BEKINS SUPPORTS KITCHENAID’S 10,000 CUPCAKES, ONE GREAT CAUSE

Bekins participates in KitchenAid 10,000 cupcakes campaign

Bekins recently baked cupcakes for a great cause and we encourage you to do the same! As a part of their “10,000 Cupcakes, One Great Cause” campaign in October, KitchenAid will donate $1 to Susan G. Komen  for every original photo of cupcakes posted to Twitter and Instagram. The October posts have to include the hashtags #10000cupcakes and #donate.

Since 1982, Susan G. Komen has funded more than $920 million in breast cancer research, more than $2.0 billion in medical care, community and provider education. They also provide psychosocial support while serving millions in over 60 countries worldwide.

One our employees in Grand Rapids, Erika, has shown off her talent for baking cupcakes at some of our events through the years.

This month she baked two dozen pink cupcakes for customers at our store. She also wrapped them with the instructions for how others can help the cause. We have a quick video of her work below:

YOU too CAN JOIN IN ON THE 10,000 CUPCAKES CAMPAIGN

We encourage you to share photos of cupcakes with the hashtags #10000cupcakes and #donate. Mention us @_bekins so that we can like and share it too!

NO COMMERCIAL NEEDED: PRO STYLE APPLIANCES FOR HOME

Want to cook like a pro at home? We suggest you test pro style appliances in our Bekins showrooms instead of buying a commercial appliance for your home.

COMMERCIAL APPLIANCES BELONG IN COMMERCIAL KITCHENS

Commercial appliances will likely fail a home inspection. Even if they did pass inspection, they do not work well at home for a variety of reasons:

  • VOID: Most commercial products void the warranty if used in a residential setting.
  • LOUD: They make a lot of noise.
  • LOOKS: Manufacturers often build commercial appliances deeper than residential cabinets and counter tops. They also require more space to vent. So commercial appliances will likely leave ugly gaps and extend into your working space.
  • HOT: Commercial ranges produce more heat which means you will need a commercial grade vent. Prepare for costly makeup air and more noise.
  • NOT COLD ENOUGH: Commercial refrigerators only need to keep food fresh for a day or two. So if you want your food to last longer, choose a home refrigerator.
  • SERVICE: Many commercial companies will not service appliances in a home. Residential appliance companies do not have the proper training or access to the right parts. Which means, you will likely struggle to find someone to fix your commercial appliance in the home.
  • AND THAT’S JUST THE TIP OF THE ICEBERG!

A BETTER FIT FOR YOUR HOME: PRO STYLE APPLIANCES
