OAKVILLE, ON, Jan. 24, 2013 (CNW) -SCA, the maker of the Tork® brand of away-from-home paper products, today announces the launch of the Stand and Counter Xpressnap Signature napkin dispensers, adding to North America's No. 1 napkin dispenser family. The Xpressnap family of napkin dispensers launched in 2003 and more than three million have been placed in foodservice operations throughout North America. The Xpressnap Signature line debuted in 2012 with Tabletop and In-Counter dispensers.

Serving the foodservice industry for 10 years, Xpressnap products feature the One Napkin, Every TimeTMdesign that guarantees 25 per cent reduction in napkin usage, translating into less waste and fewer refills. The new Signature Stand and Counter dispensers feature a modern design preferred by customers and a higher napkin capacity, with the Signature Stand holding 1,000 napkins and the Signature Counter holding 500. Additional features include a new door on the Signature Stand to make refilling easier, and the Signature Counter has both vertical and horizontal dispensing options. The Signature Counter dispenser also comes in a stainless finish, as does the Signature line's existing Tabletop and In-Counter models.

To celebrate the availability of the Signature Stand and Counter dispensers, Tork is offering new Xpressnap Signature customers* the chance to win a grand prize media package valued at $25,000 tailored to their advertising, public relations and social media needs. Five runners-up will also receive a similar package valued at $5,000. Interested restaurant owners can find additional details on the Tork website.

"The Xpressnap system provides more value than other napkin dispensers and the addition of the Stand and Counter models to the Signature line offer foodservice operators placement flexibility," said Suzanne Cohen, Foodservice Marketing Director for SCA AfH Professional Hygiene North America.

The dual-purpose dispensers can also be used to generate revenue through the AD-a-Glance insert panel, which allows restaurants to use the large display window to promote specials, showcase upcoming events or even sell display space to nearby businesses. The free Xpressnap® AD-a-Glance® Customizer tool lets foodservice providers frequently change and personalize the displays in their Xpressnap's AD-a-Glance window.

*Contest available to new customers signing a Tork Advantage Agreement for the Xpressnap Signature between January 22, 2013 and April 30, 2013.
