Dining outside the home in the Tampa Bay region offers a lot of
as far as cuisine and location. Whether it's Thai food in a strip mall
family restaurant, meat-and-potatoes at a stand-alone chain eatery or
institutional fare at a hospital or school, someone has to transport the
food from market to table and that's what the professionals who work
Foodservice, Inc. do for their customers.
Three of the national food supply company's 60 distribution centers
are in Tampa, Lakeland and Clearwater.
Marilisa Henderson, a recruiter at the Tampa office, says fulfilling the appetites of Tampa Bay region gourmands requires
hiring people who can select the best food products, fulfill and manage
sales orders and deliver the goods.
"We have an ongoing need for salespeople and drivers," she told an
audience of job seekers during a networking event at Tampa Bay WorkForce Alliance.
Henderson says she also sometimes has openings for IT professionals and
people who can provide financial analysis reports.
If there's a corporate creed that employees of U.S. Foodservice work
by, it would probably be "go beyond the plate." Company spokesperson
Christina Koliopoulos cites that as a commitment to communities as well
"We do much more than deliver the groceries and each of our employees
plays a critical role in protecting the safety of the food supply," she
"We are also pasionate about giving back to our community. For
example, the Tampa division was recently awarded recognition by Feeding
America of Tampa Bay for its dedicated support in the fight to end
hunger in West Central Florida."
