A leading foodservice equipment designer and manufacturer Henny Penny Corporation has received a 2014 Kitchen Innovations Award for the Velocity Series Pressure Fryer. The Kitchen Innovations Awards are produced by the National Restaurant Association Show to recognize and celebrate products and services that specifically improve the back of the house and benefit operators.


The Velocity Series Pressure Fryer is the company’s newest product and will be introduced to the general market in May of this year at the National Restaurant Association’s annual trade show. Developed in close partnership with leading restaurants, the fryer offers new features and advantages including automatic filtration – allowing you to receive 4X longer oil life.


This award marks the fifth time a Henny Penny product has received this prestigious award. In 2009, 2010, and 2011, Henny Penny received the award for the Evolution Elite open fryer and in 2008 for the SmartCombi oven.


“Velocity Series Pressure Fryer is a result of Henny Penny’s focus on the customer, their challenges, and using innovation to solve their issues,” says Rob Connelly, president of Henny Penny. “We are excited to receive the Kitchen Innovations Award. It is another positive acknowledgment of Henny Penny’s efforts to understand our customers, help them grow through new technology and support our vision for Velocity Series in their kitchens.”
