Food and Beverage Equipment Rentals


Whether you’re setting up a new business or upgrading your existing equipment, locating the right food and beverage equipment is an essential part of keeping your business running smoothly. For smaller businesses, having the latest professional-grade gadgets and storage solutions may be difficult if you don’t have a lot of initial capital to work with, which makes equipment rentals a feasible solution.


At Herc Rentals, we help businesses of all sizes and in all industries have the correct equipment to provide a safe and efficient environment to complete daily operations. Contact us to learn more.



Specialized Equipment for Food and Beverage Equipment Applications


The food and beverage industry covers a wide range of businesses. From cafeterias and fast-food joints to food manufacturing operations and industrial-scale food prep, having the right equipment is essential for the success of any business. At Herc Rentals, our subject-matter experts understand the unique needs of each industry and work hard to provide top-of-the-line specialized equipment from some of the most trusted brands in the industry. Businesses we work with include:


  • Restaurants and cafeterias. New facilities may want to save their working capital for other expenses, which makes equipment rental an optimal solution. Special or additional material handling gear may also be needed for peak business times, during promotional events or when regular equipment breaks and requires repairs.
  • Healthcare and institutional dining operations. Hospitals, medical office buildings, schools and universities benefit from versatile and reliable equipment, including food and beverage equipment rentals, to maintain high hygiene standards. At Herc Rentals, we provide everything from refrigeration units, to store large quantities of perishables safely, to floor sweepers to help these organizations comply with sanitation requirements.
  • Food manufacturing and processing. The right food and beverage processing equipment can make all the difference in the quality of the product, production capabilities and the overall success of the company. Renting expensive large equipment offers numerous advantages over purchasing, including reduced upfront costs, enhanced productivity and lower maintenance responsibilities.
  • Grocery stores and retail establishments. These food service businesses rely on power to stay in business. Our gas- and diesel-powered generators keep necessary equipment, such as coolers and freezers, running in the event of a power outage, which prevent the loss of inventory.
  • Catering and hospitality. Large-scale events, such as weddings, corporate gatherings and banquets, often require quick setup and breakdown times. Food and beverage equipment rentals, such as forklifts make the task easier by allowing businesses to move large amounts of materials at once. Because these are specialty events, renting over buying makes more sense.


Herc Rentals delivers high-quality, specialized equipment for a variety of food and beverage industry applications to ensure the job is completed efficiently.
