NORTH SALT LAKE, Utah -- Convenience store chain Maverik Stores Inc. named Lettieri's Inc., a Shakopee, Minn.-based manufacturer of convenient foods, Manufacturer of the Year.
According to company officials, Lettieri's was selected for the significant impact it made on growing Maverik's business through its sheer volume and variety of products. Maverik carries a number of Lettieri's items in its approximately 170 convenience stores throughout seven western states.
“Lettieri's has worked hard to accommodate our needs with regard to the breakfast category and was able to come up with a solution that was very innovative,” said Maverik's director of foodservice Curtis Watson. “Lettieri's has continued to work closely with our staff on other food service projects and promotions that have helped Maverik continue to grow while bringing great-tasting products to our customers.”
“We are very proud of this award,” said Lettieri's senior vice president of sales Greg Dornbach. “While we believe we're the 'Manufacturer of the Year' every year, it's very gratifying to be acknowledged for our efforts. Maverik is a great company and we're proud of our partnership with them.”
Dornbach attributed Lettieri's success, in large part, to building a portfolio of food products that appeal across every daypart and appetite. Lettieri's products are currently represented in more than 30,000 convenience stores throughout the United States.
