Wellingborough caterers choose Mercedes-Benz Citan for van fleet

Wellingborough-based Millie’s Café has updated its van fleet with a pair of new Mercedes-Benz vans.

Owner Bryan McCreery took on two Citan 109 CDI BlueEfficiency Compacts, and has already returned to dealer Intercounty Truck & Van with an order for a third, identical vehicle.

“Intercounty Truck & Van is a customer for which we deliver staff lunches and provide corporate catering services,” explained McCreery.

“When we set up our business in 2006 Mercedes-Benz did not offer a van that was the right size for our needs, but the Citan is perfect. We chose the Compact version as it offers enough space for our deliveries but doesn’t tempt our drivers to load up with more than they can sell.”

“Although they are a similar size, the Citans are returning almost double the mpg of our previous vehicles," McCreery continued.

"They’re also well-liked by our staff while the Mercedes-Benz badge helps to get us noticed – business has shot up by around 20% in the areas where they are working.”
