When Crafthouse USA CEO and founder Evan Matz moved from Florida to Virginia several years ago, he realized that the sunny, tropical weather had not followed him there. In the winter, at some of his first restaurants, he noticed an issue with the entry. At one property, as customers entered through a pair of swinging doors, the cold winter air rushed inside and everyone in the dining room wanted to be far away from the entrance. At another location, he had a vestibule with two swinging doors; this better controlled the influx of cold air but took up a lot of expensive, interior space. Matz decided back then that he needed a different entrance solution for his restaurants – a revolving door.
Coming from a generation of Schonzeits who specialize in ID badging and security, I have seen the industry go through many changes over the years. Security is part of my DNA and I’m excited to share my knowledge with the marketplace and help create a safer world. In 1943, my grandfather Hyman Schonzeit founded Identification Service Corp. in the heart of New York City as a manufacturer of laminated credentials and safety tags. With its own design staff, printing presses, and lamination equipment he quickly grew the business by winning large corporate and governmental contracts that included providing the War Department with ID cards. Now, Idesco has become a leader in ID badging solutions.
