Case Study

City Dining

Choosing the right temperature controlled converters

Adhering to the new Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) regulations in record time


The background 

Operating across London and the surrounding areas, City Dining is a dynamic event catering company offering an extensive range of food and beverage solutions for workplaces, hospitality and private and corporate events.

The challenge

City Dining prides itself on sourcing only the finest ingredients from artisan and accredited suppliers, with due consideration given to quality, provenance and sustainability at all times.

When the time came to source a new refrigerated vehicle that would adhere to the new Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) regulations, it was an easy decision for managing director John Davis to choose his preferred temperature controlled converters.

“From the moment I landed on the CoolKit website I knew I was dealing with an industry-leader. It was easy to find the information I needed and make a quick enquiry to register my interest”

John Davis, Managing Director at City Dining LTD


On the same day I received a call back from an account manager, who spent time to understand our business model and how we would be using the vehicle. This then allowed him to suggest the best solution for our requirements.”

The solution

CoolKit delivered a new Renault Trafic refrigerated van to City Dining London just in time for the ULEZ start date.

The vehicle, offering a payload of 766Kg, had been converted to chiller specification with a GAH refrigeration unit and included high-intensity LED interior lighting, a GRP grey textured anti-slip floor surface.
