We are North American Meats and More. For more than two decades, our East Coast branch has provided exceptional quality products to the New York metro foodservice market while our Seattle office has led the charge on marketing, retail, and ecommerce campaigns. And now we’re moving into the Seattle foodservice market and hiring our first West Coast sales rep!
Our portfolio is very meat-centric. We sell a full range of specialty meats and artisanal products to some of the finest restaurants and retailers in the country. And because we import most of the products in our portfolio ourselves, we’re able to cut out typical middle-man costs and offer incredible product quality at highly competitive prices.
We are importers, distributors, and purveyors of specialty foods, and we’re looking for a salesperson to lead the charge as we break into the Seattle foodservice market! We're offering $50,000 - $150,000, plus health benefits, paid time off, and a challenging, rewarding work environment.
Are you an enthusiastic sales person with foodservice experience who understands the factors that drive purchasing decisions?
Are you ready to engage with restaurants, serve as a brand ambassador for our exciting selection of specialty meat programs, and act as a partner to chefs? Join our team!
We're looking for someone with food knowledge (especially of meat/butchery), and experience in both sales and foodservice – someone who understands and can connect with chefs.
We have active and sophisticated marketing campaigns to drive leads to you via direct marketing, trade shows, and digital activities. Your job will be to build relationships, anticipate needs, and crack open accounts!
The successful candidate will have most of these qualities:
- 2-3 years of relevant sales experience, preferably in foodservice or meat.
- Several years of experience working in a professional kitchen environment.
- A firm, demonstrated understanding of restaurant buying needs, budgeting, and menu development.
- Experience with business development and managing customer relationships.
