The NRA Show in Chicago ended on Tuesday.

Please share this if you are happy to have attended (or not), but happier still to be home!

23 enlightened manufacturers (those that choose Pecinka Ferri to represent them in Metro NY/NJ/CT) were amongst the many exhibitors at this year’s industry gathering.

As expected,emerging trends were spotted on the show floor:

  • Take out & mobile ordering
  • Farmhouse themes
  • Desserts back in vogue
  • Craft beverage (i.e Nitro Coffee, hand-made brews, etc)
  • Dining as an experience
You’ll be hearing a lot more about what’s on the foodservice horizon in the coming weeks.
