Benefits of Owning an Ice Machine for your Business

Does your business use ice daily?  Have you considered purchasing an ice machine instead of buying bagged ice?  Here are some of the benefits an ice machine can bring you . . . 

Used throughout many business sectors, commercial ice machines produce reliable, consistent and appealing results.  Learn of the business benefits and how you can get up to 80% off your next ice machine.

Are you expanding your canteen so your customers can self-serve ice or do you need better quality ice to add value to high-end cocktails?  Perhaps you want to keep organic items chilled in the medical sector or your chef wants ice to blanch vegetables?  Having an ice machine can provide a practical solution that can fulfil the ice requirements of your business.

There are several benefits to owning an ice machine:

  • Convenience – When all ice is produced on-site it provides a consistent supply 24 hours a day.
  • No Wastage - Leftover ice can be bagged and stored for busier periods.
  • Economical - If ice is continuously required for your business, it may be more economically effective in the long term to purchase an ice machine outright in comparison to purchasing bagged ice, especially if ice is used daily.
  • Fixed Asset - With full ownership of an ice machine you have a tangible asset for your business, which can be depreciated over time!

So, how do you choose the ideal ice machine for your business?  You need to consider many factors, including efficiency, affordability, as well as the style and amount of ice you need.
