CLEVELAND-Vitamix announced that it has been supplying culinary schools across the United States with commercial small appliances through its Vitamix Culinary School Program.
Through the program, the small-electrics vendor has been providing appliances such as The Quiet One, a premium blender; The Vita-Prep, a food-preparation appliance; and the Vitamix XL blender. The company said that since last year, when the program actually launched, it has been supplying these appliances to 150 culinary schools throughout the nation.
