From employee appreciation gifts, to giveaway prizes, to everyday retail purchases, cooler bags are always a good promotional option.

An increasing number of companies are opting for this type of convenient packaging with good reason. There are many advantages of using cooler bags for business purposes.

What are Cooler Bags?

Cooler bags are high insulation reusable bags with additional features to ensure preservation of food quality and temperature.

These bags provide two major purposes: maintain temperature and prevent excess moisture.

Typically made of a non-woven material, there are layers of insulation on the inside with an option to add even more for extra protection. In order to develop more structure, cooler bags can even be made of heavier materials, such as high density polyester.

In addition, there are many accessories that pair well with cooler bags, such as zippers, snap buttons, velcro, and heat pressed dots.

People love these bags as they create easy and worry-free transport of perishable items and can be used almost anywhere. We’ve found that coolers are ideal for use at restaurants, gourmet food stores, butcher shops, and seafood stores.

Most importantly, they are perfect for those with delivery services.


There are a number of advantages to switching your store’s packaging to cooler bags. Here are our top 5:

  1. Spill-proof food storage – in the unfortunate event that one of your contents spill, you can rest assured that our bags will keep everything inside of it.
  2. Easy clean up – we get it, accidents happen. Grab a napkin and wipe down the inside of your bag and it’s clean. It’s really that simple.
  3. Sustainability – We make our cooler bags with the same materials as our reusable ones. We care about the environment and want to do our part in the fight against single use plastics.
  4. Potential for Reuse – Throw your logo on a cooler bag and let your customers have it. It’s guaranteed that they will reuse it on their next cottage trip or BBQ outing. Talk about long lasting publicity!
  5. Budget friendly – when you look at them, they may look expensive. Although they are high quality, LeKAC manages to keep costs low which ensures a suitable cost for all.
