What is the best ice machine for bars and restaurants?
In choosing the best commercial ice maker, discover why the best solution is ice machine subscriptions.
In the above video I’ll discuss why commercial ice machine ownership is quickly becoming a thing of the past.
BEST BAR SERVICES – HOW TO CHOOSE THE BEST COMMERCIAL ICE MAKER
No surprise here, but results from a recent industry survey among foodservice managers revealed that ice machines have replaced dishwashers as the most frustrating piece of kitchen equipment. In fact, 57.1 percent of participants stated that ice machines cause the greatest problems for their facility, far surpassing the 3.9 percent who listed the dishwasher. Five years ago dishwashers were at the top of the list, but service providers such as Ecolab and Auto-Chlor have changed how dishwashing equipment is provided, maintained and repaired. A new business model was born.
The above-mentioned survey also revealed the following:
- More than half responded that machine repairs average 2-7 days.
- 80% of participants stated that they spent up to $400 per repair.
- Responders overwhelmingly prefer Hoshizaki ice machines.
With commercial ice machines being so problematic and costly, why would anyone want to own one? A new company, known as Easy Ice, has the answer.
Recognizing the need for a large-scale, reliable solution for the the hospitality sector, Easy Ice innovated the concept of ice machine subscriptions. Easy Ice is the first and only national provider of ice machine subscriptions, supplying ice machines for hotels, restaurants and bars in 43 states. Through its 24 x 365 call center, Easy Ice customers are serviced in real time. Through a partnership with Reddy Ice, the largest packaged ice supplier in North America, Easy Ice is able to provide experienced service technicians and emergency ice within 3-6 hours.
WHAT ARE ICE MACHINE SUBSCRIPTIONS?
Easy Ice recognized that ownership of commercial ice machines is a losing proposition, especially considering the ongoing headaches of repairing, maintaining and cleaning. Understanding that safe and reliable ice production is the end-goal of every commercial ice machine owner, Easy Ice developed the ice machine subscription as the hassle-free method of delivering it. With an Easy Ice subscription, every customer receives a Hoshizaki commercial ice machine – the best in the industry – and Easy Ice assumes the risk and expense!
