CoolKit meets Rink Bakery kneads

Bacup, Lancashire: Rink Bakery has bought in its own freezer van from CoolKit after years using a courier to deliver speciality breads.

“Our freezer van from CoolKit is paying for itself – and more,” says Justin Hardman, bakery manager, Rink Bakery. The Mercedes Sprinter Euro 6 Chassis Cab with an insulated box body caters for four pallets at a time – which holds approximately 8,400 buns.

Previously Rink Bakery spent several thousand pounds  a month on distribution by a third party. Justin said: “We have been thinking about it for several years. The third party was reliable, but price was a factor. We put the investment into a CoolKit van and it’s paying for itself.”
