KETTLE CHIPS

After arriving at Transformer Tech, and hooking up to one of our dry box trailers, we inquired as to our next assignment. Immediately the information started chirping on the QualComm computer. We would be headed just 4 miles away to Kettle Foods, in Salem, OR to pick up a load of potato chips. Well this certainly was a first for us, and with our appointment only an hour away, we took off to get the trailer loaded.
It was quite the busy place, with trucks coming and going. We checked in and were told we would be called when our dock was ready. Two other TWT trucks pulled in that had also gone to get a trailer at the same place we did. About a half hour after our appointment time, we were called, and into the dock we went. It only took a few minutes for them to have the trailer completely loaded down with these tasty morsels. This particular load is headed to the Grocery Outlet Store in Sacramento, CA for a 5am delivery on Thursday. We are hoping to avoid the heat of LA and be sent to Salinas for a Fresh Express load. Sure would like to keep enjoying the cooler weather a bit longer, as it is predicted to heat up again this week.

Bet you can't eat just one. No wait that is another brand of chips.

Those Salt and Pepper Kettle chips are the best!

You guys seem to spend a lot of time in Portland! (I live 6 miles from the Safeway DC in Clackamas.)
