Greg and Drew Yancey represent the 3rd and 4th generations of leadership of Yancey's Food Service - a family-owned Northern Colorado enterprise that began in 1940 and sold to FSA in 2012.   Greg served as CEO and Drew as Director of Strategy at the time of exit, and Drew stayed on as President of a spin-off enterprise not included in the sale.  Greg currently serves as full-time Grandfather/Husband and part-time Pastor at Mountain View Community Church.  Drew is an Advisor at InCite Performance Group in Fort Collins and is also a LoCo Facilitator - you can learn more about Drew here on the LoCo Think Tank website.   

Greg started working in the company while in Junior High, and never worked outside the family enterprise - leaving college to join the leadership team as General Manager at the age of 21 in 1980.   Drew also joined the company at a young age, and was highly involved in journey toward finding a mutually beneficial exit partnership.  This episode pulls back the curtain on the food distribution industry, revealing secrets of growth through building strong relationships and a focus on customer service.   Greg and Drew share stories of business successes and failures, and the learnings found in both.
