Reach-In Coolers, what are they?

A reach-in refrigerator/freezer is a great way to keep your items cold. Even better if you are a store owner that sells chilled products. It makes the products accessible to customers at arm’s length while standing. It also allows you to create rows of them for your customers to walk past. It is the most commonly used type of commercial refrigerator available today. They vary in sizes from 26” to 87” wide. They can also be equipped with any accessories you can think of.

The cherry on top is that most reach-in coolers have glass doors. The glass door option allows your customers to scope out products they weren’t planning on buying and making impulse purchases.
