“Keeping your cool” isn’t too easy for restaurateurs these days, given COVID, supply chain interruptions, labor difficulties and business and consumer-challenging inflation.
But in foodservice it is imperative that kitchen and bar operations stay ‘chill’ year round and that means it is important to consider a great number of factors beyond price when selecting the latest generation ice and refrigeration equipment needed to maintain food quality and safety, reduce waste and produce the cubes, flakes or crush that can make cold beverage offerings irresistible.
