Ice cream parlour de Hoop | Blaricum

February 2022

IJssalon de Hoop in Blaricum has been a household name in 't Gooi and surroundings for more than 100 years. The showcase of IJssalon De Hoop is standard filled with different flavours. We, from Veenhuizen Groep B.V., have had a cooperation with IJssalon de Hoop for almost 60 years. In 1950, Slob Koudetechniek, part of the Veenhuizen Group B.V., started a refrigeration installation company specialising in traditional ice cream equipment.

The equipment of the "old" ice cream parlour was delivered and installed by Slob Koudetechniek to their satisfaction more than 25 years ago. About 3 years ago, our colleagues, Wouter and Menno, were invited by the owners Carolien and Daan to think along about the renewed IJssalon de Hoop.

The ice cream kitchen was rebuilt and expanded in early spring 2021. Veenhuizen supplied various types of equipment. For example, a Rhima slide-through dishwasher with supply and discharge tables. A 4 door freezer with shock freezing capacity especially for ice cream. The climate is controlled by an LG airco-heat pump, the air vents are built into the ceiling.

Not only the functional area had to be renewed, but the salon itself was also given a new look and was more than twice as large.

Carolien and Daan went to the GeloStandard factory in Italy and chose the Spring ice cream display case. A display case with a classic look, but a special design with a slight radius. The first in the Netherlands! This display case has space for 54 ice cream cans of 10 litres and is literally the centre where everything revolves around in this beautiful and very busy ice cream parlour.

We also supplied the custom-made ice-cream display case for the sundaes, with a chilled fruit display case next to it and chilled drawers under the fruit trays. On the back wall, a functional and beautiful coffee cabinet with storage space and a fridge. Also a beautiful ice cream cake showcase with glass on four sides and special lighting for optimal presentation.

The climate is controlled by the LG air-conditioning heat pump, and the outlet grilles are built into the ceiling and concealed in the same pink colour as the ceiling.

Finally, Veenhuizen Groep B.V. also gave a lot of attention to the technique and a high reliability. The air-cooled cooling units are placed in the basement under the ice cream parlour with a strong air ventilation system. The cooling units are very strong in capacity, an additional water cooling guarantees reliable operation even at tropical outdoor temperatures.
