No, our stuff sold fairly quickly. My advice is to buy from as local a source as you can anyway, so you can test it and have some recourse if something doesn't work right.

Hello, the blender model is the VM0100, pretty much their entry level blender with an on/off and a high/low switch.

the blending of the ice is great. one thing that you will find as you make lots of blended drinks is the key is getting the ice to liquid ratio down. you don't want so much ice that its a thick as a shake, but you don't want a watered down drink.

we use Jet product for fruit smoothies, and they are made by taking the size glass the customer wants, filling it with ice, and then pouring the concentrate over the ice till the glass is full, then emptying this into the blender. 30 - 45 seconds is usually enough time to get a really nice smooth blend. blended drinks with powders are something else that we do a lot of , but it is something that you will want to get a recipie that you make consistantly and that the customer wants.

we do wholesale coffee, and you can see most of our selection online here:

good luck with the business!

Hey Mark (?),
Sorry about the typo on the machine. It is a GX14IG Star Grille. It runs off 110 power and is in good shape. My office is based just outside of Indianapolis.

If you have any other needs for your upcoming cart, I'd be glad to assist you. We have a few carts of our own operating around the country so we have been in your position a few times before. My number is 317.502.6697 if you have any questions.
