Our Favorite #AroundTheWorldDryer Discoveries of 2016

    As I shared in my last blog, 2016 was an event-filled year at World Dryer. We are thankful for several highlights, including the Green Restaurant Association endorsing our VERDEdri high speed hand-dryer for meeting GRA’s rigorous environmental product endorsement standards.

    2016 was also an action-packed year for us on social media! We are proud to have a very active presence on social media with official company accounts on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ and LinkedIn in addition to a YouTube Channel. If you haven’t already joined our conversation, I hope you will. We find it to be a terrific way to keep up with the latest trends and insights, participate in our community and perhaps most importantly—stay connected and engaged with our customers and partners.

    One of our favorite social media events from the past year was our #AroundTheWorldDryer campaign, where we invited our followers to share pictures of any World Dryer hand dryers they spotted during their travels. It was our social media take on the traditional scavenger hunt game. We had a lot of fun as we watched our audience get involved and share pictures of World Dryer hand dryers from all across the globe.

    So as we welcome in 2017, we wanted to take one last look at the #AroundTheWorldDryer campaign from 2016. In no particular order, here’s a look at a few of the favorites we found:

    Waffle House in Mount Airy, North Carolina


    Frequent road trippers should be no stranger to Waffle House. The eatery’s great big yellow signs are synonymous with highway road stops across America. Since 1955, Waffle House restaurants have offered the winning combination of good food with outstanding service.

    At their Mount Airy, North Carolina location that outstanding customer experience extends to the restrooms equipped with our AirForce hand dryers! The AirForce has a 12 second dry time and quiet operation for sound sensitive areas. What’s even better – the AirForce uses only 20% energy of traditional dryers. That adds up to 30% more energy savings over competitive high speed dryers.

    Discovery Center at the Brookfield Zoo in Brookfield, Illinois


    Lions, tigers, bears and World Dryer hand dryers—oh my! Located just a few miles from World Dryer headquarters in Berkeley, Illinois is the Brookfield Zoo featuring animals from all across the globe. The Brookfield Zoo is also home to the Discovery Center, a banquet facility that offers an array of room options ideal for wedding receptions, banquets, business meetings and more.

    That’s where we spotted this World Dryer hand dryer in its natural habitat!

    Nadon Thai Restaurant in Morpeth, United Kingdom


    Now we’re jumping across the pond for another #AroundTheWorldDryer that was spotted. This one was can be found at Nadon Thai, an authentic Thai restaurant that combines fundamental elements of taste to produce aromatic dishes. If you stop there for a meal (and we are told you should), you’ll find this World Dryer hand dryer in the restroom!

    These were just a few of our favorite #AroundTheWorldDryer pictures so far. There are still plenty of World Dryer hand dryers out there waiting to star in our campaign in 2017! We would love to know what World Dryer hand dryers you may find in your adventures, so snap a picture and let us know.

    All you have to do to participate is:

    • Take a picture or video of a World Dryer hand dryer when you see one
    • Tweet your picture or video to@WorldDryerCorp or post it on the World Dryer Facebook Page and let us know what business and city you found it in
    • Use the hashtag #AroundTheWorldDryer


    We are looking forward to seeing the new pictures this year in the #AroundTheWorldDryer campaign. And as always, we are excited to see what the New Year will bring!
