Polar King will be at Booth No. 2039, where cold storage subject matter experts will be in attendance to answer questions and discuss solutions with education administrators and school nutrition specialists. Polar King’s exhibit will include a 5’ x 7’ outdoor refrigerated or freezer walk-in unit, a model Schenkel says is widely utilized by schools nationwide.

Polar King emphasizes the significance of nutrition in conjunction with education to support the overall health and well-being of students. “Our goal at SNA is to promote a better understanding of the critical role of dependable and energy-efficient cold storage solutions in school settings,” says Schenkel.

Regional sales managers Dan Parsenow and Patrick Smith will represent Polar King at its booth. Parsenow recently published an education industry report titled, “Trends and Innovations in Walk-in Cold Storage for Educational Settings,” which shares tips for education kitchen staff and administrators.

Polar King offers electric ground-resting outdoor walk-in freezer and refrigerator units that are delivered preassembled and ready to operate with a simple electrical connection.

About Polar King International

The introduction of the Polar King outdoor walk-in freezer into the food service industry was the result of three generations of walk-in refrigeration technology and experience. Polar King’s fiberglass, one-piece walk-in cooler is the natural evolution of the walk-in cold storage industry from the conventional metal panel constructed unit. In early 1982, Polar King began operations by constructing and shipping walk-ins from a modest 12,000 sq. ft. facility in New Haven, Indiana. As demand grew for outdoor fiberglass commercial walk-in coolers and commercial walk-in freezers, production was moved to a 251,200 sq. ft. facility located in Fort Wayne, Indiana. For 40 years, Polar King has provided thousands of walk-ins to single-unit operators, chain restaurants, schools, health care facilities, government agencies, and many other industries requiring dependable outdoor walk-in refrigeration.
