71 T wenty-eight foodservice equipment deal- ers from across the U.S. came to the Ali Group headquarters in Vernon Hills, Ill., to at- tend the PRIDE Centric Resources PEAK (Pride, Excellence, Achievement, Knowledge) Training Event. Following a wel- come dinner, the at- tendees had a full day of training sessions on equipment from Ali Group brands ACP/ Amana Menumaster, Beverage-Air, Champion, CMA, Ice-O-Matic, Metro, Scotsman and Victory. To conclude the event, the dealers and their Ali Group trainers en- joyed a Chicago Cubs game from one of the unique rooftop loca- tions across the street from Wrigley Field. "The Ali Group's Headquarters and Training Facility in Vernon Hills is de- signed to support the very goals that encom- pass PRIDE's PEAK Training program," says Cathy Ellickson, CFSP, senior vice pres- ident - dealer relations for PRIDE Centric Resources. "With large classrooms, multiple meeting spaces, and a dedicated support team, the Ali Group visit was the highlight of our Summer PEAK training session. We are thankful to have suppliers like the Ali Group who strive to improve and enhance our training program at all levels. PRIDE's goal is to have a highly motivated and en- gaged workforce led by a talented manage- ment team in a work environment that is stimulating and rewarding to both current and prospec- tive team members. We have embraced the concept that selling and product training should encompass the troubles that end users experience, thereby enabling those team members to help customers deal with and solve the every- day problems they encounter." "We at the Ali Group were pleased to once again host the PRIDE PEAK Training Event," said Filippo Berti, chief executive officer, Ali Group. "This is just part of our commitment to the important com- munity of dealers. Our Training Center in Vernon Hills provides the perfect location for them to see the latest in innovative equipment. Partnering with dealers and con- sultants to help them grow their businesses is one more way that we demonstrate our position as leader in the foodservice equip- ment industry."
