You breathe in more nitrogen each day than you do oxygen. The air is made up of 78% nitrogen and 21% oxygen. The other 1% is argon for the science buffs.
Liquid nitrogen has a boiling temperature of -321 F and that is why it exists as a gas in our atmosphere. When you pour it out at room temperature the liquid form of nitrogen begins to warm up and boil creating *smoke*. There is a heat transference that occurs and causes any item it makes contact with to freeze! Thus the inspiration for our business name, The Freezing Point.
It is not toxic in any way, but it is very cold so our Nitrogen Baristas wear stylish safety gear including aprons and closed toe shoes.
We also prefer to work in large, open areas to keep the ratio of nitrogen and oxygen in correct balance.
Carolyn founded The Freezing Point inspired by a science lab at The University of Texas at Austin while attending in 2007. With over ten years of experience in the Aerospace, Oil & Gas, and Events Industry Carolyn focuses her time on innovating, networking, and growing her business.
She believes the business can only grow to its potential by training and empowering the team that is its foundation. With one full-time, and about ten part-time employees, many hours of her week are spent developing process improvements while requesting and sharing feedback. Carolyn has blended the art of food entertainment with a corporate leadership mindset. To learn more, please read here.
