Our Most Popular Ice Machine and Dispenser For Professional Offices


Whether you’re looking to buy or rent, an ice machine is an invaluable addition to your office. In this blog, You’ll find the information you need to not only make an informed purchase, but also to understand why your friend’s office recently picked up this new ice machine that produces the best ice they’ve ever had.

If you’re a professional office manager, I’m sure “Should I rent or buy my ice maker for this office?” crosses your mind often. We’re to tell you right off the bat that yes, you should add an ice maker or machine to your office. Big or small, it can be a fantastic addition to you and your team’s daily work routine. 

Before we get started, think big picture. Ask yourself the following questions:

  • How many employees work in the office on a weekly basis?
  • Do you have a dedicated food preparation space?
  • Do you have a floor drain?
  • Do you have the need for more than one ice maker?

There’s a lot to consider, which is why we write these blogs (check out our blog, The Scoop, for more!) and offer dedicated customer support during our business hours. You don’t have to make a big decision like this alone.

Ice machines are certainly not one size fits all. The bigger the office, the bigger the machine! We offer a few pearl ice makers here at Memphis Ice, but two stand above the rest: the UGC Undercounter Pearl Ice Machine and the Pearl Ice and Water Dispenser.

Why Pearl Ice?


This is the ice you love from some of your favorite restaurants, like Sonic or Chick-Fil-A. It’s like its own food! Regular cubed ice from your refrigerator forms differently, resulting in a different texture and faster melting point. Pearl ice is more compact than regular ice, absorbs liquid, and somehow still melts slower! It’s miracle ice. And that’s why it’s time you bring it to the office. Your team will love you for it.
