About the Idaho Potato Commission Established in 1937, the Idaho Potato Commission (IPC) is a state agency that is responsible for promoting and protect- ing the famous "Grown in Idaho" seal, a federally registered trademark that assures consumers they are purchasing genuine, top-quality Idaho potatoes. Idaho's growing season of warm days and cool nights, ample mountain–fed irri- gation and rich volcanic soil, give Idaho potatoes their unique texture, taste and dependable performance. These ideal growing conditions are what differentiate Idaho potatoes from potatoes grown in other states.

In-app messaging provides a way for merchants to share relevant information for their customers' benefit. More than a virtual wallet in con- cept, as Joey grows up, the interactivity between merchants and their customers will include take-out ordering, reloading of prepaid cards, gift card gifting and message sharing. Certainly there are a number of uni- versal loyalty program apps, gift card apps and virtual wallets out there. But Joey is different in some significant ways. Joey is designed to support the indi- vidual local merchant, not just all mer- chants as a group. Merchants may create their own time-based coupons, prepaid cards, gift cards and loyalty programs while continuing to use their existing POS systems. eC ard Systems (C o nt'd. fro m p. 1 ) Private, in-app messaging provides an ongoing communication channel directly from each merchant to only their customers. Merchant messages won't be lost in a sea of generic advertising from third parties. The Joey app was created and is sup- ported by eCard Systems, a 15-year, full- service gift card and loyalty program provider and processing platform, with in-house card production, design and an extensive lineup of gift card packaging products, both stock and custom. Most other apps are just apps, without the addi- tional ingredients and support that mer- chants need to succeed. A demo of Joey is being unveiled in the eCard Systems' booth #6267. Apple AppStore and GooglePlay release is tar- geted for mid-summer.

There are over 12,000 burns every year in the foodservice industry and over 60 percent of workers' compen- sation incidents in restaurants are related to cooking oil. That's where Restaurant Technologies' Total Oil Management solu- tion comes in. It handles the entire process – from ordering to receipt and storage to handling and recycling of used oil. It even automates the process so it is easy, intuitive and ready when you need it. There's no upfront capital cost, no expensive equipment to own and main- tain and no unexpected service charges – it stands behind its system and it includes everything. Stop by booth #9133 in the Lakeside Center across the bridge at McCormick place to see the system live in action with product experts on hand to answer your questions. It installs two tanks – a fresh oil and a waste oil tank. Its trucks deliver fresh oil when you need it and take away the waste oil at the same time. To add or dis- pose of oil, your employees no longer R estaurant Technologies (C ont'd. from p. 1 ) have to carry oil to the back dock or from the storeroom – they just flip a switch and the system does it automatically. This makes your kitchen safer and saves you labor. It has over 23,000 customers across the whole United States, including many of the largest names: Applebee's, Chili's, Marriott, Burger King, Hyatt, KFC and over 70 percent of all the McDonald's in the U.S. have chosen to put in its system for safety, food quality, sustainability and efficiency. Some of its customers who have installed the systems have run studies and proven out up to a 60 percent reduction in workers' compensation claims linked to oil – whether burns, slips and falls or back strains from carrying heavy jugs in boxes (JIBs). For an average sized restaurant, that could be up to $27,000 in reduced safety liabilities – which pays for the system many times over. Without having to worry about your fryer oil, you and your staff can get back to what matters: delivering the food and dining experience your customers crave.
