This month the HX:Expo in New York celebrated it’s centenary with a major revamp. Quality and commitment remain paramount for the most important trade show in the North America’s hospitality industry, but the show is looking forward to the next 100 years with the introduction of a new layout, live presentations and panel discussions.
Many awards were presented throughout the show including the ‘Foodservice Pioneering Concept’. The proud winner of this award was Bienvenu, a collaboration between Architectural firm Bruner/Cott and foodservice design and consulting firm Colburn & Guyette of Massachussets.
Bienvenu is a mobile Tapas & Wine Bar – a silently unfolding table which transforms into a bar with seats, POS counter, cold display case and a wine bar.
The concept, serving a minimalist menu of a dozen or so small-plate selections is completely self-contained with the exception of a roll-in, roll-out under counter refrigeration unit (to store in the host site kitchen). Bienvenu folds away completely when the unit is closed.
“Bienvenu is a concept that can fit a niche in a variety of settings. Its upscale, minimalist approach provides an ‘out of the box’ option to grab-n-go customers, where they can stop and relax with a glass of wine and small plate for a while and then be on their way again”
This year’s Host Expo in Milan was a very special one for Enomatic. We unveiled the newest member of the Enomatic family – The Eno One!

Of course, all our Enomatics offer you a guaranteed, accredited 30 day preservation guarantee and innovative technology. The Eno ONE gives you flexibilty and control for bar, restaurant or your own home. Plug in and enjoy!
The month of October has long been associated with the Pink Ribbon Campaign for breast cancer and this year Enomatic got involved in the fight as well. Wine cards carrying the Pink Ribbon logo were available to buy with a percentage of every card sold going to the Susan G Komen for the cure fund.
We were very pleased with the response of the businesses who helped us support this cause in it’s first year and we look forward to even bigger and better things next year!
A special mention to Vini Culture in Frederick, MD, Vino Venue of Atlanta, GA and The Wine Room in Winter Park, FL and of course to all of the customers who supported the cause by purchasing the wine cards.
The check was presented to representatives of the Susan G Komen fund in Greater Atlanta this week with plans to work more closely together for next year’s Pink Ribbon Campaign.
Three million survivors and counting…
