To all former colleagues,
Five years ago, Peter Testa gave me an opportunity that I will always be grateful for. He gave me an opportunity to be entrepreneurial and make meaningful contributions to this organization. We have had some great successes as a company and we have moved on from business that was not successful. We have all worked with some challenging individuals in this industry, such as chefs and purchasing directors, all that tested our professionalism and character. I can honestly say that I am a better person in business today than I was when I started working here. Every interaction has provided me with an opportunity to learn and grow.
Personally and professionally, I have learned a great deal from working at Testa. I have created friendships that will last for many years I hope. I have learned the ins and outs of produce food service distribution. Running an organization with 200+ employees and so many moving parts is not an easy task and Peter Testa works so hard every day to support this organization. His dedication and passion for this business is something you do not see often.
I believe that Testa Produce will continue to be a leader in the produce food service distribution business in Chicago. I am confident that our paths will cross again as this industry and city are both very small. I wish nothing but the best for all the hard-working employees here and value you greatly. Please remember that I am always a big fan and supporter of the blue truck, Greener by nature Greener by choice.
Thanks and see you around!
