Gas Utility Industry Announces
Blue Flame Award Winner:
Garland High Performance XHP Broiler

(Washington, DC)  The Energy Solutions Center (ESC) is pleased to announce that its Blue Flame Alliance Consortium, dedicated to bringing new gas solutions to the commercial sector, including the foodservice industry, has selected Garland’s High Performance XHP Broiler to receive the 2021 Blue Flame Product of the Year Award. Garland will be presented with the award at a future date to be determined.

The Garland XHP – Extra High Performance broiler is revolutionizing the industry by using high power but low energy consumption. A chef is able to prepare food (meat, fish or vegetables) faster using as much as 50% less natural gas than a standard Charbroiler.

The XHP Broiler uses a patented gas burner system that mixes air with gas and delivers exceptionally high heat using a natural ceramic heat bed. This results in significant energy savings. Water vapor that is naturally released from fat and oils during cooking is absorbed back into the food. The burner system reduces the cross flavoring of food so your vegetables won’t taste like fish or meat. Cool air circulates around the grill to produce temperate surfaces protecting the operator from high temperatures.

BLUE FLAME ALLIANCE LAUNCHES NEW BRAND IDENTITY

Washington, DC (February 23, 2021) – Blue Flame Alliance, a non-profit, member-based organization of industry leaders in the natural gas community, announces a rebrand to include new colors, logo, typography, voice/tone and imagery. Established in 2020, Blue Flame Alliance started as the Gas Foodservice Equipment Network in 1999.

Blue Flame’s new identity was created to align with the organization’s business goals and growth strategy, appeal to a diverse audience, allow them to grow the brand and consortium now and in the future, and create a distinctive brand and name recognition in the marketplace.

“Our new brand reflects our knowledge when it comes to natural gas and why it’s the most effective and efficient energy solution,” said Barbara Stinson​, Director of Blue Flame Alliance. “Our mission will continue to be to focus on relationship building with key decision makers who oversee national accounts, including establishments in the foodservice industry. This will be accomplished by educating, informing, developing, and providing energy solutions where natural gas provides operational advantages to the customer.”

Blue Flame’s new logo is one of the most valuable elements of the brand. It captures the classic blue flame that is recognized as natural gas and incorporates a leaf that symbolizes the environmentally friendly element that makes natural gas the superior choice.

The alliance’s new slogan captures the essence of the brand’s promise. ‘Solutions for Commercial Customers’ creates a sense of urgency, letting current and prospective members know that the alliance acts quickly to provide them with the guidance and answers they are looking for in all things natural gas.
