 It's Pumpkin Spice Season, I Mean Fall Is Here!

The marketing machines are at it again! Pumpkin spice chicken sausage? I don't know about you, but that just sounds terrible. I'll stick with good old pumpkin pie...and a yes, a pumpkin spice latte from time to time. 

Now really, what is the obsession with pumpkin spice? Maybe it is the "unofficial" ushering in of Fall. Summer ends, school starts, Labor Day marks the end of Summer and now, pumpkin spice signals Fall.

And what does fall mean for many of you? Getting busy. Heaters, boilers and water heaters are firing up. Families realize they will be hosting one of the holidays and really need to finish that bathroom renovation, now. 

As we near the first day of Fall, Sept. 23, and you get ready for a busier cold season, remember the Rich-Tomkins team is here and able to support you. 

Until next time,

There is a new Comfort Seats catalog out! The new book includes hospitality, commercial, multi-family and residential models as well as highlighting all of the great Comfort Seats features. For our wholesalers, there is no minimum order and no broken carton charge. 

It's much less expensive to do things right than it is to do things over. When you are in a hurry to get a job done- think Watco. With products like the WatcoFlex drains, QuickTrim kits and Innovator full and half kits you can save plenty of installation time and have a great, American-made product installed. 

Woodford's Model 22 was featured on an episode of This Old House. The 22 is featured in segment 5 of the show and highlights the benefits of having an outdoor wall hydrant with hot and cold water. 
NEWH Scholarship

NEWH, the hospitality networking organization, strives to assist students who are studying for careers in the hospitality field. This year the local chapter, Atlantic City-Philadelphia, is giving away three scholarships for a total of $10,000. If you are in school pursing a career in the hospitality industry, or know someone who is within our area, be sure to apply!

Deadline is Oct. 2 and awards will be presented on Oct. 22 in Philadelphia. 
 Get Ready, No Shave November is Coming

We kicked this idea around last year, but too late to get all of our friends involved. This year, we are ready! Let's raise cancer awareness during the month of November. 

We will get a team together and we want you to join in the fun. 

More details will be provided in Oct., but start planning those beards. We will share before and after beard photos and give prizes away all month long.
