10 Tips for Networking

If you’re looking to grow your business, find talent or simply want an opportunity to meet people with your unique business challenges—the solution is to network! You’ve decided to give it a try, but now what?

I asked one our trade account managers, Kristen Cossa, who is at networking events weekly, and she offered the following tips:

  1. Join a trade association. It’s the best way to share ideas and develop new ways to improve the industry.  We all benefit by coming together, and there are so many great opportunities to grow your business with trade networking.
  2. As Epictectus said, “We have two ears and one mouth so that we can listen twice as much as we speak.” Most people don’t realize this, but listening is the most active communication you can do and will ultimately make both parties the most open and comfortable.
  3. Have fun. Trust me, there are worse working conditions than that of a two-hour period where you get to snack, have a cocktail and talk to people who you will either work with someday or become friends with, or if you’re lucky – both.
  4. Be sincere. Every person has a story, so inquire about the person’s life, even outside of work, for that is where true connections can be made.
  5. Wear a nametag and/or remember business cards. It may seem like common sense, but I can’t tell you how many times I have seen people have meaningful conversations but they cannot remember the person’s name.
  6. Tell them what you do. It doesn’t have to be an extended presentation, but if you mention it enough over time, a light bulb will go off when there is a need or a referral request.
  7. Connect, don’t sell! This may be counterintuitive, but as you build a personal connection, potential business opportunities often present themselves, even outside of networking.  People like working with people, not salespeople.
  8. If you can get an attendee list before the event, look up and research who may be a good connection—but not in a creepy or stalker-y way.
  9. Look for the wallflower. Just like in grade school, make sure no one is left out of conversation.  There is often a new person who doesn’t know anyone, include them or introduce them to others.
  10. Follow-up, and follow up soon. Sending someone a quick text or an email with a nice note will help keep you memorable, but will also put your information in their contact history on email/text.

Networking is one of the most important business techniques to keep in your toolbox, with a wide variety of methods to fit every personality and situation.  The above suggestions are pointers, but the only two hard requirements are a willingness to stretch beyond your comfort zone and the intention to pay it forward by helping others when you can.

WITH FOUR STRIKING LOOKS, WOLF’S M SERIES OVENS FIT ANY KITCHEN DÉCOR

Whether your kitchen is traditional, modern or somewhere in between, there’s an M series design that will work beautifully with your customer’s décor.

Contemporary in two styles with its minimalist, handleless design and color LCD touch panel, has a look sleek enough for even the most visionary kitchen.

Professional is bold, confident and eminently functional, with the classic pairing of iconic Wolf red control knobs and gleaming stainless steel.

Transitional, with its stainless frame and black glass, enhances almost any type of kitchen.  Whichever look you choose; you’ll enjoy the advanced performance that has made Wolf the choice of discriminating cooks for almost eighty years.

A New Type of Convection

The new Wolf M series Ovens feature a totally redesigned convection system, dubbed the “Dual Verticross” system.  It was designed to eliminate the need to adjust your oven racks.  It works by two corner column fans with parallel vertical heating elements which then work in tandem to provide just the right heat and airflow.  The preheat time is much quicker with this new system and the heat distribution is uniform, regardless of where you place your sheets.  This new fan system creates a hurricane of heat within the oven cavity, which has no area to escape.

Because Wolf has now removed the large protruding fans from the back of the units and relocated them to the back corners of the unit, the oven capacity has increased to 5.1 cu.ft.  The oven cavity is wider now too!

A New Display

A new and welcome addition is the full color LCD touch screen display that is not only responsive, but nice to look at.  It comes with built-in “Wolf Gourmet” cooking modes that walk you through step-by-step instructions for cooking various proteins.  One of our main gripes with the old L series was the very soft timer alert, which could barely be heard over any regular noise level.  Luckily, Wolf heard our gripes and the new M series timer alert is LOUD and audible – as well as configurable with volume and tone settings.

Adjustable Racks

You will also notice the inside of the door frame is now labeled 1-6, which refer to the 6 different rack positions available.  This is useful when using the Wolf Gourmet Feature.  When preparing a recipe, it will tell you exactly what rack position to use to get the best cooking results every time.

Designers—Have you tried “Reveal” yet?  It’s worth checking out if you are looking for product specifications in an intuitive and quick manner.  Save your project to your account and make changes at any time.  You can even create multiple configurations of different production (including, but not limited to the “M Series”) and decide later which you prefer.

An Interview with John and Jace Kieffer

Kieffer’s Appliances is one of the largest independent appliance dealers in the tri-state area featuring over 60 brands in our Super showroom serving both trade and retail customers.

