Sam’s Club – Metairie, LA

IMG_0082 IMG_0083

Not much to see, I forgot to take a finished picture, but Tony and I were at Sam’s Club last week in Metairie, LA. Kinda cool. If you look by the corner of the wall, on the left, you will see where someone had cut the box in order to make it fit. Horribly jagged cut, but… it is what it is.

Port Eads – Install

Port Eads

– Install of two walk-in cooler/freezer boxes –

Totally forgot to post these photos, but here they are. Without an electrician present all our techs could do was put the boxes together and come back later to start it up.

Winn-Dixie (Kenner, LA) – Demo 13 walk-ins

Laponica Refrigeration got the job to pull down some boxes at the Winn-Dixie on Vintage and Williams. As many in the area is aware Rouses is moving from Chateau and W Esplanade to this location. While we have experience in putting up walk-ins this size – this it was our first attempt at a demo job. Before we start I should thank Walter and his crew for their, beyond expected, high level of work and professionalism. The crew of Fixture Finders, LLC. were also extremely helpful, patient, and kind to us. The photos from this project are divided by day.

Port Eads – Site Visit

Late August Laponica Refrigeration went on a site visit to Port Eads Marina – the southern most point in Louisiana. Ole Andreas Haug, his wife Hoan, and Laponica’s famous tech Dennis went out to take measurements, view the area, and prepare for the future install of a freezer/cooler box. Well… Dennis went out there for that. Mr Haug, yours truly, and his wife went with Dennis for the trips sake. Port Eads is located an hour south of Venice, LA right before you get into the Gulf.

If you would like to know more about Port Heads, and High Adventure Company who now runs and maintans the location, you can visit their website at:

Keep an eye out for more photos. Our crew is scheduled to go down there Thursday November 20th. Photos should be posted sometime the week after.

Walk-In Cooler/Freezer at Raising Cane’s

Laponica recently installed a cooler and freezer walk-in box at Raising Cane’s on both St Charles and S Carrollton. A lot of new things were going on at the time: The office manager, yours truly, was leaving for Vietnam in two weeks, so he had his friend Sheery Berry take photos; Sheery Berry was new, so she also had to be trained in logistics; we even had our very own tolken black guy employee Tony Buddah Brownie starting his first day of work.

In preparation for my trip to Vietnam we also stopped at a Vietnamese restaurant down the street. I don’t care what they tell you, but those weren’t meatballs. They might have been meat rolled into a ball, but they were nothing like the Swedish meatballs you get at Rouses.
