Shawn McGhee, Owner, Hollywood Feed
Hollywood Feed operates with more than 40 pet stores selling only premium products for dogs and cats throughout Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas and Texas. To handle its busy delivery schedule, the company runs a fleet of Mack Trucks coupled with Great Dane Champion CL trailers.
The Right Combination
When asked why he chose this combination, Hollywood Feed Owner, Shawn McGhee, said, “Oh, come on, we are dog people, what other combination would we choose? A Bulldog (Mack) pulling a Great Dane just doesn’t get any better. Seriously, when we were considering trailers, we knew we needed someone who would be willing to work with us to build custom trailers – and we wanted them made in the USA. Our Great Dane sales representative said his team could help. Great Dane’s engineering team came up with a good solution that allowed us to achieve our desired results.”
Hollywood has spec’d out custom Champion CL’s, which are 42 feet long and 102 inches wide, specified with translucent tops. In addition, the trailers have floating axles fitted with Maxon lift rail gates. For added durability, these trailers are lined with SSL panels along with Great Dane’s exclusive PunctureGuard scuffband to protect the side walls from fork-lift damage.
The Right Image
When it comes to projecting a company image, McGhee said he wants the trailers to be a brand statement as iconic as the legendary brands. He said, “I think our design team exceeded my expectations. We constantly get customers sending us photos of our rigs running down the road or making a delivery so I think that is as good as it gets.”
