🚀 Future Foodservice Procurement ✨

By | Company News, Food for thought | No Comments

 

There was once a case to be made for three quality & pricing levels for foodservice equipment and supplies: the much-vaunted price-value equation.

If you are like most folks, this system provided an easy way to distinguish and fit into an operation.  Just choose between “Good, Better, or Best”

I remember the sales trainer, Fred Herman relating the story of walking in to a client with a large sample case.

The prospect asked “What’s in that case?”
To which Fred replied “I have a splint for a broken leg, but first I gotta find out where you’re hurting!”

Through technology and globalism, today’s specifier has an ever-widening array of choices of products to fulfill a specific need.

What might be the ideal solution for one application – the “Best” might only be “Good” for another.

As rep’s offerings expand to provide multiple products in several categories, we hope to be better able to give good advice on the best product for our clients.

But first we have to find out where you’re hurting!


Please note that Marsal has moved up to Vermont with sister company, Blodgett.  All manufacturing and support will be handled from there.

Giving Thanks

By Ed Pecinka

It is that time of the year. My favorite time of the year, where we take time out of our busy schedules, gather together with family, reflect on our blessings and give thanks.

With the many “new blessings” that we have and will be adding to our line package in the new year, we at Pecinka Ferri are particularly thankful for our staff, who work every day to provide our marketplace with the service and value that they need and expect. We give thanks to our families for their understanding and support throughout the year. We are thankful for our manufacturers, who have entrusted us with representing them and back us with quality products and services. Lastly, we thank our customers, the dealers, consultants, and end users who with all the choices in our industry, continue to make us successful by trusting us with your business.

So now, with this year’s trade shows and buying group conferences behind us, we look toward the holidays. With the upcoming Thanksgiving weekend, followed by our 3rd Annual Pecinka Ferri Holiday Open House on December 7th, we look forward to personally thanking you and wishing you and yours the best of the season.

 


Happy Thanksgiving

🎂 Happy Birthday Pecinka Ferri 🍰

By | Company News, Food for thought | No Comments

“It was 20 years ago today, Sergeant Pepper taught the band to play…”

 

Forty five years ago, in 1972, Messrs. McKeever & Dumbach formed a rep agency in metropolitan New York.  This was to be the antecedent to today’s Pecinka Ferri.

1978 saw the addition of Ed Pecinka Senior, with Junior following in the 80’s.

When I joined the company exactly 25 years ago, at the old IH/M&RS (now the HX Show), we were based in Mineola, NY and had only five employees.

Joe Ferri Jr. came on board in 2012. We are now up to 10 employees and are growing.

Today’s iteration is decidedly a different operation, but still adheres closely to our founder’s values.

In the next few weeks we will again be redefining our agency and what being a foodservice rep means to the marketplace.

We are proud to have our channel partners join us on this journey.

Happy Birthday, Pecinka Ferri!
