JOHN KING

Chief Customer Officer / Wine Lover Extraordinaire

 

John King is the founder and Chief Customer Officer at J. Kings Food Service Professionals Inc., one of the country's top independently owned food distributors.  John's background as an entrepreneur reaches back to his childhood when he worked in the family delicatessen. Since its founding in 1974, John has grown the company from a part-time venture into a multi-faceted food service distributor business with more than 350 professionals and annual sales in excess of $175 million. 

 

For over 40 years, John has built his company by helping his customers grow with award winning business-building ideas.  J.Kings offers additional value-added services for clients such as educational business-building seminars.  The J. Kings' Culinary Spectacular receives national recognition as one of the best food shows in the industry and is legendary among food service vendors.  John is instrumental in supporting local farmers and their Farm to Fork movement.


 In that same manner, John’s wine selection team is focused on family owned wineries that produce great wines native to their region.  He applies the same logic of “great people and great product” to his wine division and believes this will insure the success of Grapes & Greens.


When asked about his plans for Grapes and Greens, Mr. King  says “It’s simple , great wine, great people and out of the bottle thinking
