Roopairs was ignited in the kitchen by founders Ray & David Bartolomucci. The brothers grew up in their father's restaurants in the SF Bay Area, and from real-life experiences, they dealt with equipment breakdowns. Ray & David know the logistical nightmares of "1-800" numbers for warranty service and "Old School" communication of Pen & Paper with service companies.
The brothers would always ask each other, "Why are equipment breakdowns such a pain? Why are Food Equipment Repair Companies still running on Pen & Paper or antiquated software from the '80s?" They figured there had to be a better way to optimize Food Equipment Service. And… That's how Roopairs was born.
The journey of Roopairs led them down a path to discover how broken technology is across the Food Equipment Supply Chain in the service industry. The industry is so complex because there are so many different players involved: Manufacturers, Reps, Dealers, Service Agents, Parts Distributors, and Foodservice Operators. Each player in the Food Equipment Supply Chain somehow dips their toes in service, and Food Equipment Repair Companies are at the center of everyone to keep kitchens running smoothly.
But why now?
The food delivery market is exploding, and commercial food equipment is in more demand than ever before. By 2030, the food delivery market will be a 1 trillion dollar market. It is currently a $40 Billion market to put things in perspective. Why is this relevant? Commercial Food Equipment Service Companies will be in more demand than ever before to repair and maintain equipment.
The Roopairs Mission is to Unify the Food Equipment Industry with Modern technology that keeps commercial kitchens hoppin' and food on the table. Foodservice Operators across the world would not be able to feed their customers and families if it wasn't for service companies. Finally, there is software dedicated to the everyday service heroes. Finally, it's time for software dedicated to Food Equipment Service Companies and connecting everyone involved in the service supply chain.
