Applegate Foodservice

Blake grew up in rural Nebraska and fell in love with the Foodservice industry working as a bus boy at age 14. After graduating college in 2005, Blake has held various Foodservice sales and marketing positions with Hormel Foods in Colorado, Florida, Ohio, and Minnesota. Today he works as the Foodservice National Sales Manager for Applegate, a brand operating in the non-conventional meat space. He lives in southern Minnesota with his wife and two children. Blake considers himself a conscious carnivore...which only matters because it helps him decide where to eat!
