Touchless Cold-Water Innovation from Marco Beverage Systems 

Posted on


Available now, the new hands-free cold-water chiller and dispenser from Marco Beverage Systems eliminates hygiene concerns with touch-free design

Providing fresh, healthy drinking water, reducing the carbon footprints, and implementing visible hygiene and safety measures are some of the biggest considerations within the foodservice and facilities management industries today.

The new FRIIA hands-free cold-water chiller and dispenser is latest release from Marco Beverage Systems. FRIIA is the ideal solution for operators looking to replace bottled water with point-of-use systems, while still considering hygiene and design.

FRIIA is a stylish take on point-of-use water and commands the type of rentals that are typically seen with premium countertop machines. With a sleek, stylish, and space-saving aesthetic FRIIA is ideal for high end, design-oriented clients who also wish to provide a touch-free journey for their users or consumers.

FRIIA offers multiple formats – hot/cold/sparking – with all the key components under the counter and the only countertop element embodied in a slim brushed-metal font.

Eliminating hygiene concerns

While the existing models require a simple, single touch of a button, the new touch free version eliminates any hygiene concerns as it completely removes the single customer touchpoint.

The font is activated by a user holding their hand about 4 inches over the top. This means that the actual font is never touched. This also means that spillage or accidental overflow if a cup if left on under the font is not an issue.

FRIIA is another Marco Beverage Systems product with the defining characteristics of sleek design, precision control and energy-efficiency. Drinking water options for the workplace have changed dramatically in the past decade, as clients are rejecting plastic bottles, while frowning on touch points and the carbon footprint associated with 5-gallon water bottle delivery.FRIIA is up to 23% more energy-efficient than leading competitors and eliminates single-use plastic in any foodservice, OCS, vending or micro market application. In February 2020, FRIIA won the Energy Efficiency Innovation award at Food & Bev Live 2020.

FRIIA’s undercounter chiller incorporates aluminium block technology to chill incoming water by an average of 18˚F and operators have the option to choose whatever filtration system will work best for their specific location’s needs.

FRIIA hands-free is available to order now from Marco partners around the world. To find the Marco Distributor in your area, click here or contact
