Alimentos MAC

Due to its excellent Caribbean location, the Dominican Republic has the presence of different and world-renowned chains of fast food restaurants. This led to the McDonald’s chain of fast food arriving in this country in 1996, initially located in Santo Domingo, capital of the island nation. A year later, taking advantage of the expansion model that […]

Damon Schramm – Bite Squad

Merrill Lynch is bullish on America. So is Bite Squad, but primarily on Middle America—the large towns and smaller cities that don’t so often appear on the radar screens of its bigger competitors. Hence a land of opportunity for a still-young company that’s filling the niche of delivering freshly cooked restaurant meals to customers who […]

Michael Guidry – Cold Spring Brewing Co.

So what came first, the beer or the can? The beer, of course, but without the can it’s not going far, kegs of any size being unwieldly in the grocery store. And as far as bottles go, customers and shippers prefer cans, because chilled aluminum keeps the suds cold and they’re easier to transport. But […]

Tonica Kombucha

This just might be the story about the little engine that could. Almost literally. For just a decade ago, Zoey Shamai was moving one case of empty bottles at a time by bicycle, between a Toronto warehouse and her very congested apartment kitchen, where she was brewing her own take of a unique organic health […]

Drew O’Quinn – Thompson & Little, Inc.

Reputations spread fast in the food service industry. Dealers who provide the means to keep kitchens humming had better be dependable and versatile. One size can’t fit all when it comes to commercial kitchen equipment, layout and design, and custom fabrication. Drew O’Quinn, the personable 38-year-old vice president of Thompson & Little Inc., a third-generation […]

Mike Scholtens – Manchester Pet Supplies

Companion animal may be the preferred term to pet nowadays. Especially by millennials, who make up a most valuable demographic for those in the business of providing the essentials for keeping domesticated critters happy and healthy. Satisfy this very discerning crowd and a company may prosper. As is Manchester Pet Supplies, a Canadian distributor primarily […]

Don Fuller – Culligan by WaterCo

A changing culture has largely rendered archaic that old jingle of yesteryear, “Hey, Culligan Man!” giving way to something less gender-defined. But the good-natured fellow who’s owner and boss of, at last count, 37 of the water-treatment products company’s franchises, may still hear the original line from folks of sufficient longevity, and he’s more than […]

Beth M. Kotran – Ferrero North America

As general counsel for the North American operations of the global confectionery heavyweight Ferrero, Beth M. Kotran has literally achieved—well almost—what she had so aspired to after leaving private practice in 2002. “I was focused on one piece of a bigger pie,” she tells Vanguard from her office in Parsippany, New Jersey. “I wanted to […]

Julie Kinch – Heineken USA

Ten years ago, well into her tenure as chief legal counsel for Heineken USA, Julie Kinch helped launch a company-wide women’s leadership forum. What began with six people in a Chicago conference room has, in the decade since, grown to include more than 120 members from throughout Heineken’s ranks—male and female, millennials and boomers, executives […]

Ron Palmese – Shake Shack

Like many young lawyers in firms, Ron Palmese was mindful of his professional growth being limited by having to concentrate on a specific area of practice and thus not being exposed to the big picture for a client. Much as he enjoyed transactional law, Palmese didn’t feel satisfied enough with his level of involvement in […]