John, who inspired you to start your business?

Kieffer’s is 100 years old this year. It was around long before we were; my great-grandfather started it. Originally, the store started out selling a combination of tires, ice, and ice boxes (this was before refrigeration) but when our grandfather saw he was losing customers because they were buying appliances he began to shift what he carried and sell the latest hardware. In the 1960s, our store moved to Lansdale to expand, we’ve been here ever since.

Jace, what sparked your interest in continuing your family business?

The opportunity to work hand-in-hand with my dad was a big draw for me out of college. I always grew up in the business — I worked on the delivery trucks and cleaning appliances but it’s pretty easy to come to work every day and get to work with my father.

Jace, how does Kieffer’s specialize in the trade?

We are always thinking of ways to add more value to our trade partners, whether it’s adding a support staff to fill out paperwork for our trade partners so that they don’t have to do anything for certain trade programs, to creating presentations with easily-accessed specs for each appliance, we strive to be a true partner to the trade. We are also involved in many trade associations, from the HBA, to the NKBA, AIA, ASID and NARI.

Jace, what is your favorite appliance?

Easy, my smoker. If you’ve ever had a finely smoked brisket, or even smoked wings, you already get this, but a smoker doesn’t just add flavor, it also keeps meat nice and tender, and aids in preserving meat for the long haul if you want to age it. Whether you hot smoke and cook while you infuse flavor, or cold smoke to add flavor for later, a good smoker is an amazing thing.

********************************************************************************************************************************************

Featured Brand – Wolf

We carry many brands, but one of the most requested brand is Wolf…but did you know you can design a complete Wolf entertainment-ready outdoor kitchen space or select from Wolf’s exceptional built-in or freestanding models available in 30″, 36″, 42″, and 54″ widths.

 

POSSIBILITIES

For added cooking convenience, pair Wolf freestanding and integrated grills with 13″ side burner modules and more. Consider incorporating an outdoor ice maker, refrigerator, warming drawers, and built-in garbage to your (grill)master plan.

HEAT

The key to flawless grilling is uniform heat distribution through direct and radiant heat. With Wolf, direct gas burners deliver high, searing temperatures while briquettes distribute it evenly.

CONSTRUCTION

Just as you would expect from Wolf, the double-walled stainless, precision welds of these well-built grills resist rusting, water retention, and the natural elements.

********************************************************************************************************************************************

Why Kalamazoo Loves Live Fire Grilling

Gas versus charcoal grilling is an age-old debate that rages on amongst avid grillers. The Hearth, Patio and Barbecue Association announced that it will be another strong year for the barbecue industry; showing that over 85 percent of North American households owns a grill or smoker. Grill purchases have been on the rise over the past few years, accounting for 41 percent of all grill sales in the United States, second only to gas grill sales which make up 57 percent of the market.

Gas grills are easy to use and convenient – ideal for weeknights when you’re pressed for time (and patience). But grilling with charcoal is a much more artisanal experience. Cooking with a live fire is a primitive art that requires practice and skill. A lot goes into building the perfect fire, manipulating it to achieve the right heat, and tending to it as you cook. Not to mention there’s something a little bit exciting about playing with fire.

Some people say they love the “flavor” that grilling with charcoal yields; but the biggest difference between gas and charcoal is the heat characteristics. Charcoal doesn’t necessarily flavor your food, because the majority of the wood flavor is burned out in the kiln during the charcoal making process. It does however generate a very dry heat that allows you to perfectly sear a piece of meat and achieve a gorgeous caramelized crust, or reach low heats gas grills can’t, perfect for low and slow cooking. A gas flame, especially one from natural gas, contains water vapor, producing a moist heat that doesn’t deliver the same perfect crust that we expect from charcoal.

Live fire grilling also affords you the option to burn wood. Wood has its own unique heat characteristics that add more flavor to your food. A wood fire is definitely more challenging to cook with than charcoal, as it doesn’t burn as cleanly or evenly, but the flavors you can achieve are phenomenal.

The age-old debate between gas and charcoal continues, but why choose when you can have both? Kalamazoo pioneered a grill that lets you use any combination of gas, charcoal and wood. The Hybrid Fire Grill is the first and only of its kind. Powerful cast brass burners are situated below a Hybrid Fire Grilling Drawer which is designed to hold wood and charcoal. The drawer can be left empty for powerful as-only grilling, or filled with wood and charcoal for an authentic live fire cooking experience. The ability to cook interchangeably with three different fuels means unparallel cooking versatility. Kalamazoo Hybrid Fire Grills allow you to sear, cook with indirect heat, rotisserie roast and smoke – all on the same grill.

