We’re not In the Chicken Business, We’re in the People Business
While it may appear that PFSbrands is in the chicken business, we are actually in the people business. That might not make sense at first glance, but let me explain by starting off with our Core Purpose which is: “To help others become more successful in work and in life.”
Our Mission Statement reads:
“We exist to empower our employees and allow them the opportunity to build their futures by providing all of our customers with consistent, high quality food products at reasonable prices and assisting our retail customers in operating profitable locations.”
First and foremost we are here for our employee owners. It’s all about creating the culture that empowers our employee owners. We have worked incredibly hard to create a culture that allows our employee owners to make their own decisions. One example of this, is that all of our general ledger lines are owned by an employee owner who gets to make their own decisions regarding it. It’s something they don’t take lightly. They strive to be more efficient and thus they improve the company along the way. By allowing our employee owners to have a stake in the outcome, they strive to cut spending, improve sales and become as efficient as possible because they are invested in the bottom-line.
