Featured Case Study: The High No. 1 Hotpot Restaurant

"Essence is the best solution for every Hotpot restaurant. We'll use it year-round because of its energy efficiency and strong, silent performance." Yulian Huang, Owner, Shanghai, China


After hearing of Big Ass Fans® from a friend, Mr. Huang chose an 8-ft. (2.4-m) energy-saving Essence® to match his restaurant’s modern design. The fan immediately made an impact, he says. Both staff and customers are complimentary of its appearance and the comfortable breeze it creates, without making a sound. The air now circulates into every corner of the restaurant, and the smell of hotpot – so enticing on the table – no longer permeates diners’ clothes or hair.
