Feb. 15, 2023
On behalf of the winners, Easy Ice donated $5,000 to Feeding America, a charity that supports food banks across the nation, including in all 21 Easy Ice branch and service locations.

Easy Ice, a national provider of all-inclusive commercial ice machine subscriptions, held its inaugural awards ceremony – recognizing one foodservice equipment dealer and one manufacturer representative of the year – at the North American Association of Food Equipment Manufacturers Show earlier this month. The brief ceremony took place at the Hoshizaki America booth.

“2022 was a challenging year in terms of the equipment shortage,” Bruce Trecek, affiliate program director at Easy Ice, said in the announcement. “It feels great to kick off 2023 on a high note, giving these awards at the biggest event for food service equipment dealers in the country.”

Easy Ice chose Berlin’s Restaurant Supply, based in Charleston, South Carolina, as its Dealer of the Year, and Kevin Cox with Cannon Marketing Inc., a Hoshizaki distributor in Kinston, North Carolina, as its Manufacturer Representative of the Year. The winners were recognized for their innovation and customer-first attitude, along with their exceptional collaboration in promoting the Easy Ice subscription as an ice machine rental solution to their customers.

“It’s been a pleasure to work with both Berlin’s and Kevin Cox,” John Mahlmeister, COO at Easy Ice, added in the announcement. “Both demonstrated a willingness to try new things in cooperation with us, which we really appreciate.”

Easy Ice attendees at this year’s NAFEM Show were excited for the opportunity to connect face-to-face with some of its customers and partners in the FES dealer and ice machine manufacturer worlds.This year’s NAFEM Show marked its comeback after a four-year hiatus due to the pandemic. Held every other year, the show brings over 20,000 people and over 500 exhibiting companies together for a weekend of networking and education.
