IFMA has provided valuable insights and networking opportunities to FETCO. Several years ago, FETCO embarked on a new "go to market" strategy moving away from being a specialty equipment supplier to being a foodservice organization. From my previous experience with IFMA, I knew that becoming a member would be critical to the successful implementation of the strategy. I use IFMA insights in the development of our annual strategic plan and conferences like COEX and Presidents Conference have helped us establish awareness in the national account arena.
Senior Vice President, Sales and Marketing,
As a manufacturer, we find great value in our partnership with IFMA. It’s almost like the U.S. Olympic team of foodservice, where you are bringing all of the best players, the best talent together, and we’re here to win.
Director of Foodservice Sales,
The fascinating part about IFMA it has this entrepreneurial bend to it and they deliver value. And the value creation to the manufacturers and to the operators, and the connections that they make helps deliver extraordinary value for us as a supplier. I’ve never really seen anything quite like it.

IFMA does a great job of bringing the right people together and creating a platform for growth. That platform enables thought leadership, market research, and countless other benefits. This is an industry that needs to continually recreate itself, and IFMA provides that platform.
Senior Vice President, Marketing & Sales ,
IFMA is where leaders come to lead and shape the industry of the future. It’s an opportunity to engage with leaders across the industry, whether it’s large or small companies, and provides me the opportunity to validate what I’m doing as a leader to take my company to the next level. Having the opportunity to engage in that is priceless.
