You Have Something They Don’t Running a business isn’t for kids. I say that for many reasons. You don’t see young people managing businesses on their own (I’m not talking about being a manager under the guidance of an owner or a franchise). They don’t have many of the qualities maturity brings that are needed in business – patience, judgment, tenacity, long term vision. They may think that a bunch of money in the cash drawer means you can spend it, when in reality you may have payables to cover. They may take a deal that sounds too good to be true, and it turns out to be just that. They may not be able to weather a downturn, and panic. And for a young adult, retirement may be as far off as a meteor hitting the earth – theoretically possible but not something to worry about. You’re a grownup, for better or worse, and you’ve lived through a jam, even if you’ve only been in the business world 10 years. A story still unwinding in the business world is that of a company called Theranos and its charismatic founder. You can Google it if you’re not familiar. A 19 year old Stanford dropout, the founder had a vision to revolutionize the way blood tests are conducted. Today we use a big vial drawn painfully from a vein in your arm, but she envisioned the same tests with a little pinprick on your finger, like a diabetes test. It was a great story, and the founder’s passion and youthful energy made for great print and TV. Her young face was on dozens of magazines, she was invited to all manner of speaking engagements. The company she founded was once valued at $10 billion, and her 50% share made her the youngest self made female billionaire ever.

The only problem was, the system didn’t work. Theranos couldn’t perform all these tests with a fingertip pinprick. The company manipulated results, lied to investors, and eventually collapsed. It’s worth effectively zero now. The founder is subject to various criminal investigations and may yet go to jail. I expect she really did believe all those things about the company. I expect she really did have that vision. The press made her into a rock star, but when reality dawned and the vision didn’t work, she didn’t have the judgment and maturity to back off. There was no Plan B. You do have judgment. You know that, no matter what this summer’s sales are, you’re going to wind down your season and start anew next year. For most of you, it’s been a great one. Plenty of hot outdoor weather, no major setbacks in the 48 states (Hawaii experienced a hurricane). We’re still in hurricane season. We’ve seen it happen recently in the Gulf Coast, The usual Florida to North Carolina coast, and all the way up to New York. The other shoe may yet drop. But it’s August and you are going to weather it out – no pun intended. You will count the money and plan for next year. You will make your payments to your vendors and bank before you celebrate. Here’s something that you know that the twentysomethings who open a hipster bar, that the kids who attract venture capital to a goofy startup renting things through an app, don’t. You have the long term vision to know how to make it work next year and for the foreseeable future.

WHEN FAIR IS

NOT EQUAL By Kent Bernhard, MassMutual Business Journal

A majority of family business owners plan to split their companies equally between their children. But what they’re planning could be a recipe for family conflict – and a poor outcome for the business.

C

Fair does not necessarily mean eqUAL Paul Sessions, director of the Center for Family Business at the University of New Haven.

6 REFRIGERATION Magazine │August 2018

onsider a situation in which one sibling has devoted his or her career to the family business and shown an aptitude for it, while another has chosen a different path. Is it fair to either of those siblings to expect them to take equal parts in running the family business when mom and dad are gone? In many cases, it isn’t. But nearly 60 percent of business owners say they plan to divide ownership of their business equally among their children, according to MassMutual’s 2018 Business Owners Perspective study.

In cases in which one family member works in the business and others don’t, there are ways to transfer the wealth of the business fairly. For instance, the business can be recapitalized, and money divided, or the family can create voting and non-voting stock. That way, family members who manage the business are given more say over its direction than those who aren’t involved by providing the benefit of the family business to all and perhaps tapping the less-involved family members’ input on more strategic questions.


FAMILY BUSINESS

Another way some business owners opt to help create an equal distribution of their estate is by utilizing the death benefit in a life insurance policy. Those children who do not get ownership in the business instead get a larger share of the insurance benefits at the owner’s passing.

