On January 20, 2011, Steve Donaghy, Executive Vice-President of AquaHealth, spoke with Quentin Incao, Director of Food & Beverage at the Woodmark Hotel in Kirkland, Washington:
Steve: How long has the Woodmark Hotel used AquaHealth’s Sustainable Bottled Water?
Quentin: ‘Bin on the Lake’ Restaurant installed the program in September of 2009. We put in the banquet program about a year ago.
Steve: You use custom bottles, a different one for each program. How is that working out for you?
Quentin: Fantastic! People want to take the bottle home because they have such a unique look. It gives an identity to the bottle and keeps our brand foremost in our guest’s mind.
Steve: What kind of feedback from guests have you received about your sustainable bottled water program?
Quentin: At ‘Bin on the Lake’ it has been extremely positive. It has been a real ‘Wow’ factor and an easy sell for our servers.
Steve: How is your sustainable bottled water sold at ‘Bin on the Lake’?
Quentin: It’s $2.50 per person, all you care to drink, which makes it a fantastic value. It’s a cool concept that is not seen in many local restaurants, but it ensures that most people are drinking it.
Steve: Have you recommend AquaHealth’s sustainable bottled water to others?
Quentin: Yes. I recently gave a tour to managers at the ‘Bellevue Club’ and they are following through with it. I have also recommended the program to other members of the MTM Collection.’
Steve: Quentin, we certainly appreciate the business and thank you for your support
