What is GFEN?

The Gas Foodservice Equipment Network (GFEN) is an international alliance of utilities, foodservice equipment manufacturers, gas industry associations and foodservice trade allies organized to be a source of gas solutions for the commercial foodservice segment.

How we Help

The Gas Foodservice Equipment Network’s goal is to help foodservice operators improve productivity, efficiency, and profitability. More than a million buildings in North America contain some type of commercial or institutional foodservice including restaurants, bars, fast food chains, cafeterias, hotels, motels, long term care, institutional operations, etc.

Clean-burning natural gas-fired products offer commercial foodservice customers comfort, ambiance, and convenience.  A variety of natural gas-fired appliances are used in today’s commercial kitchens.  Over 100 manufacturers are producing more than 600 models of gas-fired kitchen appliances alone.  An additional 100+ manufacturers produce natural gas fired technologies that are used outside of the kitchen for things such as HVAC, humidity control, water heating, power generation, gas lights/torches, patio heaters, fireplaces/fire pits and booster water heaters. This variety of gas-fired appliances and technologies offers a great opportunity foodservice operators to improve operations, save energy, improve customer comfort, etc.
