US hospitality industry prepares for glassware revolution

US hospitality industry prepares for glassware revolutionGlass & Co, USA, one of Austria’s leading lead free crystal glassware producers, recently announced they are now able to service the North American market via their website and selected distributors, bringing some of the finest and most durable glassware to the continent.
Mr. Martin Richter, speaker for Glass & Co, USA, says the ground-breaking new glassware is set to revolutionize America’s hospitality industry in the same way that the top quality, scratch, shatter and chip resistant glassware has done in Europe.

“Our lead-free crystal glasses are designed with the newest technology and are made out of a single piece of high-density glass with no joints,” he says. The rims are diamond polished. “This means our glasses are super break resistant than those manufactured by conventional methods.”

Made in Austria, each beautifully crafted glass has a modern design and size while remaining strong enough to deal with constant use within the hospitality industry and is 100 per cent lead free, dishwasher safe and thermo shock proof.

“Our glassware has already seen incredible success in Europe,” Mr. Richter explains. “For example, Gordon Ramsey and Jamie Oliver using our stems in their Establishments.

Our chianti glass is one of the most used tasting glasses in central Europe and are used also by Wine Enthusiast and Food & Wine magazines for their tastings at the annual Cayman Islands Cookout that features famed New York chef Eric Ripert.”.

Mr. Richter says Glass & Co USA products are most definitely the new generation in glassware and he is excited that such innovative glassware is now available in the United States.
