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!”

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.”

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!”

Jose & Sanjua Gil

Owners at El Sitio Restaurants

“Our experience with Ajax has been excellent over the past 20 years. On the rare occasion we need technical help with refigerator and technicians is there to help and repair the problem in a timely manner. We also have “peace of mind” with the full service leasing program. Regular maintenance keeps our refrigerators running excellent. This is very important to us as we have a great investment in meats, produce, ect. In conclusion, we want to express our gratitude and appreciation for the A+ service Ajax has provided us and we look forward to many more years of the same.”

Ryan Moore

Lucky Llama Coffee

“As a new small business owner who started my business on a tight budget and knowing very little about commercial refrigeration and ice machines, I have come to really appreciate AJAX for their communication, honesty, product knowledge and their response time regarding my needs for service and quotes. From the start AJAX has seemed like they were very solid company and very fair in all of their dealings with me. They have answered my questions, offered solutions and good advice rather than trying to sell me products or service that I don’t need. Since we opened we have added AJAX’s preventive maintenance service that has keep our equipment running great. We have bought new and used equipment that was fairly priced and a good value to my business. The AJAX staff has been phenomenal! I noticed right away that the morale of every member of the AJAX team has been very high, from Chris the owner, down to the service techs working in my store and for me that is a welcome feeling. AJAX has become a strategic partner that we have come to depend on.”

Eva Ein

McConnell’s Ice Cream

“McConnell’s and Ajax share a long history of doing business in Santa Barbara. As the new owners of McConnell’s, it was even more important to align ourselves with the best service available for our vast refrigeration needs. We depend on our freezers! We love working with Ajax’s knowledgeable technicians and really appreciate their attention to customer service.”
