Ice is a cooling element that can be added to drinks. Isn’t it wonderful how this little element can cool you down by chilling your drink first? It is understandable why bars and restaurants rely greatly on there being enough ice for their customers.
There are different ways that a bar or restaurant can ensure that they have ice but the most efficient way is to have an ice maker. Back in the day people used to make their own ice by filling up cube trays and placing them in the freezer overnight. This did take a lot of time and a ton of cube trays so it wasn’t an efficient solution. With the increasing demand for ice bar owners found themselves running out of ice and having to buy ice. A more effective solution was created by means of the ice maker. An ice maker is a machine that makes loads of ice within a short space of time.
Ice makers such as the Scotsman Ice Machines can freeze the water into perfect cubes. It can produce kilograms of cubes on a daily basis and it can store them in a storage bin to keep them chilled until it is ready to be added to the next drink. For bars that only serve drinks it is imperative that there is sufficient ice on hand that is ready to serve. The last thing you want is to run out of ice before the night is over. It could end your bar’s night before closing time. Every bar aims to sell as many drinks as possible on any given night, and many drinks require these cubes. When a customer wants a drink on the rocks and you tell them that there is no ice, what do you think they will do? They will be very disappointed and upset. They may leave the bar and go to another bar that has what they want.
Be ready for the demand that a busy night will bring and make sure that your Scotsman Ice Machine is set up and ready to produce buckets of cubes. You will impress your customer with a beautifully displayed drink that contains perfect cubes to keep it chilled. You may think that people don’t notice it, but you’ll be surprised as to how many people actually pay attention to the finer details in life. Those are the ones that appreciate it when other people go the extra mile for their pleasure. And those are the people that are loyal in life. Those are the customers that will be your repeat customers and will frequent your establishment.
It may seem like ice is an insignificant element but when you have a bar or a restaurant it is the little things that you should not underestimate. It could be the little things that add value to your customer service and food or drink establishment. You could stand out of the crowd by offering customers the finer details in life that the other bars or restaurants don’t offer.
