For restaurants, pubs, bars and other entertainment venues around the world, Spirit Ice Vice® has become an essential accessory.
Spirit Ice Vice® is more than an ice ball machine –
it is the greatest show on ice
a 60-second show that puts a buzz in the air that
leads to increased revenue.
For those looking to take brand promotion to new levels, Spirit Ice Vice® is up to the challenge.
When customers come through your door, let a customized Spirit Ice Vice® greet them. We will, at no additional charge, laser etch the logo of your choice onto your machine’s exterior.
Our brand inserts make it possible to put your brand on an ice ball as it is being formed. And once the ice ball is branded, the branded segment becomes the lightest part of the ball, always floating your brand up. Just think: Before every perfect sip of that cocktail, they will see your brand.
For those who want a different look, we are happy to assist in designing a Spirit Ice Vice® that has the shape and color you want. On the growing list of partners we have designed and manufactured custom products for are The Edrington Group (for The Macallan®), Chivas Brothers (for Royale Salute), Chicago Bridge & Iron and Heart of America Group.
Heart of America Group
Heart of America (HOA) Group opened its first restaurant, The Iowa Machine Shed, in June of 1978. Almost forty years later, Heart of America has added additional brands to the portfolio which include: Thunder Bay Grille, Johnny’s Italian Steakhouse, The J Bar and The Republic on Grand. When HOA added Spirit Ice Vice® to The J Bar and Republic on Grand’s beverage service, the call was made for customized bottle-shaped Spirit Ice Vice® machines.
“We believe that the guest experience is just as important as the food and drinks they order,” said Michelle Sparkman, director of marketing and training for HOA Group. “Customers are able to feel like they are a part of the drink experience, and it feels more personal. Most people are amazed how quickly the ice ball can be made – there are a lot of photos and videos taken of the process. This is great for us as a business, because they are usually shared on social media and get us additional promotion we don’t have to pay for. To have a customer share their experience via Facebook, Instagram or Snapchat is invaluable to us.”
Regardless of the shape or pantone, let our design team create a customized Spirit Ice Vice® for your venue.
