CoolBot: The Walk-In Cooler
On this episode of the Team Flower Podcast, we are talking with Patty Parsons from CoolBot. Patty started the CoolBot business with Ron Khosla who invented the CoolBot in 2007. He was a farmer, and she was a caterer. CoolBot started on a shoestring budget, and both Patty and Ron worked 7 days a week out of their homes for 5 years. As word spread, so did CoolBot's customer base. Now, growers, florists, caterers, brewers, and even hunters in the United States and beyond are all owners of CoolBot.
Join us as we talk about the history of CoolBot as well as how it works and why it is effective. You'll learn about how CoolBot is helpful for florists and how the company prides itself on the sustainability of its product.
Patty shares tips for insulating well, and we discuss various types of containers/rooms that can be converted into a cooler. We are chatting about the importance of knowing who your market is and how to serve them as you meet their need, and what types of new innovations CoolBot is introducing in the future.
