With people becoming more aware of what they eat, and what goes into their food, the trend of at least partially open air market, much like the growing enthusiasm for farmer’s markets, is growing day by day.
Consumers want to be able to not only see what they are buying but be assured that the food they purchase is kept fresh and safe from spoilage, or pests that may make food inedible. In order to ensure food safety, and to make the most use of the often confined space of an open air market, the True TSID-48-2 48” Single-Duty Deli Case is an ideal solution for your store or open air market space.
Features of the True TSID-48-2
This deli case features a rear opening that allows you or your employees to assist customers while the 17 cubic feet of cold space allows buyers an unobstructed view of what you have to offer. The 15v/60Hz/1-ph motor for this deli case is 1/3 HP and runs super quiet while keeping food cold at a constant 38°F - 40°F. It measures 40” by 50” so it doesn’t make too large a footprint for your space. The True, TSID-48-2 weighs just 425 lbs. so it’s solidly made.
The interior for this case is made of aluminum with a stainless steel floor and two PVC coated adjustable shelves so your customers can see the meats, cheeses or side dishes that you offer and makes it easy to clean. The case exterior is white vinyl, which also makes for easy cleaning and care.

It’s a well known fact that people will eat with their eyes long before the food reaches the tip of their tongue. This means that the right presentation can make or break the sales of a restaurant. This is most likely the truest statement when we’re talking about choosing the right sushi display case.
When you’re choosing the right sushi display case, the size of the case really does matter. Most of the cases are measured in inches, where you can go from a small 48” wide to nearly double that at 83” wide. It’s better to go a little larger than what you think you actually need, as it might inspire you to come up with different types of rolls and have more things on hand. Too small, and you’ll be cramped, which might take away from that presentation.
Sometimes, the sushi case is just a case without any refrigeration. It’s necessary to have some chilling on the fish, unless you plan on getting a flake ice machine and cooling the fish out with flake ice (we have a flake ice machine just for you, if you’d like). Make sure that the one you’re after has the type of refrigeration that you need.
If you’re looking at a case and it’s just not for you, don’t get it. We’ve got plenty on hand which can make the choices a little harder, but at the end of the day, you’re going to get the case that you really need. Make sure that the case is easy to get in and out of, as you want your chefs to spend more time making sushi rather than fighting with the equipment.
Choosing the right sushi case is really easy when you know what you’re looking for. There are several selections from which to choose.
We love buffets. Yes, we have that one person on our staff that doesn’t touch buffet with ten-foot poles, but we usually leave them back at the office when it’s time to go to the sushi buffet just down the road.
One of the best parts about the sushi buffet is that they don’t only have at least 30 kinds of sushi rolls available, but they also have a small fleet of large chafing dishes at the end of the line, each housing some greater delicacy than the last.
It was wickedly breaded tempura vegetables the last time. The breading was so delicate that it made for a sublime experience. You’ve most likely had them when you’ve had that piece of deep fried chicken that just hits the spot. Tempura runs a fine line between being heavenly and dreaded.
But honestly, those chafing dishes also bring the ‘special’ sushi rolls. These are gargantuan rolls that are reminiscent of dim sum meeting its more glandular cousin. Like deep fried rice balls that have teriyaki and fish and sauce and… they’re heavenly morsels which are hard to describe – morsels which might break the camera.
Then there’s the ramen noodles. As we have discovered, nothing can beat ramen noodles when they’re prepared right and with the proper vegetables. Aah, buffets.
So, tell us about your favorite buffet? Are there things which make you sigh with happiness when you think about your favorite one? We’d love to know in the comments.
When I was younger, going to the convenience store was always enjoyable because of the ‘random’ factor with the contents of their countertop freezer merchandiser. From week to week, we never knew what was going to be in it, though there was always wonder as to what would be put in it.
Like the one in the picture, there were two shelves, and it was always chock-full of cakes and treats which the owner of the store had brought from home. The owner’s wife was a phenomenal cook, to be sure. We would always look forward to opening the doors.
It was a long counter, too. The freezer was right next to a refrigerator, which was right next to a hot dog roller. The freezer itself had two shelves (making it effectively three) that could be filled with stuff. Put the other stuff around it, and it was right at home. The owner’s wife made the most fabulous cookie material to go with her homemade ice cream sandwiches.
Here are some of the features of the freezer:
- 2 Shelves, small and short enough so even the most curious child can see inside (and hopefully persuade their parents)
- Fluorescent interior lighting. It wasn’t like a normal fridge that waited until it was opened. Being a merchandiser, you could see it from across the room.
- Made in the USA.
- Thermal Door. The door was insulated well enough so that once it was closed, it kept the cold air in without worry.
- Perfect temperature control. Food has to be kept at a specific temperature. Having temperatures that vary can produce issues in the food service business.
There are more features, of course, each one of these designed to give your convenience store freezer the best look and feel possible. Set it up for the impulse buys and see what happens at your location.
Have you ever walked into a store and got hit with a blast of air as you crossed through the entryway? Congratulations, you just got hit with an air curtain. Air curtains are used to keep insects from getting into stores and to increase the efficiency of HVAC systems. Air is forced downward fast enough to keep air on either side from penetrating too far.
The same principle is used in an air curtain merchandiser. These are refrigerated display cases that are open to the customer yet remain cold. A curtain of air blows down over the merchandise to keep it cool and safe for consumption.
Air current merchandisers come in a wide variety of shapes and sizes from small 36” display cases for a lunch line to 72” merchandisers for a hospital cafeteria or large store display. They’re great for when you want your buyers to grab an item and go without having to open a door again and again
To find the right air current merchandiser, think about the size of store that you have and the amount of product that you want displayed. Always go for a little larger than you think you need, because it’s like packing… you can always think of one more thing to add to the box. Here are a few air curtain merchandisers to get you started.
If you’re thinking about opening a deli, a convenience store, or a bagel shop, you’re going to need at least one refrigerated deli case. The type of case which you choose will make the difference in convenience and accessibility for your customers. How do you choose?
Grab-and-Go or Employee Assisted?
The grab and go style of deli case is excellent for places which are serving prepackaged items like containers of yogurt or already wrapped sandwiches. Some situations, however, warrant a more full-service approach – like the services which cut meat on demand.
Do you want storage space underneath?
If a deli case is listed as single duty, it is comprised of simply the case without any storage capacity. If it is listed as double duty, there is a small storage area underneath the case which can be used for extra supplies, ‘working’ meats, or other accoutrements.
Forced Air or Gravity Coil?
The forced air systems circulate the air around the cabinet. These are used in situations where the items aren’t left in the case very long, or they’re impervious to drying out.
The gravity coil system places the refrigeration at the top of the case and allows it to settle down around the material within the case. They’re not actively moving air around the chamber.
How big do I need my refrigerated deli case to be?
Think about the footprint where you’re installing the case. If you’ve got an empty space with which to work, it can be very easy to get items which are too large or too small for the space.
When you’re looking at some of the best deli cases, it can be difficult to really suss out the details which you need. If you’re looking for a case for your new place, take a look through our catalog.
