Here at Paul’s Drive-In we strive for the utmost delicious service in the business! We have been providing excellent service and Ice cream since 1956 and it doesn’t stop with just our restaurant. With our machine rentals, we deliver your desired machine, set it up, tear it down, and pick it up without any hassle on your part!

We have two different sizes of Ice cream machines:

Small - 110 volt electricity. These soft serve ice cream machines are great for small gatherings such as birthday parties and family reunions. This machine is best if used for events with a sporadic crowd. Note: These pull a heavy amount of electricity, so we highly recommend that the machine run on its own circuit, plugged directly into the wall. There must be updated electric with a 115 volt 20 amp breaker for the most efficient use. These machines are on wheels and are free-standing at approximately 18” wide, 30” long, 48” tall, weighing close to 300 lbs. Small machines are single flavor units only.

Big – 220 volt electricity. These soft serve ice cream machines are great for any party with a large crowd, such as graduation parties, company picnics, employee appreciation days, etc. These machines can handle a continuous crowd with ease. Note: 220 volt 30 amp minimum electricity is needed, such as a stove or dryer outlet. We do provide extension cords if needed. These machines are on wheels and are free-standing at approximately 24” wide, 36” long, 60” tall, weighing over 500 lbs. Big machines come in single flavor or double flavor units.
