Cattlemen's Steakhouse Case Study
"At Cattlemen’s, our goal is to provide great food and distinctive ambiance. Installing Dyson Airblade™ hand dryers has offered a unique way to enhance our customers’ washroom experience."
Since opening its doors to hungry cowboys, ranchers and cattle haulers in the early 1900s, Cattlemen’s Steakhouse still operates as a family-owned establishment and has become one of the largest tourist destinations in Oklahoma.
Joe Garcia, Facilities Manager, noticed continuous problems in the washrooms, stemming from their existing hand drying solution – paper towels. Aesthetically, the towels were creating a mess on the floor, as well as plumbing issues when they were flushed down the toilets. Maintenance and operational costs also steadily increased year-on-year, so the decision was made to look at other solutions that wouldn’t detract from the guest experience and the Old West character.
As the only hand dryer with HACCP certification and NSF P335 certification, Dyson hand dryers promoted hygiene improvements and cost reduction. Cattlemen’s is now an avid Airblade™ technology advocate, and Garcia has partnered with Dyson to improve additional restrooms. Within the first full year, Cattlemen’s saved over $12,000 in operational costs and recuperated their investment. This was attainable because of the hand dryers' low operating costs and low energy consumption.
Faster dry times
Other hand dryers can take up to 43 seconds to dry hands. The Dyson Airblade Tap hand dryer uses two high-velocity sheets of air to scrape water from hands – drying hands in 14 seconds.⁺
Reduce water on the floor
With Airbladeᵀᴹ technology in a tap, users can wash and dry hands at the sink without moving to a separate area to dry hands. So no water is dripped on the floor.
Better for your environment
Up to 78% less expensive to run than other hand dryers. Up to 98% less than paper towels, with up to 80% less CO₂ and less mess.* Creates a better environment in your washrooms and in the world outside.
