Digital convenience

Consumer demand for contactless options has risen significantly over the last year. With Hussmann's digital convenience solutions, customers can order online or via app, then pickup at a drive-thru window or a Smart Locker - providing a seamless experience for both the retailer and the consumer.

Drive-thru integration

With so many convenience stores and food retailers now offering freshly prepared food, it's only natural that many are looking to expand to drive-thru. At Hussmann, we provide everything from leading-edge hardware and software to store design services to ensure your drive-thru is seamlessly integrated into your store.

A commitment to sustainability

Due to growing concerns around the impact of climate change on our world, many convenience store operators are making sustainability a priority, launching initiatives to improve energy efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, phase out single-use plastics, adopt eco-friendly packaging, reduce food waste, sustainably source their coffee and more.

At Hussmann, we’re committed to moving our industry forward while leaving our planet better than we found it. This includes developing innovations that reduce our carbon footprint and protect our environment. In all areas of our company, from the equipment we design and build, to the services we provide, to our internal processes, we are focused on improving energy efficiency and reducing refrigerant emissions in our display cases and refrigeration systems. In fact, we recently introduced refrigerated cases with 99% less environmental impact.

Hussmann has been leading the way in energy efficiency for decades, and we offer retail optimization services to help our partners lower energy use and costs throughout their operations. We proudly support the U.S. EPA GreenChill Partnership in its efforts to recognize food retailers that reduce refrigerant emissions and decrease their impact on the ozone layer and climate change.
