The FEDA Annual Conference, held in Phoenix last month, took time to celebrate the contributions of its members.
Stephanie Bean, talent acquisition specialist at Ace Mart Restaurant Supply, received the inaugural Spirit of Giving Award for her work with Special Olympics. The award was created in honor of Ray Herrick, former executive vice president of FEDA, who retired in 2017 after 34 years with the association.
FEDA also thanked its outgoing board members, Jonathan Gustafson, Charlie Fusari, Elizabeth Price, and Paul Parr.
Finally, FEDA recognized its longtime members that were celebrating milestones with the association. Companies receiving awards for being 25-year members were Dick’s Restaurant Supply and Rochester Restaurant Supply. Meanwhile, F.G. Schaefer Co. was honored as a 50-year member at the conference.
