Brandon Ristaino

Owner, Good Lion Cocktails & Test Pilot Cocktails

“As a craft bar owner, having the right types of ice is extremely important for my operations.  I have trusted AJAX Refrigeration and their full service leasing program to deliver the right ice making equipment at affordable rates, with superb service to back it up!  I have been very impressed with the Ajax team and we use them for leasing, sales and service.”

Jose Sepulveda

Owner, Lilly’s Taqueria

“Lilly’s Taqueria has been leasing an ice machine from AJAX for many years and this has saved us lots of money and stress over the years. We never have to worry about our equipment breaking down because they include service and maintenance all in one low monthly payment. The staff is super friendly and helpful and whenever we have had a problem with our ice machine, the AJAX staff is always right there to fix the problem. Lilly’s Taqueria is excited to be opening our second restaurant in Goleta soon, and you can bet we will be leasing another ice machine from AJAX. Thank you for your great service!”

Martin Gonzalez

La Super Rica

“La Super Rica” has been working with AJAX Santa Barbara Refrigeration for more than twenty years, and they have earned our trust and gratitude over these past years. We first hired AJAX to perform preventive maintenance on all of our refrigerators; freezers and ice machine, so honestly I can tell you that because of AJAX’s regular preventive maintenance services we have never had our equipment break down un-expectantly. As a small and very busy restaurant, we cannot afford to have any downtime with our refrigerators, we would literally have to close the restaurant down and turn away our hungry customers! We really appreciate the level of service and communication that we have received from AJAX over the years. When we do have problems with our equipment, the AJAX staff is there right away to offer solutions and help us solve our problems. La Super Rica is a very satisfied customer!”
