Future of Food Service
I’ve been watching a lot of the food magazines since Covid hit and have noticed that many restaurants and some larger organizations are installing Hydroponic vertical growing systems for fresh produce. Question I have is will we be the ones that will be repairing and servicing this area of food service? Pumps, piping, lighting, and controllers are all part of our jobs now, so why not add in this nitch. There is a market in my area that has a tomato system on the sales floor that people can pick there own or grab a basket full of grape tomatoes. Disney has a system in Orlando to supply their commissary’s. Several NYC and Ohio restaurants have systems on their roofs.
Of course we would have to find parts and information support for this. But the key in my belief is to be able to solve growing problems for our customers.
So what are your feelings on this? I know that eventually we tech’s are going to be asked “Can you look at this”.
