Fairfield, CA — Jelly Belly Candy Co. is honoring Golden Sales Assocs. Ltd., Inc.; Specialty Products, Inc.; and Green Mountain Specialty Foods as its brokers of the year.
“In the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy, Golden Sales President Jeff Katz found himself working from anywhere he could — his car, hotel and powerless home. Despite the adversity, Golden Sales finished the year up more than 20 percent,” Jelly Belly reports. Golden Sales is responsible for Jelly Belly’s sales in the Eastern region.
The company says Specialty Products, which covers the Midwest, “continues to find new accounts that are surprising fits for Jelly Belly. From the traditional to non-traditional, it's this kind of out-of-the-box thinking that has meant new accounts, an increase in sales, and the distinction of winning this award.” Jelly Belly also honored Specialty Products’ Jose Teigeiro with a 25-years-of-service award.
“In 2012 Green Mountain Specialty Foods’ Kregg Flowers continued to grow his territory,” Jelly Belly reports about the Western region broker. “As a result of his dedication to expand the Jelly Belly line in the west, his sales have also consistently grown year upon year.”
The honorees were recognized at Jelly Belly’s annual specialty broker meeting and awarded an engraved glass trophy.
