Why do you enjoy working with Pacific Gourmet?:
“The customer service is top notch! I’ve been fortunate to have amazing reps since I started working with Pacific Gourmet in 2002. They always come with some new and exciting products to keep ideas fresh. And if they didn’t know anything off the top of their head, they always find out and get back to me right away.”
