Catering equipment manufacturer Hubbard Systems is offering operators no-obligation site surveys to help decide which kind of ice machine best suits their needs.
Recent years have seen a proliferation of the types of ice available, with each having specific applications. With such a wide variety of machines and different applications for ice, Hubbard is offering to help specifiers that are finding it difficult to judge which machine to choose for a site’s specific needs.
The survey involves an expert visiting the venue to assess which machine is best suited to the site. The assessment will also take into account environmental factors, such as available space and plumbing restrictions.
Hubbard Systems has been the UK distributor of Scotsman ice machines for over 50 years and insists it is vital for operators to establish which types of ice are most suitable for their businesses.
It notes, for example, that the gourmet supercube is a pure and slow-melting ice ideal for classic on-the-rocks drinks, while places with high peaks in demand may find dice cubes more suitable.
Flake ice has a wide range of applications, from cocktails to food display, according to Hubbard, which adds that nugget ice is increasingly popular in the US and making in-roads here, too.
