Wild Fork Foods
Wild Fork Foods, a new retail store exclusively offering frozen food, opened three stores in South Florida in December 2021, each measuring around 5.000 m2 and equipped them with 50 air-cooled propane (R290) freezers. The units of AHT Cooling Systems USA include both horizontal units and superstructure cabinets which offer an optimal space-to-space ratio.
Wild Fork is thus one of the few food retailers to have equipped their entire sales area with R290 freezers.
The single circuit devices are all equipped with doors or lids and have a self-discharge function which means that no further piping is required.
Wild Fork installed the R290 freezers to be “more environmentally friendly” and because it “was beneficial for our purposes”, said Layli Sobhani, retailer’s Head of Brand and Marketing.

Replace the existing RCU configuration with R290 freezers and superstructure cabinets for a more energy-efficient product presentation.
Wild Fork has opted for AHT freezers due to their energy efficiency and high flexibility.
“In particular, the high flexibility of the devices gives us the flexibility to equip the stores in such a way that it fits our product range. In addition, we expect a high energy saving potential due to the doors on the appliances. “ Sobhani continues.
In the United States, AHT has supplied more than 70 Wild Fork stores, where more than half of the refrigerators and freezers use propane as a natural refrigerant.
Propane R290 has a very low Global Warming Potential (GWP) of 0. 02 with a time horizon of 100 years*. Due to the industrial production of the AHT devices, there is an extremely low risk of leakage compared to conventional remote systems. Thanks to AHT’s plug-in concept, adjustments and extensions of the store layout can be implemented immediately without any alterations.
