Last but not least, FWE offers Refrigeration solutions that operate in the most demanding and punishing environments.  Tough construction absorbs vibration and shock during transport.  FWE’s forced air “COLD-TEMP” system maintains a balanced temperature that gently circulates cold air evenly throughout the cabinet.

Legendary Solutions for One World Observatory

Food Warming Equipment Co. (FWE) has begun shipping our latest Heated Holding Carts and Cabinets to the new World Trade Center in New York City.

Scheduled to open in early 2015, the beautiful 120,000 square foot One World Observatory will soon become the premier destination to host special events and banquets in New York City.


Last year the internationally renowned Legends Hospitality was challenged to create, and endorsed by Governors Cuomo and Christie, to maintain and operate the three story observation deck atop the new World Trade Center.  This project would bring a world-class observation deck to what will be the tallest building in the Western Hemisphere when it reaches its final height of 1776 feet.

Legends is among the most recognized and established companies in entertainment and sport.  Renowned for delivering a multitude of services to world recognized venues which include; Yankee Stadium, Cowboys Stadium and the most recent Levi’s Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49’rs.  All venues that bring the experience of sport to a new level of accommodation and style and all venues where FWE / Food Warming Equipment Co. solutions can be found.

Beginning at Level 100, the 3 Story observation deck will feature dining options, special events spaces for banquets and catering.  The facility promises to deliver an experience that will educate and entertain with the latest in digital technology and breathtakingly amazing views that will look out over the Hudson River, Ellis Island, the Statue of Liberty and eternal views of the skyline of New York.

Soon, the One World Observatory will feature contemporary and sophisticated dining options on Level 101 with  breathtaking views of the skyline.  Internationally inspired cuisine will be featured on a menu of gourmet offerings as well as casual meals.  The space will provide for great flexibility, allowing multiple events, simultaneously, while  guests enjoying the observation deck continue sightseeing undisturbed.

From Heated Holding Carts and Banquet Cabinets to Air Screen Refrigeration and Custom Mobile Bars, FWE provides the kind of solutions that help organizations like Legends meet the challenges of delivering on a grand experience that take sport and entertainment to a new level of expectation and dependability.  FWE delivers it’s own successful experience in manufacturing to the kind solutions needed for the most sophisticated VIP Skybox to servicing tens of thousands of fans simultaneously.

Custom Banquet Transport – Special Delivery

Duane Welch, Director of Stewarding for The Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, partnered with Food Warming Equipment Owner and President Deron Lichte to design special equipment, including rolling refrigerated and delivery carts, to be used in the hotel’s banquet areas.  “We were able to create a shelving piece that allowed better security for the sheet pans holding the food,” says Welch.  “During transport, we don’t have salads falling all over the place.”

The team created labor- and storage-efficient mat delivery carts that don’t drip on and destroy mats in the hotel’s kitchen.  Additionally, the Cosmopolitan uses FWE’s single-drawer, electric- and sterno-approved heated cabinets, which allow heat to be built back up to the food during transport.

FWE also Offers double speed Racks that are cross-functional for moving plated products to banquet rooms and accepting trays of dirty dishes afterward, allowing for the use of a single cart rather than taking up valuable hallway space with the multiple carts, says Welch. -MP
