New Era Marketing Honored with Salute to Excellence Award

New Era Marketing based in Waukesha, Wisconsin, is honored as the supplier recipient of the 2013 Salute to Excellence Supplier Award, presented by the Wisconsin Restaurant Association (WRA) Education Foundation. The Foundation presents New Era Marketing with the award for their commitment to education, dedication to the industry and contributions to the future of foodservice.

“New Era Marketing is a dedicated partner that believes in the Foundation’s mission,” says Bryan Mowry, Managing Director of the WRA Education Foundation. “Their support and involvement in foodservice programs really makes a difference for the industry.”

New Era Marketing has proven their optimism for Wisconsin’s foodservice industry and foodservice education through long-time support of WRA, its Education Foundation and the Midwest Foodservice Expo. The company has been an involved industry participant and places strong value in grooming the next generation of foodservice professionals. For these reasons, the WRA Education Foundation proudly presents New Era Marketing with the 2013 Salute to Excellence Supplier Award.

Each year, the WRA EF recognizes five individuals and one company for dedication and commitment to education in the restaurant industry as Salute to Excellence honorees. Other 2013 Salute to Excellence honorees include: Richard Busalacchi (Milwaukee Area Technical College, Milwaukee); Marie Collins (Badger High School, Lake Geneva); Peter Gebauer, GMC (Potawatomi Bingo Casino, Milwaukee); Mark and Jean Landreman (Landreman’s Family Restaurant, Kaukauna); and Liz Moehr (Pulaski High School, Pulaski). Each honoree creates opportunities for people interested in foodservice industry careers. They have worked in a variety of roles, in different parts of the state, but they share an enthusiasm and optimism for the future of the restaurant industry.

The Salute to Excellence awards are presented at the 2013 Celebration of Excellence on Sunday, October 13 at Jefferson Street Inn in Wausau. More information on the event is available at www.wirestaurant.org.
