Why RDT Hosts Foodservice Consultant Seminars (and What You May Have Missed This Year)

This September, RDT held another successful FCSI Education Provider Program for foodservice consultants at our factory here in Waxahachie, Texas. The seminar, which brings in consultants from all over the country, is an opportunity for them to interact directly with our team and their peers over the course of two days.

IMG_1130We are proud to be a part of the FCSI Education Provider Program, which “plays an important role in establishing relationships that ultimately lead to supportive future involvements amongst consultants and manufacturers.”

Every year, RDT looks forward to hosting events like these for foodservice consultants. Here’s why these seminars mean so much to us, and the benefits they provide to consultants:


Above all else, our seminars are about education. We want to educate foodservice consultants on refrigeration, who in turn, can take that knowledge and better help clients with their projects.

Refrigeration is an integral part of any foodservice operation, and our goal is to provide consultants with the best information possible about refrigeration systems. From walk-in boxes, remote units, and blast chillers, our team of experts showcase different refrigeration applications and how they work.

But we don’t just tell consultants how equipment works. It’s important to see it for themselves. That’s why we give them an inside look at our Eco Cool and explain each important aspect of the system.

Continuing education is a priority for the professional development of consultants, and we strive to deliver the most value that we can through our seminars.

Through first-hand learning, consultants are allowed to get up close with refrigeration systems, ask the important questions they hear from their clients, and bring back insight that can only be acquired through an on-site visit.

In coordination with the FCSI Education Provider Program, consultants who attend an RDT seminar earn 6 CEU credits towards their annual requirement.


RDT has come a long way, but we wouldn’t be where we are today without forging and maintaining relationships. We are a family company, and when consultants take time out of their busy schedules to visit us, we want to treat them like one of our own.

Relationships are the cornerstone of any business, and we want consultants to know they are dealing with a company that they can trust.

When we receive messages, like the one below, it only reinforces our commitment to building relationships with consultants:

I would like to thank every one of you for a great seminar. We would also like to congratulate the RDT family for their professionalism, hospitality and the quality of your products.

Looking forward to a long lasting relationship between our companies.
