Hussmann Road Show Highlights Innovative Food Retailing Solutions
BRIDGETON, MO (USA), July 26, 2021 – Hussmann Corporation, a Panasonic company, today hits the road with its Shop the Future Mobile Experience. The multi-destination showroom on wheels includes a collaborative presentation of Hussmann’s innovative products and services, including updates and additions to last year’s display. The trailer also features new technology designed to enhance the virtual experience. The custom 53-foot-long, 700-square-foot trailer will be traveling throughout North America for the next 14 weeks. Shop the Future has scheduled stops at close to 40 locations, primarily visiting customers Hussmann was not able to connect with last year.
“Grocery retailing has entered a new era, as the recent pandemic fueled major changes seemingly overnight,” said Hussmann CEO Tim Figge. “Hussmann’s customer-focus mindset and better together attitude motivates us to bring our latest food retailing solutions directly to our customers.”
For the past 115 years, Hussmann has focused on evolving, paving the way, and raising the industry standard to provide retailers with best-in-class products and services. The Shop the Future Mobile Experience carries that same ambition, illustrating innovative solutions to grow e-commerce programs, address labor constraints, increase in-store buying, and tackle an ever-changing regulatory environment.
