Fisher Nut Parent Sees Potential Growth in Sales Channel

John B. Sanfilippo & Son  announced the appointment of Phil Gorski as the company’s business manager focused on the growing club store channel. JBSS, owner of the Fisher brand, was founded in 1922 and is widely recognized as a leading processor, marketer and distributor of shelled and in-shell nuts and snacks. Gorski’s appointment takes place immediately.
Gorski comes to JBSS from PepsiCo, where he was responsible for leading all Quaker - Tropicana - Gatorade product category initiatives at Costco stores. Prior to that, he was the director of sales for TimeWarner at BJ’s Wholesale Club, the nation’s third largest club store chain. 
According to a 2008 Mediamark Research & Intelligence (MRI) report, the weakened economy has been a boon for club stores as budget-conscious shoppers look for bulk deals. In fact, said MRI, traffic at club stores grew faster than the U.S. population last year.
