And the third generation family-owned firm says the services of a modern-day milkman is more than just nostalgia as it aims to double its customer numbers by its one-year anniversary.
McQueens Dairies’ director Ruaraidh McQueen, who is based at the Nottinghamshire depot, said: “Although the clanging of milk bottles at 5am does conjure up historical images of an industry perceived to be in decline, milk delivery is very much an important part of communities.
“While some people may have their milk delivered because of nostalgia, the majority of our customers do it for the convenience of always having milk available in the home or office.
“Everyone is incredibly busy in today’s world and residents are pleasantly surprised when they realise we can offer regular delivery of milk direct to their doorstep.
“They didn’t think the milkman still existed. He does, it’s just a modern-day version!
“What's also been fantastic is the creation of jobs in the region, and as we continue to grow we'll be recruiting additional members of staff to join the team.
“Our brilliant Mansfield team is a fundamental factor in the success we have achieved in the area. In addition, our customers have been very supportive and we’d like to thank them for that.”
McQueens Dairies was founded in 1995 and has its headquarters in Glasgow. The Mansfield depot is the third English base opened by the firm, following on from Warrington and Huddersfield.
The firm has also noticed an increase in office deliveries.
Ruaraidh added: “Businesses see big benefits in milk being on the doorstep first thing in the morning.
“Employees never miss out on their first ‘work’ cup of tea or coffee, keeping morale high, and staff members aren’t using business time to go to the shops.”
