Dan Schumacher
Business Development

Dan began working at Buzz in 2020 after 27 years in the wholesale seafood and meat industry. Dan, his better half Devenee, and their Jack Russel Terriers moved to West Virginia from Pittsburgh. If you're looking for a Steelers fan... he is your guy! Away from city life, Dan keeps bees, has a garden, and just planted Christmas trees!

Favorite Part of Your Job: It's ever changing. It's not like selling windows. The beef market changes all the time and seafood is often hunted. Availability changes daily. 

Favorite Cut of Meat: Boneless Ribeye

Favorite Side Dish: Do jumbo lump crabcakes qualify?

Best Concert You've Attended: I've seen Metallica 35 times each one as good as the last, but seeing Barry Gibb in 2014 tops my list. 

Most Surprising Fact About You: I'm a pretty good bowler. I have five 300-point games under my belt
