JAM INNS ICE DELIVERY FOR LARGE CHRISTMAS PARTIES & EVENTS:
If your planning a Christmas Party event & need ice, now is the time to be thinking about organising it. Typically December is one of the busiest months of the year for ice for bars, restaurants & large catered Christmas party events. Bars & Restaurants typically have quite a consistent consumption of ice but it becomes quite a finger in the air game with large scale one off events & corporate party functions.
HOW MUCH TO ORDER:
We recommend a guideline of 1kg per person for drinks or if you require the ice for cooling as well we have a guideline of 1.5kg per person. This can work quite accurately with smaller events of 100 – 200 guests but a lot of the event companies around Christmas are catering for 500 – 1000 guests for events so what happens then.
Firstly you ultimately have two choices, do you want to over order & have slightly to much ice, or under order & run out. If your aim is to order the exact amount your going to need for an event of 1,000 guests & get it to the cube right or bagâ€¦ go & buy a lottery ticket now. The reality is for large scale events as with your fresh bar ingredients like limes, mint & other fresh fruits for your drinks you will most likely have some ice wastage for a large event & itâ€™s something you might just have to accept. The cost of ice is almost certainly going to be the cheapest part of your event so it would be better to be slightly over than run out & not be able to serve the drinks.
All our ice crushed & cubed comes in 10kg bags.
WHEN TO GET THE ICE DELIVERED:
If your having a large amount of ice 500kg – 1,000kg for an event, this will hold if kept together for hours with ease. As itâ€™s a large volume we donâ€™t recommend you place the order to arrive just before your guests turn up. Give yourself a little time & order it a few hours prior to the event. If you have refrigerated storage onsite get the ice in as early as possible so itâ€™s there & ready to use.
WHERE TO STORE THE ICE:
Leaving the ice outside, this is common for Christmas events for catering companies to have an area outside the venue where they may section off & store large volumes of ice if they donâ€™t have freezer storage onsite. Typically temperatures around Christmas time will be so low if the ice is all stacked together in a private area outside during an evening event it will be the best solution for a large volume if you donâ€™t have a freezer room or freezer trailer onsite.
The ideal solution will be a fridge or freezer trailer however, often temperatures in December are often around the same temperature as a fridge anyway so you can decide if the additional cost is worth the hire fee.
