One hundred and fifteen years ago, Emery Thompson designed and patented the world’s first automated batch freezer. For 115 consecutive years our family owned business has been providing the world with the highest quality batch freezers for the production of all levels of hard ice cream (premium, super premium, Hagen Daz, frozen custard), Artisan Gelato, all old world water ice (ITALIAN ICE, sorbet, sorbetto) products and Dairy Free ice cream.
Today, our President Steve Thompson, his wife Paula Thompson (Office Manager), Samantha Jane Thompson (Goodwill Ambassador and Chief of Security) and our entire family of dedicated employees continue the tradition begun in New York in 1905. Simply stated, we build the world's highest quality, most reliable and innovative batch freezers.
These qualities are hallmarks of the Emery Thompson line of Batch Freezers. And we know this because our family invented them!
Slices Concession started in 2009 a few years after founders Chino and Joe opened and operated a gelato specific ice cream shop. We were shocked at the price of new ice cream equipment, however it was required to make high quality artisan gelato. While looking in the used market, we noticed there were not much and very inconsistent equipment available, mostly from people who had no idea if the machines were functional or didn't know much about ice cream to begin with.
At that point we had attended some of the best ice cream classes available, and had experience operating a gelato shop for over 4 years. We felt like we were in a unique position to help many entrepreneurs in similar situations who may not have funds for new equipment, get started in the ice cream industry. As the company grew, our standards, volume, and size grew. In 2013, the company brought in Evan to spearhead the west coast branch of Slices Concession. Since 2013, Slices Concession has become the nation’s largest wholesaler of fully working used frozen dessert machines. From small margarita machines for the backyard party to high end, commercial production. We have helped thousands of entrepreneurs like you, and are constantly available to them for consulting advice and equipment support.
