When you’re in the hospitality business, providing your guests and clients with the best experience possible is essential. Training your team to offer great customer service from check-in to check-out is paramount, but behind the scenes, propane can help ensure you deliver a quality experience. Not just from the kitchen! Propane can help your resort, country club, hotel, and more earn great reviews and repeat business.
All that from propane gas? Yes. Here’s how:
Professional chefs prefer gas for cooking. Top chefs need the high heat and precision control they get from propane. It’s a key ingredient to turning out consistently great food. The temperature control makes it easy to time the finish multiple different dishes at once. The high heat lets them sear and cook quickly. It’s not just for fine dining—propane is also great for school and hospital cafeteria kitchens. Propane also provides great value: Propane costs on average 2.5 times less per Btu than heating with electricity, according to the U.S. Department of Energy. There’s a reason people say, “Now we’re cooking with gas!”
Propane is also ideal for powering mobile kitchens in food trucks, whether you’re serving up gourmet snacks or grilling up burgers.
Propane is excellent for heating water. Propane water heaters generate much more hot water at a cheaper cost per gallon. That makes them ideal for industrial laundry machines and commercial dishwashers, as well as for water heating for hotels and spas. Compact tankless propane water heaters can provide hot water to guest rooms on demand, rather than keeping huge tanks of water hot. Hospitals and nursing facilities have similar water-heating needs to hotels.
Propane enhances exterior spaces. Propane offers clean-burning, efficient and safe solutions for outdoor spaces. The same Btu-power that makes propane so good at heating water for bathing is ideal for heating pools and spas. Propane patio heaters keep outdoor dining areas comfortable, while propane firepits and fireplaces and even outdoor lighting, add ambiance to outdoor bars and lounge areas.
Propane for groundskeeping and back-of-house needs. Resorts and country clubs can make use of propane-powered groundskeeping equipment, from mowers and trimmers to maintenance vehicles and golf-carts, and even weed control. Propane can also help keep outdoor spaces mosquito free.
Most importantly, standby propane generators come on instantly to keep guests comfortable and safe, and keep essential systems operational in the event of a power outage.
Customers are paying attention to your carbon footprint—whether it’s paper straws instead of plastic, or an option to reuse towels, they want to know you care as much as they do.
When it comes to environmental impact, propane gas is a good choice. It burns cleanly, and produces minimal emissions. Propane also doesn’t harm soil or groundwater – an important factor when it comes to determining whether a fuel is “green.”
Propane is also made in the U.S.A. Propane is an American energy source. About 90% of the United States’ supply of propane is domestically generated. Most of it comes from the processing of natural gas.