Those working in the business may begin receiving their inheritance today in the form of ownership, whereas those not involved must wait until death to receive theirs. While many owners have their children’s best interests in mind, their intentions and visions don’t necessarily line up with the reality at least as seen through the next generation’s eyes. For example, a family-owned business may currently be run by the elder generation. The husband-andwife owners have four children, who at various times, have worked in the business in different capacities. The youngest child works in the business

Every family, and every business, is different, Sessions says, requiring a nuanced approach to transition. “You have to understand the situation to make determinations about ownership,” he says. “And ownership is only part of the succession. You have ownership succession … you have management succession, whether it be to family members or non-family members. We have to look really carefully at what we want to accomplish in transferring ownership from one generation to the next.”

Here are some key questions and points business owners should consider when trying to be both fair and equal:

→ Should the business be divided

equally between children working in the business and those not involved in the business?

→ If the children not involved in the

business don’t receive ownership, what other assets can they receive that are equal in value?

→ Are you comfortable with

children outside the business receiving liquid assets versus those working in the business receiving an illiquid asset? REFRIGERATION Magazine │ August 2018 7


and appears to be the only one who is committed to the business long term. The parent-owners believe they are doing a loving act by splitting the business equally among the four children. However, when learning of the plan, the youngest daughter may feel jilted. It’s not uncommon to hear a comment such as “I don’t think it’s fair that my siblings get to benefit from two careers and I only get to benefit from one.” “You don’t usually find courses offered on how fathers and sons can have communication. Or fathers and daughters or mothers and daughters,” Sessions says. “Sometimes some fairly fundamental work has to happen before we get into resolving conflicts; before we get into beginning to create a plan for transition, for succession.” Sessions says that families in which the father or mother, depending upon who runs the business, is dictatorial and arbitrary in deciding who will do what have the most trouble. Other difficulties arise, Sessions says, when owners don’t face the fact that one day they won’t be around to run the business. “The ones who say, ‘You know what? I’m going to let them figure

it out when I die,’ that’s usually a recipe for a horror show,” he says. But family business transitions don’t have to be contentious. Owners recognize that passing along a business takes time, often months and not years, as well as communication and accountability on all sides, are setting up their business and their family for longterm success. RM

A lot of it has to do with transparency, has to do with reasonableness, has to do with excellent communication, has to do with a willingness to compromise and to look at the good for the group, People can work their way toward that kind of a situation. Paul Sessions, director of the Center for Family Business at the University of New Haven.

EVERYTHING ELSE IN YOUR LIFE RUNS FROM AN APP

Shouldn't your delivery routes? Clipboards are one of those items, like a telephone attached to the wall or a sheet of carbon paper, which you have to explain to your children. The idea of relying on sheets of paper to keep up with inventory or tasks is downright quaint today. Yet for many readers, the clipboard was as essential to a packaged ice delivery route as a Magliner or the keys to the truck.

The curve for development of the smartphone world has accelerated much more steeply than the desktop computer did. It has only been eleven years since the introduction of the iPhone, which then spurred growth in the pre-existing Android system. Today, pretty much every human need from food and shelter to companionship is easily accessed from a smartphone.

The industry has gone through quite a few technology steps. A sheaf of orders got replaced by a single sheet printed by computer. Signing for delivery went from paper to a handheld device. Today, almost everyone who works in your plant has a sophisticated device that can do the work that an expensive dedicated tablet, a scanner, a GPS tracker, and a point of sale device can do. They already own it, you didn’t even have to buy it for them.

That phone, that everybody in your plant already has, can house you entire Direct Store Delivery (DSD) system. Software decisions are huge - they can affect every employee and every aspect of your business. They require training and adaptation. Some employees may be resistant and “like it the old way.” It’s not a decision to be taken mildly.

The same technology that powers the sharing economy ecosystem - the Ubers and Lyfts, the Airbnb and VRBO, if you live in a city with ZipCars or rental electric scooters - can power your packaged ice business.

