Featured Client – Cameron’s Coffee

Cameron’s Coffee is a Minnesota based premium coffee roaster, with a unique roasting and packing plant made to deliver the freshest and smoothest coffee around.  Focusing on sustainable practices and minimal carbon footprint, they are a leading provider of coffee across the nation.

With all their roasting done locally in Minnesota, and with a boom in coffee drinking, Cameron’s was in need to consolidate and simplify their operations.  They contacted SJF to assist in a three phase move into a larger warehouse.  Three existing coffee storage warehouses were consolidated into the new larger warehouse, along with their display fabrication shop.

Focus on the positive

Today, we’re checking in again with Rhonda Remer.  Rhonda has been in sales for over a year and from time to time, we like to get her perspective on how her journey in material handling sales is coming along.

———–

In July, I was $2,000 shy of the coveted $100,000/month mark in sales.   It would have been my second time to hit the milestone. I was initially a bit deflated but then I decided to step back and look at things from a different perspective.  What have I learned?  How much progress in my new position have I actually made? I will focus on thePreview positive.
