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.”

Sprecher’s Donates to RCS Trailside Park
Sprecher’s Restaurant and Pub began a Non-Profit of the Month program this year to make a difference in the Sheboygan community. Sprecher’s selected RCS Empowers, Inc. to be their non-profit for the month of August. Sprecher’s presented RCS President, Martha VandeLeest with a $950 donation to the RCS Trailside Park. The amount was a portion of their August 15 receipts on “RCS Day” at Sprecher’s.
RCS Empowers Inc. plans to take underutilized RCS land on both sides of the Shoreland 400 Rail Trail (public bike path) and establish an attractive handicap accessible green space. “The RCS Trailside Park will be open to the public, RCS participants and staff,” said RCS President, Martha VandeLeest. “Our vision is for the park to be a welcoming and friendly space where individuals can stop to picnic, socialize or just take a break and enjoy the outdoors.” The park location will expand outdoor activity opportunities for those with mobility concerns in Sheboygan County.
The RCS Trailside Park will have permanently installed benches, tables, planters, waste receptacles, and landscaping. Construction of the RCS Trailside Park is planned to begin in fall of 2017 with completion by summer of 2018. To learn more about this barrier-free community-friendly space for the community to enjoy for many years to come or to donate a memorial gift to this exciting project, contact Monica Senkbeil at 920-458-8261.
