I know you have heard of a stockbroker, mortgage broker, and insurance broker, but did you know there are food brokers? Andy Epstein is the co-founder of B&A Food Brokers. B&A has working relationships with Key Operators in every aspect of the food service and retail industry. From large and small food distributors/retailers to airlines, health care institutions, commissaries, manufacturers, cruise lines, restaurants, theme parks, colleges, and even The Board of Education, they provide their Principals with access to the decision-makers.

Andy and his team live in a super competitive market, and they thrive in a commission-based model. Listen to learn how this small-business owner navigates culture, change, and legal agreements!

Fun fact: Andy has a tradition of espresso and Sambuca in the office!
