Congratulations Jane!

S

You sure left a good mark on the ice industry.

She came from a software background, working for Burroughs in the late 1970’s. She was ‘dispatched’ to do a software installation for Starrett Corp., and while there, made many friends, as is easy to do for Jane McEwen. As a result of Jane’s top-notch skill set, she was offered a job by Starrett’s ‘then-president’ Lamar Kirby, and she accepted. Burrough’s loss was the ice industry’s gain. Two years after joining Starrett, Leer purchased the company and began a series of growth and ownership moves, eventually shutting down the Starrett manufacturing plant in Tampa, The Tampa airport was buying property all around the Starrett manufacturing plant so it was the time to leave. Also, the associated company of Star Cooler, with their manufacturing operation based out of Dumas, Arkansas, was purchased. Jane enjoyed a successful merchandiser sales manager position with Leer until 1997, and during this time, she also served on the Board and numerous committees within the PIA as was the association’s name back then. There were management associations which had been picked to run the PIA but none so effective as when Jane was voted in to serve as Executive Director of the IPIA. When I asked Jane about the transfer of PIA documents from the former association management team, she said, “Billy Quinton of the then Triangle Ice Co. managed to get all of the records in August of 1997 from the management firm in Raleigh, NC, and there was such quantity that he had to have it sent by LTL. The former association management firm had it stored in their vast offices and storage units, and this was ALL transferred to Jane…with just 6 months to go for Richard Thibault’s Convention as PIA Chairman of the Board, scheduled for New Orleans in January of 1998.

All this to say, there is no easy task in Association Management. But Jane did the best job of any team that had managed the group to date. Jane made it look easy, although we all know differently. Many people don’t realize that Jane comes from a deep history of icemen. Jane’s maternal grandparents were involved in the ice industry. Her grandfather was President of the Florida Ice Association. Refrigeration Magazine featured him on the cover. She covered this eloquently and fully in her piece featured within our pages this month. I asked her how she didn’t panic, and how she managed to pull off the first convention of her IPIA Executive Director position with a garage or two of convention material still in boxes. But then I remembered her strengths and I had my answer. She is aware of her attention to technical detail, her ability to listen and listen well, and her ability to establish and keep relationships, speak volumes of her. Personally, I met Jane and both hers and my first convention, which was the North Carolina/VIrginia Ice Association. It was held in Charlottesville, Va., at the Grove Park Inn.


I met so many people who were to remain friends to this day. Jane continued to work with and for most of the folks she met as well. Only Jane was the consummate professional from the first minute she stepped on the scene. I’d still have some polishing to do. We may not have worked together, but we had many deeper-than-surface-talks and left me with gratitude for having her as a friend and colleague. In 1997, the year she took over, there were 82 industry members. Since that time, 67 have been bought out. Still the industry remains, just as it has since ice was carved out of the Great Lakes, Hudson River, and so many other frozen bodies of water. What’s ahead for Jane, I asked. She said, “Remember now, I’m a Tampa girl, and I’m looking forward to being with my friends, and being in my town. Who knows, maybe you’ll come to visit!” There is that kindness and welcoming hospitality again. I’m excited for her shining future.

Retiring IPIA Executive Director’s Corner

By Jane McEwen

As I start to wind down after 23 years of serving as Executive Director for this great Association, thought I would share some sentimentality of some family ice history. Looking back who would have thought, much less me, that as I entered the ice industry four decades ago, I was told by my mother whose maiden name was Perry that her family had years of history in the ice industry. A few years after my mother passed in the 80’s, I found the pictures and the original Refrigeration magazine from 1922 in an old steamer trunk. My mother saved everything as you can see. In 1913, Clyde Perry formed the Perry Paint and Glass Co of Tampa. Within a couple of years, his cousin Will Perry took over the operation as Clyde went into the ice business in 1915 as manager and proprietor of Consumers Ice Company in downtown Tampa (pictured on next page).

In quick order, Clyde became active in the associations and by 1919 he was serving on the Committee of Condolence for the Southern Ice Exchange and Executive Committee/Treasurer of the Florida Ice Manufacturer’s Association. In 1920, Industrial Refrigeration magazine, announced the name change of the Florida Ice Manufacturers Association to the Florida Ice and Public Utilities Association as approved by members at their semiannual meeting held in Daytona Beach in April of 1920. Grandfather Clyde Perry, and Treasurer of the Association at the time noted that ‘That prospects for the coming year of ice business are very bright, everybody expecting the heaviest consumption ever recorded’ It was also stated in the April, 1920 edition of Refrigeration Magazine which as you all know is still operating today, “Clyde Perry of the Consumers Ice Co. of Tampa, FL is a living example of how round and luxurious an ice manufacturer can grow by the right business methods, right thinking and right living” They sure had a way with words 100 years ago.