REFRIGERATION is providing an overview of a few current offerings in the software field that are designed specifically for packaged ice or DSD businesses in general. The companies will all be very happy to speak with you about specifics of your operation and help you make a decision.

RouteMan

kcsgis.com/routeman The very best system for any company is one that was designed specifically for the company. Hardly anyone has that luxury, usually only the largest companies with their own IT departments. The packaged ice industry has a software vendor that has created a package based on experience with packaged ice clients, and it may be as close to custom as you’re going to get. Based on a mix of cloud based software and Android apps for drivers, RouteMan comes from Keet Consulting, who made a name in geolocation software. RouteMan is proprietary, using a custom created platform that maintains contact with trucks at all times. Two way communication lets your back office update routes and quantities, and lets drivers confirm and update amounts stocked. Integration with accounting software is included. RouteMan isn’t an off the shelf software and quotes prices for each engagement.


TECHNOLOGY

Cool Running

The company is small and specialized, primarily founder Tony Dickson and contract programmers. The company doesn’t publish prices but is available for quotes.

www.coolrunningsoftware.com Created by an ice producer, Cool Running is a mix of components from app vendors that are integrated to create a seamless experience specifically for the packaged ice industry.

Mobile Conductor www.mobileconductor.com

The company uses elements from software already serving the industry: Ice Q, which integrates with major merchandisers, and US Fleet Tracking, a GPS based routing and monitoring app. They combine these with an accounting integration platform and an office software suite to make a full packaged ice management suite.

Mobile Conductor provides a platform for your delivery and inventory management, and various levels of service can provide integration with more of your system. An interesting feature is an emphasis on product temperature, which may not be critical to you but shows a company focus on product

quality. They stress real time communication between trucks in the field and the back office. Their product offers data interchange through several standards with your accounting software, so you’re not limited to a single accounting package. The company doesn’t promote a routing system as part of their package. It’s a per user fee - you could use this system to support a single truck at a modest cost, or add users as you grow. They also provide enterprise pricing for custom implementations.

Prism Visual Software

www.prismvs.com

MobileFrame is really a tool a software developer might use to create a custom mobile app. Because of demand, though, the company has developed some off-the-shelf apps that can be further customized within their system, including an extensive Direct Store Delivery module. Their standard system emphasizes driver accountability, inventory control, and location awareness. They don’t promote a route optimization system or integration with accounting software, but because of the high level of customization these could certainly be integrated. The company also prices on levels of service, although their basic level can accommodate up to 75 users.

RouteStar Solutions www.routestarsolutions.com Right off the bat, RouteStar emphasizes its connectivity to the QuickBooks product and its routing capabilities. They even include packaged ice delivery as one of their industries served, but they don’t have a customer testimonial or case study of the industry. They also offer rental equipment tracking (merchandisers) as part of their offering. They promote their flexibility in what they can provide you and how you want to adopt. The company offers a variety of purchase options, including the industry standard subscription, but also a more conventional purchase option.

12 REFRIGERATION Magazine │August 2018

Prism offers a variety of services for web based businesses, including route management and direct store delivery. It’s an a la carte offering, and you’ll have to build your own software from their wide variety of product. They offer integration with QuickBooks and other major accounting software. The company emphasizes a proprietary software called MiniMate, which can work on older generation Palm and Windows devices, as well as smartphones. Prism customizes each of its solutions and does not promote off the shelf pricing tiers, but creates custom price quotes. RM

Software decisions are huge - they can affect every employee and every aspect of your business. They require training and adaptation...It’s not a decision to be taken mildly.


