Fort Wayne, IN (September 6, 2018) Tippmann Innovation of Ft. Wayne, IN recently completed a cold chain assessment for WAWA, Inc. one of the nation’s leading convenience store chains. Over the last 60 years, Wawa has developed a reputation for the highest quality products in the country. Ranked as America’s favorite convenience store by a Market Force 2017 survey, they operate over 800 stores along the east coast and Florida.
Nick Pacitti of Tippmann Innovation has a long-standing relationship with the Pennsylvania based company. For the past 20 years both parties have worked together to find solutions to broken links in the cold food chain. This summer Pacitti and the Tippmann Innovation consulting team created a customized process in quantifying cold chain performance for product quality from packaging to store delivery and merchandising.
More importantly, the cold chain assessment has led to a wide array of operating improvements. As the cold chain performs more precisely and well within narrow control limits, opportunities expand for distribution and store delivery improvements. The Tippmann process assures the system works as designed and, as such, provides optimal quality products for consumers, at a much lower cost.
Tippmann Innovation’s consulting team is highly knowledgeable in the development, production, and distribution of perishable foods. The Indiana based cold storage construction company’s extensive experience in cold chain performance bring to the table knowledge and expertise that many processors and distributors do not have. Tippmann Innovation consultants are a valuable asset to companies such as WAWA, INC., who seek to close gaps in the cold chain.
“A well designed cold chain management program takes pressure off margins, while increasing sales and customer loyalty. Over the last decade Tippmann Innovation has saved its clients millions of dollars in annual operating costs through creative designs, improvements, and management within cold chain operations.” – Rob Adams, Tippmann Innovation Partner
