BEAVERTON, OR - Reser's Fine Foods announced the addition to its delivery fleet of 35 new viper red Kenworth medium-duty trucks complete with new graphic wraps on the van bodies.
"These new Kenworth trucks represent a significant investment and we've been ecstatic over their performance," said Dennis Fullan, corporate fleet manager for Reser's at its corporate headquarters in Beaverton, Ore. "With new graphics on the van bodies, these new units have also been getting noticed by our customers."
Reser's Fine Foods Inc., a manufacturer and distributor of refrigerated food products, operates a fleet that includes 55 Kenworth medium duty trucks - 35 of which the company took delivery last year. Among its new Kenworth trucks are 30 Kenworth T270s and five Kenworth T370s. The Kenworth trucks, stationed at Reser's manufacturing and distribution facilities situated throughout the United States, deliver tortillas, potato salad, fresh vegetable salads and other foods to grocery stores, convenience stores, and restaurants.
"Getting these trucks has done a lot to promote driver morale," Fullan said. "It's really shown them that we're committed to the business and to helping them do their jobs more efficiently."
Pat Stamey, a Reser's driver for six years, agrees. "Having this nice Kenworth truck to drive, changes your attitude and makes you feel valued as an employee," Stamey said. "That attitude then gets reflected in the work you do."
