Delivering Good Things

The perfect temp equals the perfect taste

"I found working with Bill Elliott at Northeast Great Dane to be very easy. He listened to our needs and made sure that the units were designed to our specs. His attention to detail makes me wished he worked for me.”
Sal Piazza, Owner of Piazza’s Ice Cream & Ice House

Piazza’s Ice Cream & Ice House believes that too much of a good thing is good! Sal Piazza and his wife Tricia, own and operate the full service distribution company, which delivers ice cream, ice cubes, dry ice, ice sculptures, rock salt and ice luges in to mom and pop stores throughout New York City, Brooklyn and Staten Island. According to Sal Piazza, “When it comes to dedication and keeping promises, our efforts are directed first and foremost to our customers. One of the things that we hear over and over again is that our customers enjoy our promptness assisting them. We will drive through even the stormiest days to ensure that every order arrives on time— and at the right temperature. We not only pride ourselves on our delivery service, but also that we have friendly drivers, clean trucks and warehouses that are accessible to our customers with freezers that are full of inventory.”

Reputation & Quality

Piazza’s Ice Cream & Ice House runs a fleet of 10 compartmentalized trucks, three of which are Johnson Refrigerated Truck Body (JRTB) trucks. The units, which have five compartments on each side that hold cargs, which are removable, containers that can be loaded by hand, stored in the freezer and then placed in the compartments prior to deliver—this process saves time. Piazza notes that his first JRTB trucks were used units, he was so pleased with their performance that he decided to place an order for customized JRTBs the next time he needed trucks. “I chose the JRTB trucks because of their excellent reputation and quality. The compartments are all set at the same temperature, and hold that temperature steady throughout delivery during the day.” 

Piazza goes on to say, that has he spec’d out his custom JRTB trucks with his dealer,” I found working with Bill Elliott at Northeast Great Dane to be very easy. He listened to our needs and made sure that the units were designed to our specs. His attention to detail makes me wished he worked for me.”
