From the Publisher: See You Soon

With both NAFEM and MUFES in the not-so-distant future, 2023 is looking up.

Randy Hano Headshot

Best wishes to you all for a happy, healthy and prosperous new year! I predict that 2023 will be a year that finally puts all the craziness of the past three years to rest, and allows us all to focus on the things that make the foodservice industry so much fun!

It kicks off with The NAFEM Show, and I for one could not be more excited. Foodservice Equipment Reports, the FER Digital Solutions Group and our sister company Specifi will all be out in full force at the show. Please come by and visit us at Booth 469 if you want to meet the FER editorial team and learn more about how FER DSG, our in-house digital advertising agency, can help you grow your leads and search rankings. Plus, find out how Specifi North America’s newest and most interactive quoting platform is taking the country by storm.

Stop by Booth 469 at The NAFEM Show or make plans to attend MUFES.

Then, be sure to join us April 25-27, 2023, at FER’s Multiunit Foodservice Equipment Symposium (MUFES), happening in beautiful, sunny and warm Tucson, Ariz. If you attended 2022’s conference, you know MUFES is a three-day, jam-packed event that features strong networking opportunities with fellow foodservice operators, seminars with high-level industry professionals that have been curated by the staff at FER, and an excellent environment for all of us to recharge and recalibrate for the year ahead.

And that is just the beginning. So, pack your bags and prepare for takeoff. It’s going to be a fast and exciting ride.
