After reviewing information on the original Dyson Airblade™ hand dryer, Garcia knew he had found the right solution to the increasingly expensive paper towels already in his restrooms. As the only hand dryer with HACCP certification and NSF P335 certification, the original Dyson hand dryer would promote hygiene and cost reduction. Cattlemen’s is now an avid Airblade™ technology advocate, and Garcia has partnered with Dyson to improve additional restrooms. The updated Dyson Airblade dB dryer technology was incorporated as an easy retrofit to the original.
Garcia kept track of the savings Cattlemen’s experienced from removing paper from its restrooms, but his final calculations surprised him. Within the first full year, Cattlemen’s had saved over $12,000 in operational costs. “I couldn’t believe how quickly we saw the return. Within the first nine or ten months, we had already recuperated our investment.”This was attainable because of the Dyson hand dryer’s low operating costs and low energy consumption.From their first Dyson hand dryers to the mostrecent, Garcia has seen guests and employees alike be pleasantly surprised with Airblade™technology. “Now, instead of worrying about guests having a bad impression of the washrooms, they come back to the table saying ‘You need to go see the hand dryers,’ and that’s something we take great pride in.”
