Online dealer eCatering has reported a flurry of sales for bottle coolers, fridges, freezers and one of its most popular products: glasswashers.
Thanks to the popularity of the World Cup, the warm summer, and with more bars, micro pubs and restaurants expanding further, eCatering has been outstripping last year’s sales of its bottle coolers by a long way.
eCatering’s marketing manager, Mike Morris, said: “These versatile and energy efficient units have always been a good seller for us but to see this level of demand is unprecedented, but totally understandable considering the World Cup and the summer we’ve had.
“We have had to order many more than normal and along with the summer heat, refrigeration was a huge seller in the market.”
This summer has seemingly been good for the hospitality industry as a whole, with sales increasing on 2017.
