About Robert

Since I started working at Schenck Foods in 2014, I have worked in multiple departments within the company.  Positions held include warehouse, town delivery driver, customer service and sales.  My goal when I started at Schenck Foods was to become a sales representative.

After one year, I became a relief sales representative, where I gained product knowledge and a better understanding of the foodservice industry.

In 2016, I began managing my own route. My route covers a variety of different businesses ranging from Strasburg and all the way down the Shenandoah Valley to Harrisonburg, VA.

The most fulfilling part of my job is maximizing the success of my customers.  I understand how competitive the food industry can be, and I want to help each of my customers by offering menu suggestions, better pricing and a close partnership.
