Nothing’s wrong with being the middleman.
(Actually, we like to be called middlepeople)
Randy and Nancy Lindberg are the Co-Founders of Quality Foods Distributing.
In the late 1960’s, Randy’s family acquired a small natural products distributor called Nature’s Best. A few years later, he started working there in the computer room, pulling orders in the warehouse, driving forklifts, and making deliveries. When his father passed, Randy became President of the company. He was twenty-seven years old. And along with an outstanding team, he grew the company into the largest privately-owned wholesaler-distributor in the natural products industry.
After thirty-three successful years in the family business, Randy left the company in 2005. From 2006 to 2009, he was the Western Region President and an Executive Officer for publicly-owned United Natural Foods, Inc., the largest wholesaler-distributor to the natural and organic industry in the United States.
Nancy has a degree in Foods & Nutrition, and worked at Nature’s Best for fifteen years. After more than a decade of visiting Bozeman, she and Randy decided to live there, believing QFD could meet the need for reliable logistics and distribution services in Montana and throughout the Northern Rockies.
“What really excites us,” Randy says, “is working with local producers and businesses in Montana and the Northern Rockies to bring their products to our retail and foodservice customers, and a larger marketplace.” Because there are some really great local products out there, if only they could find a way to your shelves and kitchens!
And, finally, they can. Now that there’s a middleman in the neighborhood.
