Senneca Brands’ Chase Doors and Eliason Celebrate 2nd Annual National Traffic Door Day on September 28

CINCINNATI, Ohio -- Chase Industries, Inc., founded by Chase Blum in 1932, began its operation as an insulated walk-in cooler and specialty refrigeration equipment manufacturer. Ninety-one years later, Chase Doors is the world's oldest, largest, and most progressive manufacturer of double-acting impact traffic doors and specialty doors. Eliason Corporation is the number one leader for high-quality restaurant doors.

Eliason is recognized as the premier manufacturer of custom traffic door solutions, consisting of a wide variety of door types and custom options such as custom laminates, window shapes, sizes, etc.

September 28 has been designated by the National Archives as National Traffic Door Day. This day celebrates Chase and Eliason traffic doors and the businesses that use them to keep customers and employees safe.

Traffic doors create an efficient traffic flow in restaurants, retail and industrial spaces and help provide peace, tranquility, and a stylish separation solution where folks dine and shop so they can enjoy the environment and company around them. They add value and efficiency to applications with multi-directional openings where visual, sound, and environmental barriers are required. These doors are extremely durable and capable of withstanding the wear and tear associated with sales-to-back room and walk-in cooler openings in high volume establishments. Known for their long-term value, they are ideal for use in supermarkets, retail establishments, institutions, industries, restaurants, and food service operations.

On September 28, Senneca is proud to join in the celebration of National Traffic Door Day. This day honors the businesses that use traffic doors to ensure the safety of their customers and employees. We encourage everyone to show their support by taking a selfie in front of a traffic door at their favorite restaurant, retail store, or other business and posting it on social media with the hashtag #NationalTrafficDoorDay. We also ask that you take the time to thank the service industry individuals that use traffic doors in their daily work.

At Senneca, we are proud to provide high-quality traffic doors to businesses all over the country. We understand the importance of safety and security, and our doors are designed with these in mind. We invite everyone to join us in celebrating National Traffic Door Day and thank those who use our doors every day. Together, we can help keep customers and employees safe everywhere.

Foodiehall in Cherry Hill, NJ Adds a New Concept from Chef Sylva Senat and a Dining Room

CHERRY HILL, N.J. -- Since February of 2022, Foodiehall has operated exclusively as a pickup and delivery-only E-restaurant, serving cuisine from several different concepts out of its expansive space at 1931 Olney Avenue in Cherry Hill, New Jersey. Now, South Jersey's preeminent food hall has added an indoor dining room, while also bringing a new concept to life from a very notable chef.

Sylva Senat, a James Beard Foundation nominated chef who appeared on Season 14 of Top Chef, took over as Culinary Director of Foodiehall at the beginning of the year, bringing with him 25+ years of experience in the culinary world. Now, Senat has launched a new concept named S5 - featuring soups, salads and sandwiches - to Foodiehall, effective immediately. This is Foodiehall's 10th concept, with the others including Geno's Steaks, Canting Wok and Noodle Bar, Simply Fowl, DaNick's Craft Burgers, Criss Crust, Dando Tacos, Mac N Toastie, Fornire Italian Kitchen, and Junior's Doughnuts.

With the new concept comes Foodiehall's first ever dining area, changing the narrative that the brand operates as a pickup and delivery-only business. The new dining room features 20 seats, and guests can order from any of the 10 concepts and dine in-house.

"We are so excited to now be an actual destination for our guests to come and sit and enjoy a delicious meal," noted owner Dan Goldberg. "Operating as an E-restaurant brought with it some challenges, but we had a great first year-and-a-half in business, and our customers started to utilize the seats as soon as they were put in place. We're also very excited to have Chef Senat's new concept up and running. He's an extremely talented chef, and we're very lucky to have him and his cuisine here."

While the new concept features a large number of salads, soups, and sides, it's primarily a sandwich-focused brand. The menu includes a Chicken Parmesan Hoagie; a B.L.T.; Roasted Turkey Special; Reuben; Meatball Parmesan Hoagie; Italian Hoagie; Tindle Plant-Based Chicken Parm Hoagie; and a Tuna Sandwich. Senat is using 1/2 pound of meat on all of his deli sandwiches, and is using Orwasher's Bakery, a New York-based bakery, for rye bread.

In addition to the current menu, Senat will be adding a sandwich to the menu that connects his Haitian Creole lineage. The sandwich will feature braised oxtail, Haitian epis, and "pikliz" (pickle cabbage slaw) on an Atlantic City roll from Formica Bakery.

