The stars align for Laura and Halo Healthy Kitchen as she welcomes a Mercedes-Benz Citan to her prospering Health Food Business!
In today’s busy world, people are forever being pushed to manage life at home, manage life at work and take care of themselves in the process. Unfortunately, looking after our health often plays second fiddle. The thought of chopping, preparing, cooking the foods we know serve our health ten-fold has been replaced by take away meals and sugary snacks.
Family woman, Laura Harbinson has sharpened her knives and is prepared to make change with her new business, Halo Healthy Kitchen who plan, prepare and deliver calorie conscious meals to homes and businesses across Greater Belfast. Each tasty meal is prepared fresh, using locally sourced ingredients and come stamped with individual labels outlining its compilation of carbohydrates, fats and protein.
Laura has always been passionate about cooking, often the go-to girl for preparing food for social events and making time to experiment with healthier versions of family favourites. After Laura’s maternity she made the courageous decision to leave her previous role as a successful sales manager, to fulfil her dream of self-employment that could fit around her family life.
In January 2018, Halo Healthy Kitchen began trading with Laura managing everything from customer orders, social media, cooking and delivering. Fast forward, 12 months and Halo employs 4 full time staff members, responsible for almost 2000 meals per week.
Mercedes-Benz Citan– the perfect partner
Halo Healthy Kitchen soon outgrew its capacity to deliver its healthy meals to its growing client base. “We were at such a growing rate, and all the meals need to be delivered at the correct temperature which left us with a 2-hour window from we left Halo”.
Laura paid a visit to MBNI Truck & Van where she purchased a Mercedes-Benz Citan 109 CDI with an overnight fridge to help chill and deliver her products. The Citan is an inner-city van with excellent fuel efficiency making it a perfect fit for Halo. Halo’s meal plans are now delivered across Greater Belfast. The Citan boasts a spacious interior cab with a compact, refined body, perfect for business owners and tradesmen manoeuvring in and around the congested streets of Belfast and beyond, making it the perfect fit for Laura and Halo Healthy Kitchen.
Why did you choose Mercedes-Benz?
“The customer service. We had shopped around and were misled to try and force a sale. We spoke to Paul at Mercedes-Benz and he secured a deal the same day. He was honest, upfront and recommended a van which best suited our needs. The option to upgrade mid-contract was also appealing.” Laura, now feels she can manage her business more efficiently, deliver a much better service whilst having peace of mind with a full Mercedes-Benz service package.
MBNI Truck & Van are committed to driving Northern Ireland’s businesses forward with a portfolio of industry leading commercial vehicles way ahead of their time. We keep business moving!
