self-service. These cases rest on sturdy metal stands placed on countertops.
An acrylic case with a 180-degree front enhances the décor

domed containers, cupcake shop owners find success with their countertop
displays. Their delicious treats are displayed in a manner that does them
justice. Customers are impressed by the countertop displays and have a
difficult time resisting buying a cupcake or two.
