As always, Hubert’s expert merchandising team had a great time at the 2012 NRA Show in Chicago! Our merchandisers attend this annual showcase to find the best new products to support the trends and needs of our customers in the food service and food retail industries, and we’re happy to say that this year was a major success. Following their trip to the conference, our merchandising experts selected the themes and products that they know will help make your business more successful, and we can’t wait to share them with you! We will post three (3) articles on Hubert’s new products from the 2012 NRA show within the next few weeks, so make sure you like our Facebook page and subscribe to the blog to stay updated!
Our first theme from this year’s NRA Show is the Hydration Station. The USDA reports that, on any given day, approximately 76% of Americans ages 2 years and older will drink plain water as a beverage, making H2O one of the most highly consumed drinks in the United States. American consumers have recently become more educated about the downfalls of the average $8.6 million in annual bottled water sales, including health concerns and increased pollution, so businesses in the food industry must find a way to meet the demand for drinking water while having as little negative impact on the environment as possible. Thanks to Hubert’s merchandising expertise, you can easily find all the products you need to keep your customers hydrated without waste on www.hubert.com! With products such as the TableCraft 2.5 Gallon Beverage Dispenser (Item No. 47643) you can eliminate the sale of costly bottled water, add a water bottle filling station at your site, update your existing drinking fountains, and offer your customers reusable water bottles that will make them and the environment happy.
