Coffaro’s Baking Company
1989 to 2012
As founder, President and CEO of Coffaro Baking Company (CBC), I was responsible for the day to day operations and morale of the company.
Like so many small business owners, I wore many hats, but I was most proficient in managing the information of the company, product development, and sales and marketing. Using Mas90 and Sage100 accounting and management software, I organized and managed costs in every department, from the front office to back, including production, warehouse and shipping operations. I also was instrumental in setting up each department and training personal in Lean Manufacturing Principals and creating a working HACCP program.
With over 27 years’ experience in the specialty food industry and multiple products distributed nationwide, I have worked with major retailers like Costco Wholesale, Wholefoods NW, Starbucks Coffee Company, Tuesday Morning, Cost Plus World Markets, Ross Stores and the Marmax Group (Marshalls, TJMaxx, Homegoods)
