Restaurant & Foodservice Walk-Ins

Imperial Brown’s commercial walk-in refrigerators and freezers combo unit offer high-volume storage space for restaurants to store perishable food products in bulk. Many models are designed to hold rolling racks or mobile shelving. Available with or without floors or cooling systems, in a huge variety of widths, lengths and heights to fit your available space.

Restaurant freezers for foodservice must maintain temperatures of -10 to 5 degrees Fahrenheit, ensuring foods stay frozen without getting the perishables so cold that the food quality degrades. Imperial Brown offers efficient and organized walk-in refrigeration solutions. Whether your kitchen is in need of an angled, three-chamber walk-in cold room combo, like Goose Creek Convenience Store in northern Virginia; Or an outdoor walk-in freezer that requires panels that withstand 80 mph winds and 30-pound per-square-foot snow loads (South Carolina Elementary School). Imperial Brown works with our clients to create the best commercial refrigerator unit solution.
