Countertop, Self-Serve Merchandisers
Countertop, self-service hot holding merchandisers are simple enough, but they're also one of the hottest equipment categories in foodservice right now. The reason: These cabinets align with a number of megatrends—including increased snacking, the rise of grab-and-go formats for speedy customer throughput, and more recently, the boom in takeaway and delivery. Operators are placing these merchandisers front and center in school cafeterias and college dining halls, micromarts, convenience stores and other on-site foodservice locations to boost impulse sales of everything from hot sandwiches to burritos to personal pizzas.
