Commercial Coolers for Any Application

Maintaining safe and appealing temperatures for food and beverages is a must for businesses ranging from restaurants and cafes, to bakeries, delis, cafeterias, bars and entertainment venues. For some businesses, coolers are largely a back-of-the house tool, used for storing and prepping food. But for others, coolers need to do more than just maintain appropriate temperatures. They must also display products in ways that are both appealing and easily accessible.

To meet the varied needs of this wide variety of businesses, commercial coolers are available in several designs. Knowing the options available and what features to look for can help you to make the right choice for your specific refrigeration needs.

Size is one significant consideration when selecting the right type of cooler for your establishment. At the top end of the size spectrum, you find walk-in coolers. These are essentially specially designed, room-sized refrigeration units that allow for bulk storage of a variety of foods and beverages. Both indoor and outdoor options are available. These coolers are designed to hold foods at low temperatures but are not intended to be opened frequently and should generally be used in conjunction with some type of reach-in cooler.

Reach-in coolers come in one, two and three section varieties and are designed to both bring food temps down quickly and to support regular door-opening without compromising food safety due to temperature fluctuations. Storage needs and space considerations will drive the selection of what reach-in cooler makes sense for your business.

Undercounter and work-top coolers provide easily accessible refrigerated storage for use in food prep areas. Many are available with top side storage and workspaces specially designed to accommodate the preparation of foods like pizza, sandwiches, and salads. Back bar coolers are similar to other undercounter refrigeration units, but the interiors are specially sized to accommodate bottles and cans, while also allowing for good visibility of what is being stored, making it easy for a busy bartender to find what is needed even when things get busy.

Display and merchandising coolers are available to fit in virtually any environment. Open-air coolers display grab-and go food on shelves that customers can easily access, making them a great choice for convenience and impulse-buy items. Glass door coolers are ideal for beverage displays and allow customers to see the full array of drink options. When considering your options for glass door coolers, be sure to review our overall space and planned arrangement to determine whether swing doors or sliding doors make sense for your location. Drop-in and countertop coolers provide additional display and merchandising options for locations where space may be limited.

High-quality commercial coolers from recognized brands can provide years of reliable service. Recommended brands include Avantco, Beverage-Air, Continental Refrigerator, Delfield, Duke, Hoshizaki, Kolpak, Leader, Nor-Lake, Perlick, Traulsen, True, Turbo Air.
