For many people, there’s nothing better than walking into a bakery and having the smells of fresh-baked breads, donuts and cakes in the air. Sometimes, what’s even better than the smells is strolling through the bakery looking at everything, trying to decide what to buy. Often, the way various foods are displayed can determine which ones become best-sellers. For many bakeries, delis or restaurants there are a variety of display cases available that can showcase jelly-filled donuts or pumpernickel in ways that make them irresistible.
Countertop Pastry Case
When it comes time to choose the best dozen donuts you can buy, an attractive countertop pastry case can make a customer who originally planned on purchasing only one dozen buy a few extra ones to take home with them. These bakery counter displays come with a variety of features, including:
- Wire shelves
- Glass doors
- Acrylic sign panels
Measuring 36 inches high and between 30-35 inches long, these bakery counter displays look great while also making the contents inside them look more appetizing than ever.
Acrylic Display Cases
Along with display cases that have glass doors and metal shelves, many bakeries also use acrylic display cases. These cases not only put the best pastries on display, but allow customers to get a complete look at the items since the cases are completely clear. They range in size, varying from 17-28 inches high with most weighing between 15-30 pounds. However, some acrylic cases are made much bigger and can weigh up to 125 pounds while holding a wide variety of pastries.
A major advantage with bakery counter displays is the ability for customers to serve themselves. This not only increases sales, but lets customers get an up-close and personal view of every chocolate or glazed donut in the shop. Many of these cases also have bag bins located on the bottom, making it easy for either customers or employees to get quick service.
The cost of a countertop pastry case can vary depending upon a number of factors such as:
- Materials used
- Additional accessories
Smaller cases can often cost less than $100, while larger ones with glass doors and metal shelves can cost close to $5,000. No matter what type of bakery or store you may have, there are many different types of display cases that are guaranteed to make the latest batch of donuts irresistible to hungry customers.
