Our Team

Like any great company, Buzz is successful thanks to the combined efforts of many great people.  Our approach to finding those great people has not changed over the years.  We work to find smart folks who share our values, understand great customer service and love to eat and learn about food.  The rest seems to take care of itself.

While our big, national competitors make a living being "jacks of all trades, masters of none," we pride ourselves on being true specialists.  Our desire is to help customers make smart decisions around which meat and seafood items make sense for their business, their menus and their customers.  The best compliment that any customer can pay us, and which we're thankful to hear often, is that Buzz has made their business better.  The photos below highlight just a few members of our outstanding staff.  Please click on individual photos to learn more and to make contact with the people who make Buzz great!
