From our very first class of 35 Under 35 Honorees—featured in our December Edition—we have Nate Beachy, President at Sutter's Quality Foods. Since the early 1960s, this family-owned business has been bringing local dairy items, orange juice, high quality eggs (that don’t run all over the grill), award winning cheeses and many more quality products to numerous restaurants and markets along Florida’s west coast. 

What's a recent achievement you are most proud of?

As a food distributor, 90 percent of our company's revenue comes from restaurants and hotels which were largely shut down for a good portion of the year. To weather that storm, we did four key things. We trimmed payroll by incorporating rotating shifts to give employees as much work as we could while giving others planned days off. We leveraged our longstanding relationships with our suppliers to pay them back slowly for expired inventory. We maximized our credit with our bank to keep operations going. And, the riskiest of the four, we expanded our territory 10x during the pandemic. I decided I wanted to be aggressive rather than trimming our footprint and scaling down. I have a really great team and they went to work and made it happen.
