MARCH 7, 2017 – Manhattan, NY – SendaGuy Now, a Manhattan-based startup seeking to revolutionize the way independently owned restaurants in New York City request and receive commercial equipment repairs and maintenance services, was recognized as one of the most exciting New Product Innovations on display at the International Restaurant and Foodservice Show of New York. The recognition came by vote from a panel of judges which included journalists from various restaurant industry trade publications including Total Food Service and Modern Restaurant Management.

This recognition from such a prestigious event, as well as the positive feedback we’ve gotten at the show and from our customers, is confirmation that we are solving a major problem for restaurant owners,” he added.
