Portable Cold Storage Applications – Convenience Stores & Restaurants
It can be extremely difficult in today’s retail market when you do not have a lot of money to gain an edge. You may have some savings, but you want to use that cash to invest where it counts. In the meantime, your competitors are getting ahead while you are scraping together pennies to continue doing business. Of course, in retail businesses like convenience stores, the logic follows that the more you can buy in bulk; the more money you make.
The big warehouse retailers and local distributors make it possible to buy non-refrigerated items in bulk. On the other hand, buying perishable items in bulk can be difficult if you don’t have the additional cold storage space available. Would you benefit from additional on-site cold storage if you were able to buy fresh, refrigerated and frozen items in bulk? Being able to do so might help give you that competitive edge you are looking for. Great Location Without Refrigerated Space
One of the common reasons that people need a portable cold storage unit is due to the lack of interior cooler or freezer space. In many cases a convenience store or restaurant are not built with an adequate amount of cold storage space. Our refrigerated containers and walk in coolers sit directly on the ground and can go behind or next to your building for easy access to your cold items.
A Parking Space Becomes a Refrigerated Storage Unit
Our 20’ refrigerated containers, 20’ walk in coolers and 20’ walk in freezers will fit in a standard parking space. You can turn that unused parking space in the alley into something profitable for your business. We have many different options to choose from, all of which are electric and sit directly on the ground.
Having the additional cold storage on-site allows you to buy in bulk. A good example is a restaurant that wants to start offering game meats on the menu. By using portable walk-in coolers or freezers, you now have the room to store seasonal meats.
Delivery or Ordering Overflow Issues
Deliveries don’t always arrive when scheduled and ordering mishaps sometimes happen. No matter how careful you are, there are instances when you have more inventory than you are able to handle. Refrigerated containers and portable walk in freezers are definitely the solution in these kinds of situations. Using the unit as a backup will certainly save you money; and it will keep frozen or refrigerated products from winding up in the dumpster.
All Electric Refrigeration
All of our refrigerated containers, portable walk in coolers and freezers are electric. We have different options depending on the type of power you have available on-site. They are environmentally friendly and much quieter than the noisy diesel trailers and trucks. There are no engine run fees or diesel fuel necessary when renting our electric units. The cost savings are substantial. The money you save will ultimately turn into a profit for your business.
