LISLE, Ill. -- Unilever Food Solutions is offering foodservice operators a chance to win $1,000. Now through Dec. 31, 2012, every operator who completes a purchase order of free branded merchandise at www.fohmerch.com will be entered into the contest.
The Lisle, Ill.-based company has created the sweepstakes to thank operators for promoting its brands, which include Lipton, Hellmann's, Best Foods and Country Crock.
Research shows that front-of-house branding can have a strong influence on the purchase decision of both loyal and new customers, the company said. By promoting top brands, operators show they care about quality, resulting in increased traffic, guest satisfaction and profits.
Unilever Food Solutions offers a variety of branding tools to help operators in a way that best fits the needs of their operations, it said. At www.fohmerch.com, operators can choose from free branded merchandise such as iced tea urn wraps, window decals, condiment caddies, sandwich paper and more.
