Eagle Express, Refrigerated Delivery Courier

Believe it or not, folks, Christmas is here!


Wait. What? It’s September! Then why does every store have Christmas decorations on display…


Despite what retailers are trying to sell you, it’s not Christmas before it’s Fall. And you know what Fall means around these parts? FOOTBALL!


That’s right. The colors and smells of Fall are all around us! But our refrigerated delivery couriers are not talking about turning leaves and pumpkin spice, though. We’re talking about blue and silver and the smell of a sizzling hot dog on the grill. It’s time to celebrate the kickoff of the fall season with the first tailgate. The first Saturday in September, we get to do just that because it’s National Tailgating Day.


Our refrigerated delivery couriers are just like you. We live in and work right here in DFW, and we love our football. If you’re a little rusty on tailgating treats, or just feel like you need to spice up your pregame menu, then take notes. Our refrigerated delivery couriers are bringing you some fabulous tailgating tricks for enjoying food and friends before watching your favorite team take the field.


Simple is ok- Store buy items when you can. The main fare will be the fun you’ll have with fellow fans.

Portability is key- Think about items that move around well. Your guests will be noshing while walking, sitting in lawn chairs, and cheering for their team.

Freeze water bottles- Frozen water bottles make for great ice. They also will melt in time to stay hydrated with an ice cold beverage before the game.

Plan ahead- Make-ahead sides are best. Just be sure they don’t have perishable ingredients in them like egg or mayo.

Food safety- If salmonella isn’t on your menu (and it shouldn’t be), bring foods wrapped tightly and stored in coolers.

Don’t miss the game- If you have tickets for the game, plan to eat an hour before kickoff. You don’t want to go into the stadium hungry any more than you want to miss the first quarter.

Remember where you parked- Tie helium balloons to your vehicle so friends can find you, and then be sure to jot down your parking position for an easy post-game car hunt.

Consider a post-game tailgate- Why fight the crowds or the traffic on the highway post-game? Instead, invite your pals for a post-game snack.

Stay safe- Observe caution when grilling, as to avoid a fire hazard. Watch the heat exposure. Never drink and drive.

Have fun- Cheer loud for your Cowboys and have an awesome tailgate!


While retailers might have you singing “Jingle Bells” already, don’t forget about one of the greatest seasons that the Lone Star State has to offer: tailgating season! It’s one of our refrigerated delivery couriers’ favorites. After all, we’re the ones who are moving your temperature and time sensitive goods throughout the Metroplex, assuring that your favorite football treats stay stocked in the shelves of your local supermarkets and convenience stores.


Our couriers are trained in FDA standards and have their license from the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission to transport alcoholic beverages. We’re also bonded and insured, bringing you confidence in our transportation team to handle any type of delivery, backed by A-rated insurance providers. It's our commitment to you that your items arrive on time and in perfect condition, or we'll make it right.
