More than a million buildings in North America contain some type of commercial or institutional foodservice including restaurants, bars, fast food chains, cafeterias, hotels, motels, long term care, institutional operations, etc. Clean-burning natural gas-fired products offer commercial foodservice customers comfort, ambiance, and convenience. A variety of natural gas-fired appliances are used in today’s commercial kitchens. Over 100 manufacturers are producing more than 600 models of gas-fired kitchen appliances alone. An additional 100+ manufacturers produce natural gas fired technologies that are used outside of the kitchen for things such as HVAC, humidity control, water heating, power generation, gas lights/torches, patio heaters, fireplaces/fire pits and booster water heaters.
