Social Distancing Solutions for Foodservice Operations
By Carla Landi
Several foodservice equipment and supply manufacturers are providing solutions for the challenges social distancing presents to foodservice operators, grocery stores, and other essential businesses. Be sure to stay in contact with your Dealer consultant. They have the industry relationships and knowledge to help you. Being the first to know, they’re working hard to make sure you know what’s available and how to get what you need to lead your operation through this challenging time.
