What our partners are saying about Empire Cooler.
A custom solution
We are always ready with ice-making solutions. When Ford needed to ensure melt water from heavy ice dispenser use was not creating a health and safety hazard, we did what we always do, we listened. We learned about their challenges, and our experts devised a solution. We delivered by making custom changes to equipment and mounting stands and giving them the peace of mind they needed.
Filling water coolers, water bottles and lunch coolers is a fairly straightforward task for our ice experts. The challenge was that AT&T needed them to be filled hands free to meet new COVID-19 protocols. And they needed it all for just 6 months a year. Our resourceful crew researched options, customized equipment to meet our partner’s needs, and created an alternative seasonal invoicing plan so AT&T only paid for the equipment when it was in use. Challenge resolved.
Handling the logistics
A big event requires special planning. And this special summer event in Chicago was full of vendors and merchandisers requiring extra-special planning. The equipment needed to be delivered at midnight, with daily monitoring and coordination of ice levels as crowd size fluctuated. Our experts designed a unique way to accommodate their needs and keep the ice going. We coordinated complex drops offs and pick-ups, and ensured equipment and ice were ready when and where they needed it. And at the end of the event, there was virtually no waste.