In 1922, grandfather Clyde was graced on the cover of Refrigeration magazine (right) as ‘President and General Manager of the Consumers Ice Co., Tampa, FL. One of the most prominent and progressive Southern Ice manufacturers. That must surely have been an honor for him


Clyde Perry, Sr. died in November of 1931 when he was hit by a truck while changing a tire at night driving back to Tampa on the 2- lane road from Plant City. My mother Rosalee Perry was 10 at the time. Her oldest brother Clyde Perry, Jr and eldest son of Clyde Perry Sr. kept the interest in the company. Their mother, my grandmother, had since passed and upon graduation with a degree in Business in 1943 from the Florida State College for 1922 Cover of Women, now known at Florida Clyde Perry, Tampa, FL Refrigeration Magazine State University in Tallahassee, FL, mom went to work for the ice company managing the books and even delivering ice. emphasized by virtue that the 84-page issue was kept in the family all these years.

The experience of COVID has changed the outlook for cold storage as an asset class, making it an attractive long-term investment that’s likely to ensure security in the food supply for years to come.

s t f i h S D I V O C h t wi By Lisa Brown

“Though cold storage is far from top of mind for most people, it is a vital component of our food supply chain.” Alex Langerman

In March, the Department of Homeland Security classified cold storage facilities and employees as essential infrastructure, keeping them open and operating through the peak of the pandemic. Ultimately, the frontline workers in this sector prevented widespread food shortages across the country. “Though cold storage is far from top of mind for most people, it is a vital component of our food supply chain,” says Alex Langerman, COO of Cold Summit Development. As states begin to reopen, consumer food shopping habits are highly unlikely to return to pre-pandemic style shopping. E-commerce grocery shopping will continue growing and will most certainly include more perishable items as fresh/ frozen produce and protein move from farmer to processor, wholesaler to distributor and direct to consumer. In fact, a recent survey found that 46% of respondents will continue to purchase goods online even after the COVID-19 pandemic subsides, according to LandVision. And, CBRE estimates that an additional 75 million to 100 million square feet in freezer/cooler space will be needed to meet changing consumer

habits. This growth of e-commerce means industrial brokers and investors looking to capitalize on this trend need a fast, efficient way to identify promising opportunities. The experience of COVID has changed the outlook for cold storage as an asset class, making it an attractive long-term investment that’s likely to ensure security in the food supply for years to come. “We were seeing this investor interest and which trends are being turned on their heads,” Scott Pertel, Cold Summit CEO, tells GlobeSt. com. “And we have the data to back it up for the direct-to-consumer produce delivery models leading to increased cold storage facilities.” This future demand is augmented by three key trends emerging from the pandemic: increasing inventory levels, shifting global food flows and automation. These trends, reinforcing previously existing growth drivers, are serving as a catalyst for the cold storage sector as it advances from a niche investment subsector to a core infrastructure asset class, says Cold Summit. Moreover, the outlook for many real estate sectors are being muddled by the impacts of COVID. Retail properties are facing an acute demand shock resulting in a wave of bankruptcy filings by tenants and mortgage defaults by property owners, compounding the secular decline of brick-and-mortar stores. Office and hospitality are similarly challenged by short-term freezes on in-office work and travel with REFRIGERATION Magazine │ October 2020 9


uncertainty around the timing and shape of a recovery. Multifamily and conventional industrial are faring better, though the impact of a potential recession weighs heavily. Cold storage has historically proven resilient in times of recession: in 2009, with revenues for the thirdparty logistics/3PL sector down nearly 7% in aggregate, food & beverage/F&B 3PL revenues fell by just one-tenth of 1%, according to Cold Summit. Furthermore, through the past two recessions, F&B was the third-best performing retail sector, experiencing a 3.7% month-over-month growth rate against a decline of 6.1% for total retail sales. F&B sales have performed exceptionally through the COVID crisis with 25.6% growth for March 2020, compared to an 8.7%

decline for retail as a whole. Cold storage has consistently performed during times of economic distress, in line with expectations for an infrastructure asset class. “Beyond sector performance figures, the COVID experience has brought into clear focus the need for resilient food supply chains in the face of pandemic risk,” says Langerman. “Through the COVID experience, cold storage has been shown to be more critical than most previously appreciated, and the sector will be profoundly shaped by trends emerging from the pandemic. The reversal of just-in-time inventories to more resilient supply chains requires a behavioral change by many uncoordinated actors in the economy and is thus the most precarious trend of those discussed. The duration of the COVID experience and the severity of its impacts will determine its stickiness.”

On the other side, the shifts in global food flows which have been underway for the past two decades will be reinforced, further driving demand for cold storage capacity. Likewise, increasing adoption of automation in the warehouse was driven by economic and operational efficiencies prior to COVID, with the realities of the post-COVID setting serving only to accelerate the shift. “Cold storage has emerged as the most dynamic component of the real estate and infrastructure asset class,” says Langerman. “If the 2008 financial crisis and Great Recession saw the arrival of the industry as an established investment sector, the COVID crisis and the resulting drive for resilient food supply chains is proving to be the inflection point for accelerated growth and rapidly ramping demand. In the dark of the COVID experience, cold storage is shining bright.” RM

How to Make Converts Out of Gas-Only Customers By Tammy Mastroberte, Convenience Store News

