The Dish

Hello 2015

Palmer Foodservice - 01/13/2015

Happy New Year everyone!! We hope you all had a great holiday season and a wonderful New Year's night! 

We have been a little quiet on here recently due the holiday hours and the family gatherings, but its a new year and time to get back to it!! Aren't you excited? We sure are!

This past Friday was our first sales meeting of 2015 and we think it went pretty great! We had a few new lines like Italian Rose and Brakebush Chicken along with some old favorites of ours McCain and Juice Tyme! We also went to school to learn about Bunn maintenance by our guest speaker Chris Wurtzel! 


We had so much fun finding recipes for this months cookbook! We had so many good ideas it was hard to narrow it down! We finally decided on Caribbean Chicken recipes using the Italian Rose Caribbean Rub/Marinade!
