Industrial Chiller Rentals for Small Business During Coronavirus

How Industrial Chillers Can Benefit Independent Food Producers

empty shelves

Consumers are stocking up in response to the COVID-19 crisis. But shoppers entering both supermarkets and small independent grocery stores across the country are finding shelves empty.

Sometimes the cause is a supply chain problem, but often, in the case of meat, produce, and frozen items, the store simply doesn’t have enough cold storage space to maintain the level of back-stock needed to meet unprecedented demand.

There is plenty of food in the country as this New York Times report details. But when stores can’t keep up with demand, shoppers react to the empty shelves with more panic buying. Empty shelves, as every retailer knows, mean lost opportunity for sales.

Enter the concept of “Curbside Cold Storage“.

A Simple Solution for Supermarkets and Neighborhood Grocery Stores – Curbside Chillers

With an increased demand for food from grocery stores and meat markets, the concept of, “Curbside Cold Storage” is becoming a popular option. Renting cold storage units makes it possible keep store coolers stocked with product during this time of heavy demand. Renting units is an affordable way to increase storage space anytime, but the ability to rent is especially important when the need may be only temporary.

Curbside Cold Storage Unit Rentals Can Increase Profits

A store whose display coolers are always fully stocked is appreciated by customers. Knowing they can find what they need whenever they stop by is a feature that keeps them coming back. During these days of high demand, and resulting empty shelves, shoppers are even more appreciative of the ability to find the products they are seeking at the first store they visit.

For customer service and the interest of profit it simply makes sense to rent cold storage chillers for curbside storage in order to sell as much product as possible during this high demand time.
