Weidenfeller Refrigeration is a family tradition.
Rick Weidenfeller, owner of Weidenfeller Refrigeration, used to ride along with his father on service calls and accompany him to the shop on Saturdays. Rick has learned everything he knows from his father. At just 12 years-old, Rick started to help out in the shop. He was handed a torch and given the opportunity to solder and sweat copper fittings.
Rick is a 4th generation refrigeration technician. Just recently, he completed a search and discovery of equipment and installations his grandfather did in the 1940s and ’50s. Rick’s grandfather was a pioneer in ammonia refrigeration and taught his son, Rick’s father, everything he knew about the trade.
Rick has done an excellent job of carrying on the family trade. He has the same commitment, expertise, and convictions that both his father and grandfather had.
Prior to taking over the family business, Rick worked for a company that handled the installation of commercial and industrial blow pipe for local factories, manufacturing plants, and machine shops. He’s also worked in the concrete construction industry. To say that Rick knows his stuff when it comes to the trades would be an understatement!
As his father’s business continued to expand, the need for informed, committed, and proficient technicians increased. This is what ultimately lead Rick back to the family business!
Weidenfeller Refrigeration continues to grow rapidly. When Rick isn’t on a service call or doing an installation, he’s at the shop refurbishing equipment. He completes continuing education on commercial refrigeration to remain sharp and knowledgeable about the business! Just like Rick following in his father’s footsteps, Rick’s children are following in his. His family is actively involved in the day-to-day operation of Weidenfeller Refrigeration.
Weidenfeller Refrigeration is a family-owned and operated business. Not only are they a family, but their customers are too!

Rick provides personal service and timely repairs. I use a lot of refrigeration in my business and trust Rick to maintain it. He is fair and values the relationship side of the business as well. I have also purchased numerous freezers from him that have saved me thousands over buying new.
Rick has been a great resource for me in figuring out the changing refrigeration needs of my small business. He always has a good selection of units, great service, and straight, honest answers. And he delivers!
We’ve worked with rick for years at UCOM and over that time he has been amazing. He is always prompt when we have issues and does great work. We highly recommend him and the Freezer Depot.
I have been doing business with this company for over 3 years. They service all of my coolers every 6 months or so to make sure they are working properly. I have bought 3 coolers over the years some new and some used. The level of service and promptness to service calls is top notch. Great family owned company to work with!
Rick and Tammy, we are so glad to hear that you like our pork! You are more than welcome to give us an order and we will have it ready whenever you can make it down. It was great meeting you both and the freezer runs great! We just love it and I know the customers like being able to pick out what they want, helps with compulsive buying too! LOL. It looks so nice full of pork! Blessings to you both as well and we hope you have a wonderful and safe Thanksgiving. 🙂
The Freezer Depot provided me a top of the line Master Bilt freezer in great condition at an amazing price. I saved thousands of dollars! Best of all, I was given excellent service and support. I’ll never buy a new freezer again!
Thank you for your great service. We struggled with our freezer not working correctly until you came and figured out we had a couple of issues that needed corrected with the unit. The unit is working fine now. Thank you.
Buying through the internet is often a tentative experience at best but with Rick and The Freezer Depot it was pure pleasure. Initially, I was shopping for a two door freezer and two door cooler but then decided on getting three door units. Rick was informative with the answers to my questions and made recommendations when asked. He made my purchase extremely comfortable and easy. The units I purchased needed to travel to Fairbanks, Alaska and Rick did an excellent job packing them to ensure their safe arrival. They are an excellent addition to our store and are helping to increase sales. You will be my first choice with future needs. Thank You, Rick.
I just received a new Migali Mega Top prep table / cooler from The Freezer Depot. I saved over 20% off of the traditional brand names and like this unit better than the (2) named brand units I currently have in my kitchen. This new unit is awesome!
We have been using Rick and his son from the Freezer Depot for several years now. They handle everything form our preventative maintenance, new and used equipment sales, to warranty work and repair work. Equipment never seems to fail at a “good” time and we have always had a quick response and work completed at a fair rate.
