A "Low Boy" By Any Other Name!

June 26, 2017 No comments

low boyLow-profile horizontal refrigerators and freezers go by a multitude of names, some of which tend to be regional. While many parts of the country call them a refrigerated equipment stand or simply a chef base, in the Midwest we often hear them referred to as a low boy. The term "low boy" is also used to refer to any low-profile refrigerator or freezer used in a commercial setting, including undercounters and worktop refrigerators. In fact, "low boy" can actually mean any refrigerator or freezer that is horizontal and low to the ground.

Jockey BoxWhen trying to find the perfect jockey box for your event, it's easy to get overwhelmed by the amount of options out there. These portable beer coolers vary on everything from number of taps, beer cooling type, and quality of materials.

Choosing the amount of taps you need should be relatively easy. If you occasionally enjoy tailgating and want to use a jockey box to dispense your favorite brew, one tap should probably be enough. If, on the other hand, you are going to a beer festival or other event where you are trying to showcase a number of different beers, the four-tap option would be perfect for you. It can also depend on your space options, as each additional tap means another keg you have to accommodate.

They also found that most of the ice bins that produced a positive result were ones that were used by waitstaff or were otherwise exposed.
