The Ashton Report
Martin Flusberg, who founded Powerhouse Dynamics, which Middleby bought earlier this year, and I had a big chat. He asked me how I became a journalist and publisher covering the foodservice equipment market. But I was fascinated by his background, which includes degrees in electrical engineering, a stint teaching at MIT and the founding of several software companies, including Powerhouse Dynamics. Next time you see him, ask him about it all. But he’ll also bend your ear about the benefits of the company’s SiteSage foodservice facility management software, which lets operators monitor every aspect of a restaurant or other facility.
