Questions about a Rental? FAQ for Rentals



1.) What is so great about a Bunn Frozen Drink Machine?

Bunn is an American made frozen granita machine with a great warranty. It is easy to operate and keep clean. It has features that other machines of its type don't. For example, the Bunn Ultra II has a reversing auger system. That means that the auger will normally swirl the frozen drink product forward. Then during its cycle, it will stop and reverse itself. This allows for a quicker freeze time and less ice jams. We use these machines in school systems with great results.
