SCA, the maker of the Tork brand of away-from-home paper products, is celebrating the 10-year anniversary of the Xpressnap napkin dispenser system, the one-at-a-time dispenser that cuts paper waste.
One-at-a-time dispensing has stopped billions of napkins from entering the waste stream, as Xpressnap prevents patrons from grabbing fistfuls of unneeded napkins. This sustainability feature translates into savings for restaurant and foodservice operators.
Since 2003, Xpressnap’s 100 percent recycled and certified compostable napkins have diverted more than a half-billion pounds of recycled paper from landfills.
“No one wakes up in the morning thinking they need a better napkin dispenser,” says John Drengler, vice president, product and marketing for SCA AfH Professional Hygiene North America. “But over the course of a decade, Xpressnap has come to represent Tork’s commitment to customer-driven innovation, a showcase for creating products that help our customers reduce costs, drive down labor expenses, and create a better work environment.
“In a restaurant, products like napkin dispensers are conspicuous if they don’t perform,” Drengler adds. “Xpressnap is a product that helps restaurants improve their image while enhancing the dining experience.”
SCA will kick off its 10-year anniversary celebration of Tork Xpressnap during the NRA show at booth No. 1254, where the company will announce the winner of a $25,000 media package designed to enhance the winning company’s business and marketing needs.
Throughout the year, Xpressnap’s achievements will be celebrated through social media, parties, events, and contests across North America.
