Gate2Plate opens an office in San Diego to serve their West Coast buyers and clients.
Coming from a family that has owned successful restaurants for over 30 years, Brian learned the love of quality cuisine at a very early age. This gave him a penchant for food marketing when he started his career at three major international advertising agencies in Chicago working with: The Kroger Company, “Pork. The Other White Meat”, Robert Mondavi Wines, Idaho Potatoes, Hillshire Farms, Red Lobster, Sam’s Club, and other well-known food and beverage brands.
After several years on Michigan Avenue, Brian left the advertising world and became the Director of Marketing & Business Development for Cedarlane Natural Foods. While working at an actual manufacturing facility, he understands the challenges that it takes to put a final product onto a loading dock. But, with his background in strategy and branding, the item flows seamlessly from the "gate" to the ultimate consumer's plate.
