Stadiums Need Big Ice



Think over the events you’ve attended.   Where were the largest ones held?  Mine were in stadiums.  Think about your stadium purchases.  (Don’t think long.  You could buy a small car with what you’ve spent.  That might make you weep.)  What’s the one thing you’ve purchased at every event?  Based on the length of the lines, you’re like me.  You bought something to drink, most likely for several people.  Like me, you may have wondered if those cups came with an optional diving board.  Have you ever thought to multiply the number of cups by the number or people you see holding them?  Next time, after the event, look around.  Hundreds of them are everywhere.  Each contained ice when it was sold.  Stadiums unquestionably have a need for ice storage no one else has.

Step Up Your Fried Chicken with the R & V Works Cajun Fryer



Chicken, fish or fries this fryer does It all. Brought to you by R&V Works this Super 6 gallon capacity fryer is all you need to fry it up. This fryer comes with 2- baskets so you can load them whatever you may want to fry. This fryer is very versatile and requires very little maintenance, and the quality is phenomenal. The success of these fryers comes from the design of the Burner/Flue. The Burner is positioned 6? above the bottom of the oil reservoir and is at a 45 degree angle. This prevents the food batter from collecting on the burner and allows it to fall to the bottom of the reservoir. Since heat rises, the bottom never gets hotter than 120 degrees, which isn’t hot enough to burn or scorch the batter.

Low Country Boil With The Folks At JES



Some weeks back, Eric swore that he would treat the whole company to a Low Country Boil, and yesterday, finally, he lugged a pair of propane tanks into the warehouse and fired up a big, round metal pot brimmed to the lid with red potatoes, sausages, fresh shrimp, and half-cobs of sweet yellow corn. An hour before closing-time, that spicy shrimpy smell had drifted from the warehouse into our office and hovered, cruelly, right in front of our faces. If you called us last night and we sounded a touch distracted, well, I apologize.
