Keep It Cold business comes to Corpus Christi

When Larry Klein was questioned why he decided to bring his California-based cold storage business to Corpus Christi, he said it was for the people.

“I’m here for the people,” Klein said to a crowd. “From the moment I got to Corpus, I’ve been called ‘sugar,’ ‘honey,’ ‘darling’ and ‘sir.’ That does not happen in LA.”

The business, which local leaders unveiled with a ribbon-cutting on Friday, is set to manufacture refrigerator and freezer trailers from a site near the Corpus Christi International Airport. 

Klein started his rental business in January 2020. Two months later, Keep It Cold was shut down, and it remained that way for two years.

Fortunately, he received a call from Corpus Christi to provide storage units to hold COVID-19 vaccines when the city was a vaccination hub during the pandemic.

Larry Klein, CEO and founder of Keep It Cold, speaks to attendees at a press conference Friday, May 6, 2022.

“Some of the very first trailers we had were from Larry,” Nueces County Judge Barbara Canales said. “That’s why it meant so much to be here today and welcome him with open arms.”

The new dealership will uphold Keep It Cold’s cold storage solutions, manufacturing, rentals and sales for hospitals, first responders and area businesses including industrial, seasonal, temporary and long-term storage demands and transportation needs.
