Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse has been a Chicago icon since 1989 and in keeping with their high standards of food & service have decided on Sanispire to help keep customers' hands safe. The Gibsons Restaurant Group was looking for an elegant yet functional solution to help keep customers and staff safe and sanitized during the COVID-19 pandemic. When they discovered the Sanispire system, a slim profiled, touchless, and free-standing sanitizer unit, they were impressed. When they learned that the units could be custom colored and bear their famous Gibson’s brand, they immediately ordered 100 units.
Gibsons Restaurant Group is known for their dedication to providing unmatched hospitality, quality, and value to its customers. Sanispire’s foot operated hand sanitizing dispensers offer Gibson’s customers and staff a safe and easy way to keep their hands clean and germ-free while enjoying their meal. In addition, the beautifully branded sanitizer stations add touchless elegance to Gibsons’ décor.
“Employees love it, customers love it – everyone loves it!” declared general manager John Pontarelli. “But most importantly, everyone uses it! It’s a very approachable station and people like that its touchless.”
Sanispire, whose founders are frequent patrons at Gibsons Bar & Steakhouse, started manufacturing the patented high-end hand sanitizer dispensers in April of 2020 in their Joliet, Illinois factory. Unimpressed with sanitizing stations seen around town, Sanispire founders Steve Cadkin and Mike Zambon set out to create something that looked attractive, would encourage people to use it, and that businesses could proudly put it at their front door. Constructing the unit from powder coated steel for ultimate durability, the founders designed it in a way that would also be conducive to custom branding.
The final product was an instant hit! In addition to its refined look and effortless function, the Sanispire requires no assembly, can withstand outdoor use, and can easily be bolted to the ground. Sanispire truly offers the perfect sanitizing option for businesses that care about the health and safety of their guests and staff, yet want something that is both attractive, brandable, and easy to use.
