First job in the business? Making croutons.
What do you like best about the industry? I’ve always loved the friendliness and comradery of our industry and I just happen to love food!
What can the industry do better? That’s a tough one – we think our industry is in great shape, with no glaring issues.
A memorable career moment? We made our initial batch of croutons in 1988 and we successfully placed them in several stores on day one. Three business days later, we listened to a message on our answering machine. It was one of our retailers telling us that they’d sold out! It was one of the most exciting memories in my career.
