A non-profit café had barely opened their doors to serve the community when they narrowly avoided disaster. Twice.
Hugs Café, located in McKinney, TX, provides foodservice training and employment to adults with developmental and intellectual disabilities.
Just a few weeks after opening, the café was afflicted by a common occurrence in the foodservice industry – a malfunctioning refrigerator. After losing all the food contained in that unit, the owner contacted SenSource Wireless and installed wireless temperature sensors for all their refrigerators and freezers. The wireless sensors monitor and alert staff when temperatures fall below desired levels, protecting their food and their financial investment.
As it turns out, the original refrigerator malfunction was merely a gentle nudge to the non-profit; inspiring the installation of wireless temperature sensors to prevent a more devastating loss. Just four weeks later, the café lost ALL power to the location (also not uncommon). Had it not been for the wireless sensors, they would have lost their entire inventory of food. Instead, staff was alerted to the power outage and disaster was avoided.
Hugs Café is the dream of Founder and President Ruth Thompson. Her vision is to create a non-profit café that will be run and operated primarily by Special Needs Adults. They combine a unique mix of their own recipes with donated recipes of celebrity chefs from across the great state of Texas.
