SmartBar was founded in 2009 by Adam Rozen, a long-time innovator and entrepreneur who has been involved with the Hospitality Industry for a decade. Seeing a need for an upgrade in traditional catering and banquet furniture, Rozen joined forces with premium furniture manufacturers and in consultation with Food and Beverage Managers and designers to create SmartBar Products. SmartBar Products continues to innovate and provide cutting-edge, practical, branded furniture.
