FORT SMITH, Ark. (June 5, 2015) - This week at the 1st Annual Cane’s Partnership Summit, Raising Cane’s honored OK Foods with the 2015 Supplier of the Year Award. Trent Goins, CEO; Randy Meyers, senior vice president of sales; and Shane Calhoun, vice president of quality assurance, accepted the award on behalf of OK Foods.
“It is truly an honor for OK Foods to receive this award, but more importantly this shows the dedication and teamwork of our employees,” said Goins.
For more than 70 years, OK Foods has built its business on a practical philosophy: keeping it simple. As a vertically integrated chicken producer, OK Foods controls its processes from start to finish, including a closely supervised and supported network of family farms and more than 800,000 feet of modern processing facilities.
“Raising Cane’s continues to grow at a rapid rate due to its excellent food quality and its unique focus on customer satisfaction,” said Goins. “OK Foods is proud to supply its high-quality poultry products to Raising Cane’s and looks forward to continuing its relationship with Raising Cane’s as they expand across the U.S.”
