Krier Foods Partners with RCS Business Services
Senior leaders of Jolly Good sat in their offices at Krier Foods brainstorming how to get their product hand packaged with literally no extra hands to help at their facility. The labor shortage is real and has affected many local Sheboygan County businesses. John Rassel, President of Krier Foods, heard one of his staff mention a name he was not familiar with, RCS Empowers, Inc. “I told my employee I was not familiar with RCS and could she tell me a little more about the business,” said Rassel. “The conversation ended with me contacting Debbie Felde, RCS Subcontract and Fulfillment Production Manager,” I explained our dilemma to Debbie, and she assured me that it was a job RCS could do in an efficient, cost-effective and timely manner. After meeting to determine what our expectations were, Debbie promptly sent back a quote that worked for us, and the Jolly Good product was sent to RCS to be packaged.
The retro brand wanted specialty mixed packs for their customers, and just like the original brand, it needed to be done the old-fashioned way. “In a world focused on automation, somethings need special care, which can only be done by a real person,” said Rassel. “Krier Foods is proud to partner with RCS, knowing that the work provided is helping local individuals gain valuable work experience to empower them and reach their goals.”
“RCS Empowers, Inc. is a hidden gem that has been a valuable resource for Krier Foods. As an organization, we struggle to find good workers and allocate space for short-term projects. RCS provided the labor and space so we could continue with production. The Jolly Good and RCS partnership not only helped our organization meet their labor needs promptly, but the work we provided helped teach valuable work skills to RCS participants. This was a win-win situation for both of our organizations,” said Rassel. “I would recommend RCS business services to any business that wants to stay focused on their growth and needs a job completed on time.”
