APRIL 2018 – PepsiCo fleet supervisors, managers and field personnel who attended the soft drink and snack food giant’s Technical Training Summit last month in Arlington, TX took time out from their class schedules to visit with all the vendors who support the Pepsi and Frito-Lay brands. Mickey Truck Bodies was one of the more popular stops on the Arlington Convention Hall exhibit floor.

“This conference is much different than others because it’s focused on distribution of the PepsiCo and Frito Lay brands specifically,” says Tom Arland, Mickey’s Vice President of  Sales. “Our booth was very active because we have a strong relationship with both brands. Our new Lay’s Potato Chips van body, mounted on a Peterbilt truck and on display at the Peterbilt booth, drew a steady crowd throughout the show. Many of the PepsiCo and Frito-Lay employees thoroughly inspected the truck and really liked what they saw.”

Lay’s is one of the marquee brands of PepsiCo’s Frito-Lay division. In addition to the Lay’s Potato Chip truck (pictured), Mickey is also producing bodies for the Tostitos, Lay’s Wavy, Doritos and Ruffles brands. “Mickey Truck Bodies is excited to be building these 30-foot bodies to carry all of the prestigious Frito-Lay brands,” says Tom.

Vendors were challenged to attend the show “with new ideas and products that will support the requirements of PepsiCo into the future,” says Tom. “There was a great deal of interest in the power equipment at the show, particularly our 30-foot van body set-up for product delivery.”

Mickey has been building bodies and trailers for PepsiCo and its bottlers around the world for more than 50 years.
