyson, franchise owner. “It saves in water consumption and the waste of cleaning supplies. It also eliminates most bacteria, so I also felt there was need to have this product visible to the consumers.”
CleanTech’s touchless system performs a fast, fully-automated wash, using Meritech's proprietary Chlorhexidine Gluconate (CHG) solution, removing more than 99.98 percent of germs.
CleanTech encourages handwashing with pleasant, easy-to-use automation, delivering a consistent wash every time. How Do You Roll? employees are trained to use the CleanTechELF model before putting on their gloves each time to make a roll or touch any food.
“When dealing with raw foods and wanting to provide the highest quality products and experience, we emphasize a clean store and clean employees,” Tennyson says. “Our consumers are very pleased that we have invested in a technology to help protect them.”
