Tipton Equipment Restaurant Supply carries all the convenience store supplies you need to keep your store stocked with cold beverages, hot foods, and fresh treats! Whether your customers are just stopping in for a road trip snack or they’re making an impulsive frozen beverage purchase while shopping, we have the equipment to make sure they’re happy with the goods and you’re happy with the price! Our selection of convenience store equipment ranges from small wares to display cases to large refrigeration systems.

 

We know that every convenience store has it’s own layout and needs, but generally, they offer similar services to their customers – a variety of beverages, prepared fast food items, household products, bagged ice, lottery tickets, and gasoline. Many of the foods and drinks require refrigeration or freezing.

Refrigeration Systems for Convenience Stores

Convenience store fridges and freezers are opened and closed by customers all day long, which means you need a refrigeration system that’s able to keep up and keep your food and beverages cold! 

If you need a new refrigeration system for your convenience store, contact Tipton Equipment – we’ll send a refrigeration system specialist to your store to take a look and make a recommendation for maximum profitability based on your store’s layout and foot traffic. 

Over the many years that we’ve been in business, we’ve developed excellent relationships with the best cooling equipment manufacturers in the business. Those relationships allow us to buy at excellent prices, and then pass those savings on to you! If you’re just getting started, or you’re on a tight budget, we also offer used options for most of our equipment. Our stock changes daily, so contact us and we’ll walk you through your options. 

Display Cases

We offer a large selection of refrigerated display cases for convenience stores. Display and chill your produce, fruits, deli, salads, sandwiches, dairy, ice cream, beverages, beer, and wine. 

Walk-In Coolers and Walk-In Freezers

We also offer walk-in coolers and freezers to store your excess stock safely and sanitarily. Or you can get creative and delight your customers with walk-in coolers for beer and produce!

Reach-In Coolers and Reach-In Freezers

We offer the best deals in Central Arkansas when it comes to reach-in coolers and freezers for convenience stores. Keep popsicles and ice cream treats where people can see and be tempted by them on hot summer days. Or keep frozen dinners next to the microwave so people can have tasty, hot meals on the go!

Prep Tables

If you serve fresh food at your convenience store, you may need a prep table to prepare your food for your customers. We have prep tables of all sizes and at all price points. Need a refrigerated table for deli sandwiches or a warmer table for hot-dogs and other hot food? We’ve got you covered!

Merchandisers 

Maximize your store’s floor space with merchandisers of all shapes and sizes! Separate organic and healthy snacks and place them in a prominent area to emphasize them and encourage people to buy. Or create a selection of your most popular beverages for customer convenience! 

Ice Machines for Convenience Stores

No refreshing drink is complete without ice! Ice turns a regular glass of lemonade or soda into an absolute treat. Make sure you’re keeping your customers happy with the perfect ice machine for your convenience store. 

Before you spend a big chunk of change on an ice-maker evaluate what kind of ice machine you’re looking for based on your business’s needs and customer base. 

Cubed Ice

This is the most popular choice for ice. It’s great for cold beverages and melts more slowly, so it keeps the drink from tasting watered down for longer than the other to types of ice. 

Nugget Ice

Nugget ice (sometimes referred to as “Sonic Ice” for the popular fast-food restaurant that popularized it) is softer and easier to chew and it adds a distinct texture to your beverages. This is a popular choice with customers, and because of its volume, it saves you money on beverages by stretching out the syrups for longer. 

Flake Ice

Flake ice is exactly what it sounds like – little flakes of ice. These are perfect for packing meat and groceries, and it looks fantastic in freezer displays – almost like snow. Because it melts almost instantly when it comes into contact with liquid, we don’t recommend it for your store’s beverages. 

Once you decide on what type of ice you want, think about the placement of your ice maker. Do you want it on the counter, under the counter, or a larger, stand-alone option for the back room? You also have options as far is compressor type is concerned:

  • Air-cooled
  • Water-cooled
  • Remote-cooled

Make sure to think about your space, temperature, and ventilation needs when making your decision. No matter which option you choose, also be sure to consider thing like:

  • Water drains
  • Water supply
  • Power supply
  • Space available

Your city may have certain codes for any or all of these considerations, so make sure you check on those before making the big purchase!

The most important thing to remember is that even though the prices can seem overwhelming, ice machines are a necessary investment when you’re trying to make your convenience store a success. Have one of our ice machine specialists come to your store for a free consultation – we’ll take everything into account and give you our recommendation on which equipment will best serve your space and your customers.
