SOMERSWORTH – Favorite Foods of Somersworth, New Hampshire is a leading regional food distributor. Largely serving local restaurants, Favorite Foods provides everything from groceries to paper and chemicals for their customers. VP of Merchandising Julie Cole, 41, believes that her company does a lot more than distribution. “What sets Favorite Foods apart is our commitment to the success our customers,” she explains. “By integrating sustainability into our business, we’ve added an additional layer of value and support for everyone we do business with.”
Theresa Conn (TC): What do you like most about your job?
Julie Cole (JC): Well, there’s a lot to like! I would say my favorite thing is the impact I can have at a daily basis at Favorite Foods. I interact with so many different people every day: customers, restaurant managers, manufacturers, and our own internal staff. Each interaction is an opportunity to help someone. Take, for example, our Spotlight series; we do promotional work for our customers. Every two weeks, we choose a local restaurant to highlight through radio, online, and print marketing. I love using my advertising skills to help out our clients.
