Procter & Gamble Professional®, the away-from-home division of Procter & Gamble (NYSE: PG), received nearly a thousand comments from independent restaurant owners and foodservice managers who entered the Dawn 30th Anniversary Celebration Contest. The grand prize winners will receive a ‘back of house’ deep cleaning from the Dawn Clean Team, as well as a choice of $1,000 cash, 30,000 Foodservice Rewards® points or 30 cases of Dawn. P&G Professional sponsored the contest in March, during which Dawn users submitted thoughts about the product’s performance in their kitchens.

“It was tough choosing 10 winners from so many great entries,” says Maame Stephens, assistant brand manager for P&G Professional. “The winning entries came from loyal Dawn users with compelling stories about how Dawn has been a trusted ally, by helping take care of the greasy challenges they face.” Winners were chosen based on their preference for Dawn and how they use the product to make their jobs easier.

The 10 contest winners, located in nine states, are: Jerry Allen, Owner of Bama Belles Country Restaurant in Mobile, AL; Carolyn Crist, Partner/Manager of Griff’s Place in Aberdeen, SD; Karalisa Duncan, Food Service Director of Bethel Public Schools in Shawnee, OK; Keith Esbin, Corporate Executive Chef of Bar Harbor Seafood/Boston Lobster Feast in Orlando, FL;
Kevin Fox, Food Service Director of D-bar-A Scout Ranch in Metamora, MI; Michele Huisman, Owner of Lovey’s Snack Shack in Middleville, MI; Julie Kenney, General Manager of Sunset House Restaurant in Cody, WY; April Pasternak, Kitchen Manager of Ligonier Camp & Conference Center in Ligonier, PA; Ann Reichle, Owner of Angelina’s Pizza in Olmsted Falls, OH; Reid Sinderud, Executive Chef with Loma Linda University Medical Center in Loma Linda, CA.
