RSI Installs Frosty Factory Remote Cooled Frozen Drink System for Daiquiri Depot in Arlington TX

RSI installs 9 remote cooled frozen drink machines in a system consisting of 9 Frosty Factory Model 235 dispensers with 3 remote condensing units for a local operator in Arlington Texas.

Daiquiri Depot is a small restaurant and beverage operation located across the street from the Generals Motors Assembly Plant in Arlington Texas.  They are also in close proximity to the Texas Rangers Globe Life Park and the Cowboys ATT stadium.

They serve some of the best daiquiris in the area along with a tasty selection of bar foods and appetizers. Seating is available inside and on the patio with live entertainment on select nights.

Daiquiri Depot chose 9 Frosty Factory R235 remote cooled frozen drink machine dispensers with 3 remote condensing units to achieve the performance and operation they needed in the limited space they had available.

Frosty Factory Model 235 R

The Frosty Factory Model 235 comes in a few different configurations. Daiquiri Depot chose the remote condensing unit version due to limited space in the establishment.  The Frosty Factory 235 features a large 12-quart cylinder and is a high production unit.  Power is 120v at 60hz single phase pulling 6 amps, which makes powering the units very easy.

Each individual unit measures 32 inches high, by 16 ½ inches wide and 26 inches deep.  The 9-unit setup RSI installed for Daiquiri Depot is a little over 12 feet wide without any wasted space between the machines.

The Frosty Factory Model 235 can serve up to 320 10-ounce drinks per hour.  A lighted sign on the front of each machine allows highlighting the flavor for the customers. An integrated switch places the machine into standby mode for overnight refrigeration of the product mix.

3 Model 235’s can operate on one remote condensing unit.  RSI installed 3 remote condensing units to run 9 Frosty Factory R235 remote cooled frozen drink machines for Daiquiri Depot.

The remote condensing unit allows the machines to be placed directly against one another to form a wall of daiquiri machines.  There is no side clearance required, and only a 6-inch clearance required for the rear of the machines.

This saves space and presents a nice aesthetic to the customer.  There is no wasted space between machines with the remote condensing unit set up.

The remote condensing unite comes in an air-cooled or water-cooled version. Daiquiri Depot chose the air cooled units and located them on the roof where they would be less susceptible to damage or vandalism.  The units require 208v 60hz single phase and draw 22 amps.

Each unit weighs approximately 220 pounds and is 19 inches wide, by 24 inches long, by 23 inches high.  The remote condenser runs on a 3 HP compressor and utilizes R404A refrigerant.  The remote condensing units free up space in the establishment while providing reliable maintenance-free operation.

Frosty Factory Profit Calculator

Are you wondering what the return is on a Frozen Drink Machine for your establishment?

Frosty Factory offers a unique Profit Calculator on their website where you can enter the a few drink variables and immediately see what your profit is.  It makes it easily to determine how quickly you will recoup your capital and installation costs.

To keep capital expenses low, look at leasing the machines you will need.  This allows you to free up capital and start generating the profits sooner.  Another advantage is that leasing will allow you to maintain the machines with a maintenance program so contingencies are completely covered.

Frosty Factory also has a nice “Will Serve” chart (download here)showing how fast each machine fills, recovers, and initial start up takes. It also shows the maximum drink size available and recovery time after it is poured.  It is a good starting point if you need to do some rough calculations to determine what machine you might need.

Conclusion

RSI helped Daiquiri Depot install a remote cooled frozen drink machine to create the concept they knew their customers would appreciate and enjoy.  The Frosty Factory R235 units provide a visually appealing aesthetic for the customer and space savings for the operator while maximizing the square foot profits by mounting the condensing units remotely.
