Self Serve Display Cases: Less Labor, More Profits
A self-serve display case is an excellent piece of equipment to add to the front-of-house. These display cases are designed to store and display your offerings in a way that is not just presentable, but also easy to access so that no staff has to be stationed to serve the products to customers. This means that your customers are able to make their pick, grab it, and then go to the checkout counter. They are rear-loading, which means products are placed from behind the display cases, where there are typically sliding doors for easy opening and closing.
Self-serve display cases can provide tons of value and flexibility to a bakery, convenience store, cafe, grocery store, and many other food service establishments that provide grab-and-go solutions or simply boosting their sales by showcasing products. There are non-refrigerated and refrigerated display cases, with the latter offering the benefit of refrigeration and temperature control to ensure that the products are stored in safe temperatures to keep their taste and quality. Refrigerated display cases are designed specifically to keep products like beverages, precooked or prepared meals, cakes, and many more fresh and chilled.
Depending on the type of products you plan to display as well as the layout of your front house, you can get an upright self-serve display case or a vertical self-serve display case. The upright display cases have more shelves, take less floor space, and provide a lot of vertical space for your products. These units can have a glass door or not at all, and will instead have an air curtain that cools the products without creating a physical barrier between patrons and the products. These self-service display cases are perfect for prepackaged items and offerings like cake and ice cream. You can even get island-style units that enhance the presentation of the products and give you more freedom in terms of its placement since they don't have to be placed flush against the wall.
Vertical units keep everything visible and easy to reach so customers can get a good look at everything on offer. They usually have a curved front for added sleekness and come with one or two tiers only but the shelves are longer in width to provide more space to spread out a large number of products at a time. Bakery display cases come in both non-refrigerated and refrigerated versions. Also ideal for use in cafes, non-refrigerated units typically hold bottled or canned drinks and packaged baked goods, which is why they are referred to as pastry display cases sometimes.
