Episode 7, NoWaterBath – conversation with Billy Marchal, NEICRA 2016, about his HOT New Product

This past November, at the fall NEICRA 2016 convention in Newport, Rhode Island, I had the pleasure to meet Billy Marchal, owner of the Bluffton Dairy Freeze in Bluffton, Ohio, and owner of the new and exciting company NOWATERBATH.com.


Billy and I had a few minutes, before the trade show started, to talk.  Billy was setting up his booth displaying the NOWATERBATH thermal pads and I was setting up my ice cream cart from C. Nelson, Billy showed me his water saving and time saving, no mess – no rusty containers to clean, thermal heat pads.

Billy Marchal, owns and operates his own shop, Bluffton Dairy Freeze, he specks from experience.

I trust you enjoyed listening to Billy as much as i enjoyed learning about this really great new product. If I can help you, please, call me anytime.  George Dunlap 614-378-8466
