Regardless of the type of foodservice business you own, reach-in refrigerators and freezers are essential to your operation. Any commercial kitchen needs the ability to store and preserve foods and ingredients to prevent spoilage and food waste and to be able to serve fresh, great-tasting meals that your customers will come back for.
Commercial reach-in freezers and refrigerators designed to serve a multitude of purposes – displaying food and beverage products for sale, and easily storing products that are used on a daily basis for preparation in the kitchen. They ensure that food is kept at the proper temperature for as long as possible and come in thousands of unique styles to suit your commercial kitchen.
Reach-in refrigerators and freezers are available with glass doors or solid doors. Each door type affords a unique set of advantages. Glass door units give you the added ability to merchandise your products while the solid doors completely conceal them.
Commercial refrigerators with transparent display cases are perfect for placement on the floor for showcase purposes. And since they allow both employees and customers to easily identify what’s inside, you get to deliver a speedier service.
Commercial full-size reach-in refrigerators with stainless steel doors will be a great addition to any efficient commercial kitchen. They are specifically designed to keep the cold air in for longer, which can reduce your energy bill. High-tech door liners and gaskets which some models have, help to prevent cold air from seeping out.
Our commercial reach-in refrigerators and freezers can support all sizes of foodservice operations. We have units with one, two, or three compartments that feature several adjustable shelves so you can organize the space and maximize it according to your specific needs.
The compressor location is another important consideration when shopping for a reach-in in order to get the ideal style for your environment. We have top-mounted units that will serve well in a busy kitchen and a bottom-mounted unit that provides easy access to the bottom shelves.
Other styles may have useful features built-in, such as easy-to-clean gaskets, microprocessor controls, and adjustable shelves. From our large range of reach-in freezers, you can choose six, four, three, two or single-door freezers, depending on the size and needs of your kitchen. To offer the best match for your particular air temperature conditions, we have various top and bottom-mounted compressor units.
And if your kitchen space is limited, check out our reach-in dual temps that combine the functionalities of refrigerators and freezers into a single convenient package.

We also have glass door merchandisers, roll-in freezers, stacked freezers and side-by-side freezers that let you totally customize your kitchen configuration.

“Well, If I have a walk-in cooler, do I really need to have a reach-in and work top refrigerators?”
This question comes up often when I discuss the layout and design of a client’s kitchen. The answer is that it depends.
The kitchen size will make a difference; If the available space is somewhat small and can’t support both reach-ins and a walk-in, then even a small walk-in would yield better cu ft of storage.
For instance, a 6ftX7ft walk-in would be equivalent to having two two-section and one single-section refrigerators. A walk-in will have one compressor; the reach-ins would require three. However, if space allows for reach-ins and worktop refrigeration, then we don’t want to busy up the kitchen with staffers all heading to the one refrigerated walk-in available, or running up and down to the cellar when they need refrigerated ingredients.
