As I enter my second year at Harbor Foodservice, I am even more excited about our future as the preeminent distributor in our market. The dictionary defines “preeminent” as “surpassing all others; very distinguished in some way”. That’s us! That’s who we strive to be.
We accomplished some great things in 2022: expanded and restructured our street sales team for continued growth, acquired Northwest Foodservice, were awarded the Buffalo Wild Wings business in our market, and made significant strides toward our long-term goal of strong, sustainable financial performance.
2023 is shaping up to be even more impactful. As we celebrate our 100th year serving customers throughout the Northwest, our 2023 Roadmap is full of new challenges and opportunities. At Harbor Foodservice, that means expanding our reach to new geographies in Eastern Washington, Alaska, and the Portland metro area. It means further integration of our Wholesale and Foodservice offerings - a strategic advantage that we need to strengthen. It means living out our vision and values to enhance our position as the preferred employer and business partner in our marketplace.
None of that happens without a team of individuals dedicated to our customers, supportive of one another, and focused on getting better every day. That is who we are. That is what we do. And that is why 2023 is going to be an epic year for Harbor. Welcome to the next 100 years of Fortifying Community and Life Around the Table!
