Swisher Hygiene Sponsors Quickly Growing Year-Long NC Chef Battle

CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 2, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Charlotte-based Swisher Hygiene Inc. ("Swisher Hygiene") (Nasdaq:SWSH) (TSX:SWI), a leading provider of essential hygiene and sanitizing products and services, is proud to announce it is a title sponsor of the 2013 "Got To Be NC" Competition Dining Series, a rapidly growing chef competition across North Carolina.

"Got To Be NC" is a year-long dining competition across five regions of the state where restaurant chefs go head-to-head – similar to popular TV show "Iron Chef" – preparing three courses each while using a secret North Carolina-themed ingredient.

"We are excited about our involvement in this local dining competition in our home state," said Tom Byrne, President and Chief Executive Officer of Swisher Hygiene. "It's an opportunity for chefs to showcase their incredible skills and for hungry North Carolinians to sample some of the best meals the Tar Heel State has to offer."

"Kitchen hygiene is crucial to any successful restaurant, and it just makes sense for the state's top chefs to work with Swisher Hygiene, one of the industry leaders in foodservice hygiene," said event founder and coordinator Jimmy Crippen. "This series and the fantastic dining experiences produced by these talented chefs could not be possible without the support of Swisher Hygiene."

The 2013 competition began earlier this year at the Biltmore in Asheville, with Chef Adam Hayes from the Red Stag Grill taking home the win over seven other chefs. Chef battles in the Wilmington region conclude on April 3, and then the competition moves to Blowing Rock starting April 8, where eight chefs from local restaurants will assemble a variety of courses at the Meadowbrook Inn.

After a stop in Greensboro starting in May, the competition moves to Raleigh in July before Charlotte welcomes the event for the first time in September and October. Judging is done by guests, culinary professionals, food writers and local celebrities who use their taste buds to decide round-by-round which chef advances. The overall winning chef takes home $6,000.
