Tundra Transfer’s first ever warehouse was Annette and Peter’s garage on Stevens Crescent. It has since evolved into a shop that houses Yellowknife’s best selection of loose leaf teas, gourmet coffees and a myriad of products to concoct your unique, specialized hot beverages!
We presently boast a 12000 sq ft warehouse at 325 Old Airport Road that is home to over 1300 restaurant quality food, beverage and support supplies for a hotel, restaurant, catering company or corporate coffee area to be successful.
Who would have guessed that the dream that began in 1996 with importing 40 bottles of water every 6-8 weeks over 1500 km of unpaved road has birthed into 300 bottles an hour in local production and sales!
Water and coffee has not always been the mainstay of Tundra Transfer Ltd. The little two person company was christened because we were actually in the freight business, moving freight for bus and airlines. In the course of 30 seconds the logo took shape. Annette said, “Tundra Transport,” Peter responded “Tundra Transfer”. Annette said “two tt’s in forward motion with wheels under them”, Peter responded “and propellers”. And thus we moved freight while a husky ran under the bus and our kids played with Lego on the floor.
We welcome you to visit the pride of our efforts, the dedication of our happy-go-lucky staff and the culmination of years of fun and laughter, tears and heartbreak, hopes and prayers.
