Yeah, this is HVAC talk. But it's not fireplace talk or political talk either. There are many here that are cross trained in commercial food service equipment.
Would an Appliance/Cooking Equipment forum work here? Maybe one called Food Service Equipment?? If so, it should be a Pro only forum due to its content.
The idea was tossed around a while back. What is your opinion?

I work on commercial gas equip. once in a while. I doubt I'd use it much, but some may.My doctor gave me six months to live, but when I couldn't pay the bill he gave me six months more.

In any given town, the refrigeration people seem to inherit the entire kitchen.
I spent more than a few days servicing commercial cooking equipment.
There wasn't much competition, and a billable hour is a billable hour.
By doing it all, I kept my customers happy.
A happy customer doesn't stray.
You may not get much traffic, but my vote would be yes.

We've got an entire division just for food service where I work.
I think it'd be an excellent idea.

I would have to agree. I have a site I use alot. It has tech sheets, wiring diagrams, installation refrences and alot more. All you have to do is type in the model number. I hate it when I go to a customers house and the papers are gone.

I hate the fact the two disciplines can be combined. I hate it big time.
But. Reality is. There aint no shame in it. Put it on the formun. I might want to learn something.

Its hard to specialize in this business, I too have to work on some unusual stuff sometimes.
I've ran into some interesting stuff over the years.
Once I was asked to work on a hotdog roller.
A commercial dishwasher or two, conveyer belts, laundry equip, ovens, so yeah, I think it would be an excellent category to add.All my leon freaked out!

Well, this is good
I expected to get the old "No Way"

Any one else?

I say yes, but then keeping the h.o. away so they dont burn the joint down. I like the idea, I start a new job Monday the 9th as Cheif Engineer at a very large hotel. I am in charge of the whole operation and finally get to put my skills to work. This would be a great starting point for anyone like myself who may be looking for something or have a tech issue with. My vote is yes.