"In my kitchen, I welcome anyone and everyone who wants to learn. I love seeing people who want to be part of this industry, and I go into teacher mode," said Senat. "I always want to give back and be a role model to whomever I can. I hope to be able to do that with this new brand and a sandwich that gets back to my roots. Almost every person who comes into my kitchen has not only never tried Haitian food, but almost certainly has not cooked the cuisine before, so this is an opportunity for me to use my knowledge to help others."

Foodiehall opened during the final days of February of 2022 with six pickup and delivery-only restaurant concepts operating daily. Since then, the company has added several more, including Geno's Steaks' first and only South Jersey location.

Kona Village, A Rosewood Resort is First Hawaiian Hotel to Receive LEED v4 Gold Certification

KAILUA-KONA, Hawaii -- After a massive renovation of an iconic resort that prioritized resource conservation, sustainable operations, and care for local culture, Kona Village, A Rosewood Resort has received LEED Gold certification, sustainability consulting firm VCA Green announced today.

Global real estate investment company Kennedy Wilson (NYSE: KW) partnered with design firm Walker Warner Architects and Architect of Record Delawie following a devastating 2011 tsunami to transform the property's 81 acres into a premier Hawaiian resort.

The renovation was completed while staying true to original features, including a 150 guest hale spread across several village-like crescents, the Shipwreck Bar, and a petroglyph field, respecting archeologically significant sites or "kapu" while embracing an environmentally friendly design.

Sustainability consulting firm VCA Green is shepherding several of the resort's amenity spaces, including the Spa, Moana (the resort's main restaurant), and Employee Village, through the LEED v4 Building Design & Construction process and has secured Gold Certification for Moana. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is the most widely used green building rating system in the world that promotes healthy, highly efficient, and cost-saving green buildings.

"LEED continues to provide a meaningful, global framework for advancing sustainability within real estate and helped to guide our sustainability strategy throughout our innovative redevelopment project," said Alex Spilger, Head of Global ESG at Kennedy Wilson. "We are very proud to celebrate our LEED Gold accomplishment at Kona Village."

Kona Village is a water-neutral site that utilizes native plants, ponds that help the island's natural biodiversity thrive, and a reverse-osmosis non-potable water irrigation system. Solar panels and battery storage are designed to subsidize 100% of the site's energy use, while the all-LED lighting design reduces light pollution. Bike facilities and on-site amenities promote employee and guest wellness as well as reduce reliance on fossil-fuel-burning cars to move from place to place. The intense attention to each detail of the site's materials, layout, and operations awarded each section of the property full points in several LEED categories.

To commemorate Kona Village's outstanding dedication to sustainability, U.S. Green Building Council President and CEO Peter Templeton held a plaque dedication ceremony at the resort on July 25, 2023.

"Kona Village's LEED certification demonstrates tremendous green building leadership. All over the world, the hospitality industry is recognizing that green building works and enhances a company's triple bottom line-people, planet, and profit," Templeton said. "By incorporating green building practices, hotels are raising the bar for the global market, positively impacting the quality of our built space by providing everyone with access to healthy, green, and high performing buildings. Kona Village is a prime example of how the innovative work of project teams can create local solutions that contribute to making a global difference."

A huge portion of the Best of the Best contest, though, gets dedicated solely to food. With so many dining and delivery options throughout South Jersey, the competition is stiff.

Even so, Foodiehall was primed to win the Best Takeout award. Designed to serve patrons through takeout, delivery, and dine-in service, Foodiehall combines several different restaurants under one roof.

Specifically, people who order from Foodiehall have the option to choose from:

* Geno's Steaks, home of the best cheesesteaks in Philadelphia

* Simply Fowl, which specializes in chicken sandwiches

* Canting Wok and Noodle Bar, serving up high-quality Asian fusion cuisine and approachable street food

* DaNick's Craft Burgers, dishing up the classics alongside Beyond Burgers

* Criss Crust, blending Detroit-style pizza and artisanal pizza with gourmet toppings

* Dando Tacos, offering Mexican street food like birria and elotes

* Mac N Toastie, with plenty of grilled cheese and mac and cheese options

* Fornire Italian Kitchen, dishing up fine authentic Italian cuisine

* Junior's Doughnuts, with options like M&M and Bavarian Crème

Orderers can mix and match, too, choosing options from multiple restaurants in one single checkout without paying additional fees.

The Foodiehall team specifically designed the state-of-the-art Foodiehall kitchen to serve up high-quality dishes quickly. They serve the food in tamper-proof, ecologically friendly packaging that's safe to reheat.

Plus, with Foodiehall's Meal 4 Meal program, every meal ordered means a meal donated through Feeding America.
