February 2013: DSR of the Month Todd Utley, Southern Foods, Bowling Green, KY

Todd Utley receives AFDR’s DSR of the Month honors for March 2013, and is inducted into the AFDR, DSR Hall of Fame.

Todd began his foodservice career while working his way through college at restaurants learning firsthand the importance of an operator/DSR relationship.  This became something he would eventually develop as he became a DSR with his own customers and potential customers whom he now works with weekly.  While learning from the operator’s side, this Hall of Famer was fortunate to meet some of the DSRs and folks from Southern Foods which led him to being hired as a DSR.

Todd says that he’s learned that getting the “whole team” of Southern Foods involved has made all the difference in reaching his business and personal goals.
