Veg Fresh Farms National Foodservice Sales Team Welcomes New Hires
CORONA, CA - Veg Fresh Farms is welcoming Tyler Lance and David Figueroa to its National Foodservice sales team this summer, as the company enters its 30th year of business in 2019.
Lance will be part of the Sales Management team. In his role, Lance will develop Veg Fresh’s roster of notable foodservice customers.
Figueroa, whose role will be that of Business Development, has decades in the industry, and brings experience as a previous member of PMA Foodservice's Board of Directors and former co-chairman of FPFC SoCal Food Service Committee.
“Joe Marchese has built the National Foodservice Sales division at Veg Fresh Farms from the ground up, and we couldn’t be more proud of what he has accomplished since starting this segment of our business in 1994,” General Partner Mark Widder said. “This team has grown in recent years to now include my son Clay Widder and Dan Floyd. Having Tyler and David to round out this group is a tremendous asset to our business.”
According to a press release, the company’s foodservice division has built a thriving business unit that services 50 distribution centers in 36 states for over 12 national quick-service concepts throughout the U.S. Vertically-aligned partnerships with growers combined with strategic sourcing in the U.S. and Mexico allow the company to offer a year-round supply to its foodservice customers. The company is able to ship out of produce facilities that are closer to customers for fresher product and on-time delivery, thanks to its long-term relationships with regional partners.
