2013 NRA International FoodService Show

It’s that time of year again where we pack ourselves up and head to Chicago, one of the best cities in our country (in our opinion), and showcase CloudClean™ technology to the world! Booth 6770. Along the way we meet some brilliant and exciting people, and steal opportunities to enjoy and savor the international fare that spans the entire event center. Any other tradeshow serves the same airport-like food in select “food court” areas, but here it is a delectable feast for the eyes and taste buds!  It is a certain highlight of the year.

Although tradeshows are usually all about work, this one it doesn’t have to be at the NRA Show. Continue reading
