Beverage Display Coolers Work for Both in Front and Behind the Counter at Quick-Service Restaurants

Beverage display coolers and refrigerators have a variety of uses, but for quick service restaurants, they are an excellent way to clearly showcase the beverages and specialty items that are available for patrons. Self-serve sliding glass door refrigerators work well at quick-service restaurants, and models with open-air designs are a great option. Open-air coolers use air curtains to keep contents chilled, which lowers the amount of touchpoints and allows customers to access grab-and-go items without having to open a door.

There’s No Need for a Beverage Menu If Drinks are on Display

Menus are often overlooked in quick-service restaurants and bars, and it is generally best to keep it simple. Rather than listing beverages on a menu, display them! Save time, money, and valuable real estate on your menu by providing an easy-to-see beverage display cooler with all the beverage options available. Without a beverage menu, this additionally leaves the option for add-ons purchases, impulse buys, and upgrades within an attractive display leaving the customer happy and exempt from sticker shock.

Bars Typically Display Liquor Bottles Behind the Bar – Why not Display the Bottled Beer Selection?

Bars in high-end establishments always display their top-shelf liquors for patrons to see. But what about the beer selection? Beverage display coolers allow bars to display the craft beer bottles and cans available for purchase as well. Sliding glass door refrigerators work well in the tight spaces behind bars to display the beer selection for patrons, without extending beyond its footprint. LED lighting can be added to sliding glass door coolers to increase visibility.
