Merchandiser refrigerators, which are sometimes called display refrigerators, are a food storage solution for foodservice establishments like a convenience store looking to showcase their products and improve their impulse sales.
These commercial refrigerators come in a wide variety of configurations and capacities. Glass door refrigeration equipment is typically what you want for display and convenience.
You can also opt for air curtain merchandisers that remove the barrier for easy, less cumbersome access to products. This type of equipment is perfect for most grab-and-go foods like prepackaged meals and bottled beverages. However, this is meant to store and preserve cold products instead of bringing down the temperatures.
Glass door coolers will be the ideal choice for cooling products, but also maintaining a sanitary operation. With a glass door merchandiser, the contents are protected from outside elements and they give you better leeway as far as temperature management and placement go.
Merchandiser refrigerators can have up to five (5) sections to support all scales of operation. They come with wire shelves with a lipped edge to keep products from falling off. Since they are also adjustable, you can maximize the space and for example, stack up canned beverages on a single shelf.
There are also countertop styles for those looking to display a small number of foods. These units will be great for showing off your bestsellers or encouraging last-minute purchase from a customer at the counter.
Merchandiser refrigerators may have a top-mount or a bottom-mount compressor. You will find many units that are designed to meet Energy Star standards, which means they have reduced energy consumption and environmental impact. To add to the presentation, there are units with backlit graphic panels. The exteriors are painted black or white to suit your decor.