Every convenience store has them — customers who stop for fuel, yet never make it from the pump to the store. The challenge is to grab a customer’s attention at the pump and give them a compelling reason to go inside. In today’s world, though, consumers are bombarded with marketing and messages, and are usually looking down and absorbed in their mobile phones. “It’s about breaking through the clutter with something that is relevant and valued,” said Kevin Struthers, digital commerce lead at W. Capra Consulting, a Chicago-based company focused on retail technology. “We are becoming blind to signage, with our nose in our phones, so retailers have to do something to grab that attention and hopefully get them into a digital channel so that you can track them and message them.” Research shows that when a customer is paying for their fuel, that is an ideal time to let them know what other problems the c-store can solve, or needs it can fill, according to Eric Sherman, senior vice president of insights and analytics at Detroitbased GSTV, which provides retailers with audio and video capabilities at the pump. Research conducted by GSTV and MasterCard found that immediately following a fuel transaction, people spend three times more money across a number of different categories. “People don’t just go get gas and then go home,” Sherman noted. “They get gas and then go do something else, so there is an opportunity to get their attention whether they have never been in the store or have not visited in a while. It’s about speaking to the

customer with something relevant and saying it in a compelling way that also meets one of their needs.” ENGAGING AT THE PUMP One way to grab attention at the pump is to utilize audio and video. “It’s about creating the right hook to get them to come in,” said Michael Sansolo, research director for the Coca-Cola Retailing Research Council (CCRRC). CCRRC’s 2019 Embracing Modern Convenience Report examined shopper needs and where they tend to go to meet those needs. The convenience channel is often filling the needs of hunger, thirst, and the desire for delight, according to the study’s findings. “You have to highlight and talk up the items inside the store and let customers know they are changing for the better, and also solving their problem,” said Sansolo. GSTV supplies both audio and video at more than 22,000 locations throughout the country — independents and large chains. GSTV offers news and other programming, works with vendors to promote products available in-store, and partners with c-store operators who want to promote their own proprietary products. The advertising can be segmented by region, individual store, daypart and more.

RUNNING HEAD “Bringing new customers in is about driving awareness of products and services not necessarily associated with c-stores; that go out of the norm of carbonated beverages, candy bars and a bag of chips,” explained Dan Trotzer, executive vice of industry at GSTV. “Advertise fresh food or healthier options that would go beyond the standard CPG packaged program.” However, that doesn’t mean offering a deal on soda or candy won’t drive customers into the store. GSTV has worked with a beer brand whose video and audio advertising produced a 3 percent lift in sales, a soda brand that saw a 7 percent lift, and executed a program for lottery purchases that resulted in a 31 percent lift. Communicating in a compelling way is crucial. In fact, the Advertising Research Foundation reports that 70 percent of an ad’s effectiveness is related to the creative alone. “Sometimes, you don’t need an offer, you just need a delicious-looking sandwich,” Sherman shared. “The best creative displays the product very clearly in a way that makes it look enticing and tells you where you can get it. On a hot day, a big, cold, delicious-looking can of soda or, at lunch time, a video of a hamburger or hot dog tends to work well.” Struthers of W. Capra Consulting recommends highlighting something that makes the store or chain different, or something that the brand is known for. “Know the value proposition for your store and use it,” he advised. Sansolo of CCRRC also suggests that retailers think outside the box when it comes to engaging customers at the pump. “Look at what other retailers are doing with aromas as a sales tool. If you are roasting chicken, vent this out to where people are pumping gas. And the same with baking. You can employ all the senses,” he said. RM REFRIGERATION Magazine │ October 2020 15


IN MEMORIAM

Remembering

Charles Edward (Ted) Beverly Ted’s first job was as a geophysicist in Alaska where he and his wife Pat, spent three years in Sitka. Returning home, Ted joined his parents, Charles and Margaret Beverley, in the family commercial refrigeration business. At Ted’s suggestion, the business expanded into the Beverley Ice Company, and within a few years, it became the largest ice distributor in the Washington area.

K

nown to his family and friends as Ted, died on September 21, 2020 of complications from Alzheimer’s disease. He was 77. Ted was a Washington area native, but he spent a lifetime making friends wherever he went. At school, at work, and throughout his many travels, interests and adventures, he engaged with people.

16 REFRIGERATION Magazine │ October 2020

Ted was president of the MidAtlantic Ice Association (now part of the Northeastern Ice Association), Chairman of the IPIA in 1987, and inducted into the IPIA’s Hall of Fame 1997. He spent over 24 years there until his second retirement in 1994. During this time, Ted and Pat adopted their children: Sarah, and three years later, Thomas. They moved to the Kenwood section of Chevy Chase, and Ted became active

in the Kenwood Citizens Association, serving a term as its president. In 1994, Ted embarked on his third career as a real estate agent with Evers & Co. He continued with his successful real estate career until Alzheimer’s forced his final retirement in 2013. Ted is survived by his wife of 55 years, Pat; their daughter Sarah Larkin (Jim) of Frisco, TX; their son Thomas Beverly (Ginny) of Boyds, MD. He is also survived by his sister, Christine Shanholtzer (Philip) of Poolesville, MD who also worked in the Beverly Ice business for many years. In addition to his family, a host of friends will miss him dearly. Burial will be private. A celebration of life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Ted’s honor to the Alzheimer’s Association. RM
