What keeps you up at night?
Working these crazy schedules, sometimes you are able to just pass out. But most of the time, I’m stuck up at night trying to think of the next big thing. Everything moves so fast in our space, and you can quickly get left behind.
What attracted you to the noncommercial foodservice segment?
Every day is different and I couldn’t think of a better situation for me. It keeps things very exciting.
How do you think the industry will change in the next five years? How do you think that will impact your goals and career?
The industry will change because of people. We’re seeing more educated, more informed and more active customers and employees. To accomplish my goals, I need to make sure I stay on top of those changing markets. I’ve gotten to this point by doing that and will need to continue to be vigilant in that endeavor.
