commercial or residential refrigerator?

We need a new fridge and of course there are two schools of thought here -
get a new, very well insulated commercial fridge to replace our old noisy
but capacious commercial fridge, or buy one or two very large residential
fridges. I searched in the archives; the most recent thread on this topic
that I found is from 2014 and rather brief, and I wonder if anyone has
anything more recent to report.

Our major size constraint is that we often need to be able to put 1 or 2
full-size sheet pans in the fridge and/or one or two giant metal bowls
while prepping for dinner, as our meal attendance is often 45-55 people. We
have a separate under-counter freezer, which is fine for us.

Re commercial fridges, does anyone know of a relatively quiet model that is
also energy efficient? (The unicorn of CH fridges....)

Re residential fridges, I know a number of communities have opted for one
or two of these. If that's what you have, could you please answer these
  -Approximately how many diners do you typically cook dinner for?
  -Can you put full-size sheet pans inside?
  -What do you like and not like about your fridge(s)?
  -Is it inconvenient to have 2 separate fridges, if that's what you have?
  -What brand and model is it?
  -What year did you get it?

Thank you very much?