SUPPLIER ICE SCULPTING SPOTLIGHT

Vogt Ice Focuses on Future HFC refrigerants are experiencing a phase-out in a variety of markets across the globe due to their high global warming potential (GWP). This forces OEMs to build forward thinking business strategies when selecting a replacement refrigerant for use in their equipment. The catch with synthetic refrigerants in ice machines is to find the perfect balance between something that will work well in the application and be available for purchase for the foreseeable future. Finding this balance has been Vogt’s focus. Vogt’s long-term refrigerant solution is to use HFO blends that are similar in properties to R134a. These hydroflouroolefin-based refrigerants have very low GWPs that are in line with the EU F-Gas Regulation phase-down and with projected refrigerant regulations in the United States. In November 2017 at the IPIA, Vogt introduced the HFO10. This is the first Tube-Ice machine designed to run on an HFO blend (R513A). This blend, along with other R134a-like HFO blends, are expected to be long term synthetic refrigerant solutions, but are likely to evolve to find themselves replaced by pure HFO refrigerants of the R1234 family. This family of pure HFOs will be retrofittable to the HFO10, giving it a secure and well-defined future as the market evolves. In addition to environmental benefits, the HFO10 operates at lower head pressures (approx. 130 psi), putting less overall stress on the system. Vogt utilizes Bitzer’s innovative CSH semi-hermetic compact screw compressor – a robust design that is more reliable than a reciprocating compressor. A further benefit of the CSH is that it is quieter when operating than the equivalent reciprocating design. Energy efficiency remains excellent with the machine consuming as little as 2.68 KWH per 100 lbs of ice produced. The HFO10 is just the beginning of Vogt’s new focus to innovate and to introduce superior products to the marketplace.

PALLETIZING MERCHANDISERS


GOING GREEN

The Trend of Eliminating So Much Plastic Has Begun “Paper or plastic?” will soon no longer be a question at your local Kroger. On August 21, 2018, the supermarket chain revealed they are phasing out single-use plastic bags at their more than 2,700 locations as part of their Zero Hunger | Zero Waste campaign. The goal is to no longer offer a plastic bag option during checkout by 2025. Seattle-based QFC will be the company’s first retail division to phase out single-use plastic bags by 2019. Other major chains that fall under the Kroger umbrella include Ralphs, Pick n’ Save, Food 4 Less and Harris Teeter. More than 380 billion plastic bags are used in the U.S. every year, according to the Environmental Protection Agency. Out of the 380 billion, an estimated 100 billion are thrown away every year and less than five percent are recycled, according to the press release. As part of their ongoing initiative, Kroger also shared their goal of diverting 90 percent of waste from the landfill by 2020. “It’s a bold move that will better protect our planet for future generations,” says Rodney McMullen, Kroger’s chairman and CEO. Kroger isn’t the first company to announce their environmental efforts. Last month, Starbucks announced it would be phasing out plastic straws in over 28,000 of their stores worldwide by 2020. In June, McDonald’s announced their plans to phase out plastic straws in their European stores with a possible future rollout of the policy in the U.S., BBC reports. to

Many of these companies, including Starbucks, cite ocean conservancy in their decision to remove plastic straws from their stores. According to a 2016 New Plastic Economy report, it is estimated there will be more plastic in the ocean than straws by the year 2050. RM

THE BIG Chill

America has a knack for inventing reasons to spend money on things—like its tradition of putting frozen water into beverages. Ancient Chinese, Greeks, Romans, and Persians all had methods of harvesting and storing winter ice, but it was undoubtedly the Yanks who turned it into a cottage industry and eventually a multibilliondollar global supply chain. Today, despite the best efforts of certain American moguls, not all nations have the same fervor for frozen H2O. Ask for an ice-cold Coke in Europe, and you’re likely to get a can plus a glass with a few measly cubes, at best. And the veritable bucket of free iced tap water Americans expect when they sit down at a restaurant? Keep dreaming. There’s some notable exceptions—such as southeast Asian nations which, among other chilled beverage advancements, have developed the delicious and necessary habit of drinking beer over ice—but many countries view iced beverages as somewhat of a swindle: Why would you ever allow free frozen water to take up valuable glass real estate?
