Rep Appointments

Kitchen Brains has added three rep firms to further cover the needs of its customer base. Elevation, based in Centennial, Colo., will cover its home state as well as Arizona, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming, and parts of Texas from its offices in those states. Pecinka Ferri Associates will represent Kitchen Brains in the greater New York Metro area including New York (Poughkeepsie and south), New Jersey (north of Trenton), and Connecticut (Fairfield County). Schmid Dewland Associates will provide customer service in Delaware, New Jersey, and eastern Pennsylvania.


Zink Foodservice, based in Lisle, Ill., has expanded its sales team with the addition of Heather Kartholl as a Territory Manager for tabletop and smallwares in the Northwest region. The Chicago native will focus primarily on the city’s downtown market. Kartholl’s 12-year career in the hospitality industry began at Bally’s Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas, and continued with a role onboard Norwegian Cruise Lines before she took a job in New York as an event and private dining sales manager for Spirit Cruises and worked at restaurants in Rockefeller Center and Times Square.
