For our customers in grocery stores, restaurants, hotels, convenience stores, and commercial kitchens, reach-in and display cases can quite often take a beating from customers and employees regularly opening them up to get products and restock merchandise. This can create a lot of stress on the compressors leading them to break down more easily. When your display and reach-in cases break down, it’s essential to get them back up and running quickly to avoid potential product loss. Tri-Point has worked with both large restaurant chains down to smaller convenience stores to get their reach-in and display cases repaired and back up and running.

Commercial Ice Maker Leasing, Service, & Sales

Commercial ice makers take a lot of abuse. It’s essential to work with a company that can keep your equipment cleaned and maintained and running. Tri-Point has experience working with a variety of businesses to keep their equipment operational and in great working order.

What Is The Best Brand Commercial Ice Maker?

There are quite a few different manufacturers of commercial ice machines and selecting the best can sometimes be a hassle for our partner customers. One of the advantages of working with an experienced company like Tri-Point is the technicians understand the best brands after years of testing and experience. Tri-Point has worked with companies as large as Amazon to manage their break room ice machines down to smaller restaurants and hotels. Some of the best brand ice makers that previous customers have preferred include:


Hoshizaki  •  Koolaire  •  Ice-O-Matic  •  Scotsman  •  Follet  •  Manitowoc


While Tri-Point technicians are capable of servicing all brands of commercial ice machines, these are the most common companies recommended for reliability and performance. Hoshizaki, Manitowoc, and Koolaire standing out among the best of the best.

Commercial Ice Machine Cleaning

Regular cleaning is essential regardless if you have a lightly used break room ice machine or a large hotel going through hundreds of pounds of ice each day. An improperly cleaned ice machine can lead to mold growth and other issues that potentially can cause the people using it to become ill. Other issues with an ice machine that isn’t regularly cleaned include mineral buildup that can damage and eventually break your machine, leading to the need for an expensive replacement. This can be avoided by working with a reputable company like Tri-Point that will create a regular maintenance schedule appropriate for your specific ice machine and the level of wear and tear that it receives.

Commercial Ice Machine Maintenance

Aside from just cleaning, your commercial ice machine will also need regular maintenance to replace heavy use parts such as the water filter. This helps to keep your machine running and can decrease the chance of parts breaking and the need for expensive repairs. Tri-Point technicians are capable of servicing almost all brands of commercial ice machines including in offices, restaurants, hotels, and even in residential buildings or homes. Your technician will help you to understand what needs to be done in terms of maintenance to keep your machine running correctly and to help you get the full lifetime value from your ice machine. Some of the more popular brands of commercial under-counter ice machines include Scotsman, Manitowoc Ice, and Hoshizaki. These commercial ice machines can usually range in price between one and four thousand dollars with some models more expensive depending on specific features.

Ice Machines For Restaurants

Restaurants particularly must ensure their ice machines are well maintained and cleaned regularly due to consistent wear and tear. There is also the added burden of being more closely looked at by health department officials than some other business types. You want to work with a company that not only knows how to install and service your restaurant’s commercial ice machine but that also can advise you on the best course of action for preventative maintenance and cleaning. Tri-Point has worked with restaurants both large and small to ensure their installs go perfect and to make sure the equipment stays clean and compliant with all health regulations.


Ice Makers For Office Break Rooms

Similar to restaurants, ice machines in office break rooms must be installed correctly and regularly maintained and cleaned to ensure clean ice that doesn’t taste funny. This means everything from the water and filtration systems to the refrigeration must work correctly and be serviced regularly. The last thing you want is your employees getting sick from dirty ice due to mold growth in your machine. This can lead to downtime in your office place and potential loss of revenue. Your Tri-Point technician will work with you to better understand your specific equipment and to ensure it stays in perfect working order to keep your employees happy and healthy.

Hotel Ice Machines

Hotel Ice machines can be another piece of equipment prone to mold growth if installed and maintained incorrectly. Because these machines receive regular use from guests that may or may not take the best care of them, it’s important to have them cleaned regularly. You don’t want complaints on review websites or directly to your companies headquarters due to mold in an ice machine or because the machines are out of order altogether. Tri-Point can help with routine maintenance and 24 hours a day emergency repairs to make sure your machines stay in proper working order.


Types Of Ice Makers

Not all commercial ice machine models are the same and, depending on where your machine will be and who will be the primary user, there may be a specific model better suited for your business. Tri-Point technicians will work to understand your business and needs to help select the perfect model for you.

Undercounter Ice Makers

Commercial under-counter ice makers are typically smaller in size and made to fit under counters and bars for space-saving. These are commonly used by bars and sometimes in office break rooms due to their ability to produce up to 350 lbs. of ice per day on average. Some of the more popular brands of commercial under-counter ice machines include Scotsman, Manitowoc Ice, and Hoshizaki. These commercial ice machines can usually range in price between one and four thousand dollars with some models more expensive depending on specific features.

Countertop Ice Machines

Commercial countertop ice machines are the model more commonly seen in restaurants and office break rooms. These typically produce around 400 lbs. of ice per day and make it easier for customers or employees to fill up cups or glasses. Whereas an under-counter ice maker requires you to use a scoop to get ice, countertop ice machine models have a lever or sensor that dispenses the ice as needed. Costs for countertop ice machines can range from a few thousand dollars up to ten thousand depending on features such as added water dispenser and other extra features. Some of the more popular brands for commercial countertop ice machines include Manitowoc, Hoshizaki, Follet, and Scotsman.

Modular Ice Makers

Modular ice makers are best for businesses that go through large amounts of ice each day. These types of ice machines come in two separate parts with the actual ice maker on the top and a dispenser bin at the bottom. These commercial ice machine types are commonly seen in larger restaurants, cafeterias, and hotels. You can reasonably expect between 250 and 1000 lbs. of ice per day depending on the size of the model you choose. Modular ice makers can run anywhere from a few thousand dollars up to ten thousand dollars or more depending on the capacity and capabilities.
