Do you remember what it was like when it was exciting to go to a trade-show?  It was like the circus had just come to town and you had an all-access pass to go to the midway.

Next week, the industry once again gathers in Chicago for the NRA Show, one of the few events that still brings together all of the disparate silo’s of foodservice.


This year, our factories will be introducing  a slate of innovative products, as  the internet of things arrives here in food equipment land.

A new addition to the show weekend is the Foodable.IO Film Festival on Friday.

Don’t forget to pack your glad-rags, as Saturday night now features newly rescheduled gala’s, awards ceremonies and invite-only events.


  •  Effective July 1, 2016 prices will increase on many Pitco, MagiKitch’n, and Anets products in the range of 3% to 5%. An updated price list detailing the changes will be made available to you within the next 30 days.