Whatever your preference, cooking with a live fire can deliver incredible results. And, from the searing, dry heat that’s typical of charcoal, to the earthy, wood flavor that smoking imparts, there is something deeply primal about mastering a live fire.

A Cocktail Party for 100 People

Written by Brenda Kieffer

Have you ever thought about cooking for 100 people?  Well, here at Kieffer’s, we do it all the time.  Of course, we do have some advantages: a prep crew, a serving staff and serving pieces galore, what we DON’T have may surprise you.  We don’t have many working appliances on the showroom floor.  We cook everything in/on a Woodstone pizza oven, a Lynx grill, a Gaggenau combi-steam oven and one induction burner.  How do we do it?  First, we provide lots of paperwork, menu development and testing, grocery lists, task lists by person and a timeframe and servers’ information sheets.  Three days before the event, ingredients are purchased, washed and stored, then comes the prep work on the day proceeding the event, when the team chops, dices, slices, marinates, mixes and labels everything needed for cooking and assembling the final product.

Event day sees the team setting up the food displays, the servers station, the cooking and assembling stations and “The Pass” or the expediting station, where a chef oversees all the food for quality and appearance before it is taken to event guests.  Almost all the food is cooked “a la minute” or right before it’s served.  For the food that is cooked ahead of time, such as the Lamb Meatballs with Preserved Lemon Tahini, the Gaggenau Combi-Steam oven does a fabulous job of refreshing the meatballs to the proper temperature without recooking them.  The Lynx grill and the Woodstone pizza oven serve as our searing locations with either metal sizzle plates in the pizza oven or directly on the grill, weather permitting, to turn out beautifully cooked proteins.  This is not magic, just a lot of preparation, good people, experience and a few great appliances!

Samsung SmartHub Refrigerator

Your clients may be interested in the Samsung SmartHub refrigerator.  Its main feature is a touch screen or essentially a giant tablet stuck onto a refrigerator.  It has 36 apps, including Spotify, FreshDirect, Uber, and things like a Morning Brief (for an audio rundown of your day) and a Fridge Manager, which controls the temperature of the refrigerator, among other things.

Food

You can use the Meal Planner app to pick a recipe for dinner and tell it to send the necessary ingredients to the Shopping List app (so when you’re at the store you check your smartphone for your list and check off seamlessly). You can even order groceries from services like Instacart, and there are three cameras mounted inside the fridge so when you’re out, you can check the video feed from the Family Hub app on your phone (assuming you don’t keep the items on one of the door shelves: The cameras’ field of view doesn’t include those or the contents of the crisper drawers).

Family

Integrate family member’s schedules by syncing calendars, sharing photos and sending messages (can be cute ones from the notes app) from your refrigerator to your family’s phones and vice versa.

Fun

Stream your favorite music from apps like Spotify or mirror your Samsung TV right on your refrigerator.

Connect

Simplify your life through the SmartThings app by controlling smart devices and appliances; set lights, adjust the thermostat or monitor your baby’s room.

As a refrigerator, the Samsung RF28N9780SR does very well. It offers great thermostat control and temperature uniformity, it’s very quiet and energy efficient, and it’s easy to use. You’ll find ice and water dispensers, spill proof and uniquely adjustable shelves (you can raise and lower them without removing the food), power freeze and power cool functions (perfect for quickly freezing meats or chilling warm beer), and a flexible freezer compartment that can be converted into an additional storage space for fresh foods when needed.

If you’re considering shelling out the cost of the Family Hub, it should be because of the touch screen and added smarts. Otherwise, you can get the Samsung RF28K9070SR—virtually the same refrigerator, without a touch screen, and costs less. Like every appliance decision, it’s about what’s right for you and your customer.

In Memoriam

We are saddened to report that one of our installers, Mike Warner, has passed away. “Mike has been like family to Kieffer’s; his father Ray worked as a sub-contractor for us, starting back in the 70’s and passed his knowledge down to Mike, who has worked as a contractor from early 90’s.  It was just last year that he became our Lead Installer and Trainer.  Mike has played a critical role in making our install division the best out there and he will be sorely missed” said Jace Kieffer, Vice President.

Other than appliances, many knew Mike’s other love was music…especially the Grateful Dead.  We think it would make him smile to leave with you a line from the chorus of “Truckin”, which ends with the stanza:  Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.  Life isn’t straightforward and perhaps we shouldn’t be either, but instead be more creative and flexible when accomplishing goals in life.  RIP Michael Warner 1966-2019.
