CFS Brands Innovates Upright Broom Design

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla., July 21, 2022 – CFS Brands – Sparta has added exclusive new ergonomic, functionality, and sustainability features to its already popular line of commercial-grade upright brooms. CFS Brands/Sparta is committed to helping keep facilities clean, organized, and compliant.

Purchasers will be swept away by the innovative improvements made to this line of floor-cleaning products. CFS Brands/Sparta relocated the threaded openings on its upright brooms to be more ergonomically correct. The new handle placement reduces wrist discomfort and sweeping fatigue. New angled heads and a variety of broom sizes allow for greater reach into corners and tight places.

Additional ACME compatible threads were added to the broom’s handle openings to ensure a tighter, more permanent fit. The bristle base/broom caps are now manufactured using recycled materials, and their new curved block design reduces waste during the production process.

“Continually improving the user experience is key to staying at the forefront of the commercial floorcleaning product market,” states Philip Zorn, Product Manager, Cleaning Tools at CFS Brands. “Our brooms already average five-star ratings, and we believe this new line of upright brooms may require that a sixth star be added to the rating system.”

CFS Brands Introduces New Efficient Air Curtain Refrigerator Doors and Eco-Friendly Refrigerant

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla., June 2, 2022 – CFS Brands – Dinex has added two operationally efficient door options to its air curtain refrigerators (ACR). The new tempered glass door increases labor and energy efficiency by eliminating the need to open the door when checking inventory. A new sliding stainless steel door makes the ACR accessible in facilities with space limitations. Both doors are available in left- and right- opening options.

Air curtain refrigerators use a horizontal and vertical air screen to keep food cold during extended operation, even when the door is open. They safely maintain food temperatures below 41 degrees Fahrenheit for up to two hours. ACRs are ideal for healthcare foodservice operations.

CFS Brands - Dinex is committed to protecting our environment by responsibly using clean technologies that replace harmful substances with more eco-friendly alternatives. CFS Brands has replaced refrigerant R404A with R452A in all of its air curtain units.

“CFS Brands - Dinex offers one of the only air curtain refrigerators that uses clean technology resulting in a global warming potential reduction of more than 45% compared to R404A refrigerant*,” says Herve Boeglin, Group Product Manager, Meal Delivery at CFS Brands. “These are already DEO 2017 compliant, meaning reduced energy consumption. Add to that our new clear glass and sliding doors, and it becomes apparent why our ACRs give our foodservice clientele a competitive advantage.”

CFS Brands Rolls Out Redesigned Commercial Grade Bronco Containers

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla., May 10, 2022 – CFS Brands - Sparta lifted the gates on its redesigned Bronco containers. As one of the cleanest containers on the market, Bronco is a superior solution for commercial establishments that use color-coded, lidded containers for food storage or sanitation.

Designed to outperform other storage and waste containers, these heavy-duty round cans are constructed of durable plastic with reinforced drag skids for maximum longevity. They are NSF Standard 2 and 21 certified, and available in 11 colors in sizes ranging from 10- to 55-gallons. Their smooth walls are ideal for food contact and cleanability.

From top to bottom, these containers have been redesigned for efficiency and ease of use. Innovative, comfortable handles prevent containers from vacuum sealing when stacked, molded-in notches securely attach the can to a wheeled dolly (20+ gallon cans), and ergonomic molded hand-holds on the base make lifting and disposing a breeze. Snap-on lids are also available in all colors and sizes.

"Like their namesake, Broncos are virtually unbreakable, and built to outlast the competition," states Philip Zorn, Product Manager, Cleaning Tools at CFS Brands. "They provide unrivaled performance and long-lasting reliability."

CFS Brands Expands Color-Coded Product Line

OKLAHOMA CITY, Okla., May 5, 2022 – Today CFS Brands – Sparta announced the expansion of its color-coded product line to include FDA-compliant shovels, handheld scrapers, and dustpans. This new line is available in up to 13 colors to enhance HACCP color-code systems and give operators even more options and flexibility.

Exceptional food safety starts with safe practices and guidelines in restaurants, food processing facilities, healthcare facilities, and other locations that serve or prepare food. Strictly enforced color-coded plans reduce the risk of cross-contamination by dedicating specific colors to specific food preparation areas.

The new products include shovels for handling large quantities of ice, food, and other ingredients; steel and plastic handheld scrapers that effectively remove materials from hard surfaces; and handheld dustpans that pick up fine and heavy debris on any surface. When used in conjunction with other CFS Brands – Sparta color-coded products, users will realize immediate organization and sanitation improvements, and operational savings.

"What makes this solution unique is that our color-coded offerings meet the demands of the market today. We have tagged this new line 'A Color for Every Zone' to indicate that it is less important which colors facilities use and more important that the same colors are consistently used in each zone," explains Kyle Crimmins, CFS Brands' Global Food Processing Project Manager.
