WHAT DO YOU ENJOY MOST ABOUT YOUR JOB?

I enjoy the creative freedom to cover the multiple walks of life we encounter on a daily basis.

We’ve found a good amount of nostalgia mixed with some of the new is what works best for us and our clientele.

WHAT TROPICAL PRODUCTS DO YOU USE?

We sell a ton of the individually wrapped and bulk candies, chocolate covered raisins/ peanuts, diced dried fruits, dehydrated apples and peaches, and several others we also sell in our break service.

PERSONAL FAVORITE TROPICAL PRODUCT?

Gummy Bears. I have a strange sweet tooth.

WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING ABOUT WORKING WITH TROPICAL?

I worked with Tropical in the last property I worked in and used them for over 10 years. The variety is what made me choose to work with Tropical initially. The dedication to service is what made me choose to work with them again.
