When it comes to doing business, Henny Penny is all about building relationships. But that spirit of working together isn’t simply confined to our interactions with customers. We have a strong tradition of supporting our local community of Eaton, Ohio, as well as joining with peers worldwide to contribute to the success of our industry and environment at large. It’s all part of our commitment to doing the right thing — by our neighbors and by our planet.
Doing the right thing starts here at home. That’s why we’re proud to support the efforts of organizations like United Way in Preble County, Ohio — just one of the many local, regional and national groups we partner with throughout the year. Whether it’s donating resources to the YMCA and the American Red Cross or putting on our annual Community Cares Day, our employees go above and beyond to give of their time and talents to benefit others.
Taking the lead in our industry is something we all feel strongly about, and we believe in getting there responsibly. In 2013, Henny Penny Chairman and CEO Steven D. Cobb was presented with the William W. Carpenter Award —the highest honor within the North American Association of Food Equipment Manufacturers (NAFEM) — just the latest example of how Henny Penny’s products and people are continually being recognized throughout the industry. But as a leader, Henny Penny is also committed to giving back, both as a member of organizations like NAFEM and the National Restaurant Association as well as through the individual efforts of employees on behalf of Ronald McDonald House Foundation, Women’s Foodservice Forum and more.
We may not be able to save the world with a fryer, but we’re taking important steps to ensure our products reflect our commitment to environmental stewardship. In fact, 44 of our products have earned ENERGYSTAR® ratings for efficiency, which means measurable energy and cost savings realized by customers who switch to Henny Penny. But that’s not all. Whether through using sustainable manufacturing practices like building our products with recycled steel or focusing our engineering team on creating equipment that uses less resources — from oil to energy — we’re helping operators meet their sustainability goals and do business more responsibly than ever.
