Middleby-owned Automatic Bar Controls, also known in the market as the brand ‘Wunder-Bar’, has acquired the line of Starline bubblers from the Cleland Sales Corporation.
Starline is a line of non-carbonated beverage dispensers. The dispenser can carry products such as iced tea, lemonade and fruit punch and comes in one, two or three-bowl models.
They are in use at many restaurants including large QSR establishments.
“Starline is an important acquisition for the Middleby Beverage Group as it is our entrance into non-carbonated drink dispense and expands our product offering in the category,” said Middleby Beverage Group president Korey Kohl. “Starline is a leader in the industry and a respected, well-known brand.”
The products will continue to carry the Starline brand and will be manufactured by Wunder-Bar in its Vacaville, Calif. facility.
Production will begin in mid-May with product availability set for June 30.
