Our success stories
EDEKA Ueltzhöfer, Ellhofen
Steffen Ueltzhöfer, in his newest EDEKA store in Ellhofen, consistently focuses on fresh produce competency, regionality and the immediate spatial proximity of the service counter and the self-service area. And with success. The location, which opened in 2018, generates around half of its turnover with fresh products. It becomes visible and tangible in the meat, cheese and sausage, fruit and vegetable departments. Written in big letters on the wall and of course, in the local dialect. For Steffen Ueltzhöfer, the visibility of the goods is a key success factor in the fresh produce sector. That's why he opted for the Sirius III counter system with two elements from the AirMaxx circular circulating air refrigeration counter for the meat, fish, cheese and sausage departments. And because he has the Swabian aspiration to always want to do a "little bit better" at every newly opened store, as a pilot customer he has set up six elements of the new TopSpot MIO+ series of self-service refrigerated counters. He expects the new AICHINGER series to provide more product visibility, more energy efficiency and, above all, more flexibility when it comes to assigning different temperature requirements.
With the new TopSpot MIO+ series from AICHINGER, products with different temperature requirements can be presented together for the first time in a self-service refrigerated counter. Ever faster changing food trends and consumption habits require self-service refrigeration units in the food retailing sector that can be used in a variety of ways and can be easily adapted to changes in the product range. The new AICHINGER TopSpot MIO+ series is ideal for the self-service range of meat, sausage, cheese, fish, fruit and vegetables. In addition, drinks or packaged salads and snacks can also be presented in an eye-catching way. The highly efficient refrigeration technology and the unique variability of the presentation forms made it possible to present products with different temperature requirements in a single refrigerated counter in a reliable, energy-efficient and HACCP-compliant manner.
QUAI4 – Simply good
QUAI4 Market Alpenquai from the social institution „Wärchbrogg“ in Luzern is the first and to date the only „Re-fill market” in Central Switzerland.
Wärchbrogg employs people – predominantly with mental illness – in sheltered workplaces. In the Quai4 Market, there are now 10 employees working who are accompanied and supported by qualified personnel. With more than 100 different foods such as pasta, muesli, nuts and grains, the market offers the possibility to refill the products as needed from the specially made AICHINGER Fill-in Station. Not only does the market pay special attention to sustainability in packaging: all the products in the market are either organic or from the region – for the most part both. Also in the store furnishings, priority was given to sustainability. With the award winning Sirius3 refrigerated counter, the market relies on an absolute efficient counter. Overall, the energy savings increase up to 42% compared with other refrigerated counters, setting a new standard in the industry. In addition, the night time power consumption is significantly reduced through the night time covers. The large crowds and the positive feedback confirm the success of this new concept.

Butchery Hug, Lörrach
In Tumringen, everyone is happy that they have gained a specialist butcher shop in the area of Lörracher. The Hug Butcher and Party Service can look back on a long family tradition and today operates a total of five branches. Managing director Christoph Hug is very aware of the enormous price pressure as well as the competition with discounters and other retailers, Therefore, it is all the more important to provide a versatile and first class product and service quality, the managing director emphasizes.
The new store is the first to have a Dry Ager accessible to customers. As in the other stores, it offers a broad range of butchery products as well as a hot food counter, meals to take away or to consume on the spot. From Monday to Friday, three lunch menus are available to choose from and every morning a small breakfast with hot beverages is served.
The new sales area of the butcher is entered through a spacious foyer. The new furnishings have been worked with lots of elements of wood and warm colours. And of course, the AICHINGER SIRIUS®3 refrigerated counter is not to be missed here. The multi-award winning refrigerated counter keeps the regional sausage and meat products constantly fresh and sets them perfectly into the scene. With that, its size is well suited for future, evening events. The flawless planning was implemented by AICHINGER success consultant Simone Kälble and the Buchenbach Team.
