In our other blog post, we calculated that a smaller Walk-In Cooler or Freezer can cost roughly $5.00 per day to operate, while a larger Walk-In can cost as much as $10.00 per day or more.

Occasionally, business slows down unexpectedly, or there’s a need to shut down for a short time in order to keep the ledger in the black.
