Something Inside of Us Sleeps, The Sleeper Must Awaken

Longtime restaurant few acquire Clover Distribution food stuff business

Andrew and Stephanie Fisher run Clover Distribution in Milwaukee, which delivers an array of specialty foods.

Performing in eating places assisted Andrew and Stephanie Fisher come across each individual other. She’s a baker, he’s a chef.

Like anyone else who has worked in experienced kitchens, they’ve witnessed a ton of ups and downs in excess of the earlier two a long time.

When Andrew read about the homeowners of specialty food stuff distributor Clover Distribution, 2018 S. First St., retiring, he pretty much jokingly requested Stephanie if she wanted to invest in the business enterprise. On Dec. 10, the Fishers formally stepped into their new roles as small business homeowners, delivering spices, olive oils and specialty food items to chefs through southeastern Wisconsin 5 days a week.

Having about a business all through a pandemic has its have problems, but leaning intensely on their individual kitchen backgrounds, the Fishers come to feel uniquely qualified to move into the distribution arena.

Query: How did you get into the foods entire world?

Stephanie: It begun with baking with my relatives when I was a kid. When it arrived time to get a occupation at 16, I found a career at Cookies By Design,  putting together cookie baskets and bouquets. When they experienced an opening for a baker, I fought my way to get that career and never seemed again.
