“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!
