In addition, our chain customers continue to drive the largest amount of growth across our geographic markets in this segment. For example, a leading quick service chain has implemented programs centered on Manitowoc's blended ice product category for the London Olympics.

Other core categories also continue to enjoy success with chain customers. One prime example of is our Frymaster oil conserving fryer which has been approved by one of the world’s largest quick service chains and is now replacing its large install base of legacy fryers with our equipment throughout their North American operations. Looking at other product categories, we continue to see considerable interest in our portfolio of advanced cooking technology products, which include our Convotherm combi ovens, Merrychef rapid cook ovens, Garland induction products, and others.
