Traulsen Donates New Milk Cooler to Boyd Elementary School

Boyd, TEXAS – March 4, 2014 – Traulsen, a leader in the design and manufacture of premium commercial refrigeration equipment, recently donated a new milk cooler to Boyd Independent School District (BISD) for use in the elementary school.

“We wanted to offer support to a small, local school district that could benefit from some of the latest technology to be introduced to the industry,” said Kim Worley, marketing manager for Traulsen. “This product was created after direct feedback from our customers and will enable BISD to continue to meet its mission of providing nutritious meals to students in rural communities.”

The new Traulsen Milk Cooler includes unique design features to meet the needs of K-12 customers. By placing the milk cooler’s refrigeration on top of the unit, Traulsen is able to drop the cabinet closer to the ground. This means the cartons of milk and other beverages are more accessible for younger children.

“I cannot overstate the importance of a milk cooler in our everyday operation,” said Angie King, foodservice director for BISD. “We were using an outdated cooler that the kids weren’t able to reach, and was so small that our staff was constantly reorganizing and restocking. After having the new Traulsen Milk Cooler for a few weeks, we’ve already noticed our lines moving more smoothly. The kids love it! They can reach right in, grab their favorite milk and continue to move through the line. Our staff is not restocking as often, which helps them stay focused on the food and the students.”

In addition to a lower cabinet, the Traulsen Milk Cooler offers several other innovative features designed after customer research, including a sliding-front-door design that helps protect the gasket from everyday wear; 100 percent stainless steel cabinet features for durability; and a top-breathing system that inhales less floor dust and dirt, extending compressor life.
