American Food Systems, Inc.
Purchasing and Procurement


I work with the president, vice president, directors of operation and vendors to procure and purchase quality products for our restaurants. The most rewarding part of my job is the respect and recognition in the industry from my professional peers. I am proud of our ability to establish strong vendor relationships/partnerships to procure quality products at competitive prices. My mentors include my parents that gave me a strong foundation for a good education, good work ethics and respect for others.

In the food industry, the relationships built with select vendor representatives who have been in the business for many years, sharing their knowledge and offering assistance through the everyday opportunities and challenges that are presented.
