I would like to thank the AFB team for making this happen. The cases were received on-time, as ordered and have been installed for the grand opening. We are very satisfied.
It is truly appreciated and will be remembered. Great job.

I was extremely pleased with our shoppers’ response to our Atlantic Food Bars 2-level refrigerated olive bar. Olive sales have grown beyond my expectations! Also, the compact soup bar we put in at the same time as the olive bar has proven to be a great addition to our prepared foods offering, and takes so little floor space. By the way, we are still using the end-cap hot hexagon case you built for our store 14 years ago!
Atlantic Food Bars is our GO TO company for all of our hot food needs. Last year when we wanted to try a new hot food concept, in less than 2 days, Atlantic Food Bars designed and engineered a custom case to meet our needs. We have been so pleased with it, we are including it in all of our upcoming remodels and new stores and we just ordered a custom hot and cold sandwich prep and merchandising station.
In 2012, I ordered 4 mobile ice tables for seafood merchandising and they did such a great job for us, I just ordered another one !
Several years ago we ordered our first Atlantic Food Bars soup bar and were so pleased with it, when it was time to order a new hot case, we tried them again and loved that case as well. We now have Atlantic Food Bars soup bars and hot food bars in 7 of our stores and would recommend them to anyone in the market for hot food equipment. Temperature maintenance is never a problem and the cases are built to last.
11th hour changes to our floor plans precluded us from finalizing our equipment order for 10 cases in our deli department, much of which was custom, until less than 8 weeks before our grand opening. This included pizza, sushi, sandwich, burrito prep, salad bar, soup bar, hot food and grab & go meals. Atlantic Food Bars delivered the standard equipment to our store in less than 5 weeks and the custom equipment in 6 weeks. We relied upon Atlantic Food Bars for great equipment and a fast turnaround on custom cases, and they delivered !
