Baby boomer technicians, age 57-75, have already begun to retire creating even more of a need in a field where young people may have not been interested in the past in using their hands or being mechanically inclined.
According to Kirby Mallon, the Owner and President of Elmer Schultz Services, a third-generation, family owned business, and President of the Commercial Food Equipment Service Association (CFESA), the pandemic has shifted this thinking with young people, finding less value in college, actually gravitating to satisfying work as technicians. Not only do they get immediate gratification when they can solve a problem and become heroes to a restaurant they get up and running again, but an experienced food equipment technician can have a salary well over six figures.
