SMALL BUSINESS MATTERS
In addition to its chorizo,
bratwurst, Polish and
longaniza specialty
sausage, Encore Sausage
Co. makes a full line
of breakfast sausage
links and patties.
In addition to these specialty products,
Encore also makes a full line of breakfast
sausage links and patties.
" When it came to hitting the stage as a
new company, we were old school, " Rick
said. " We visited our potential customers,
shook their hands, and let them try samples.
We were not targeting the accounts that just
wanted something cheap for a week or so.
We wanted a long-term relationship with
people we know and who know us. "
Rick says he is thankful for the life
lessons his father taught him, Nick Jr. and
his sister Donna. He added that he is also
thankful for the former butchers, sausagemakers
and employees from his former
business who came back together to get the
Encore Sausage Co. up and running.
This is truly a family operation from
sales, quality assurance, and all the way
through to operations. And, many of the key
employees from Rick's former business were
part of the company's " encore " and rekindled
their passion for this trade.
You could call it a fast start for a new
company - it's only been a little over five
years since the company took on the new
name, product formulations and plant. Their
products are found nationwide through
74 MEAT+POULTRY | 11.21 | www.meatpoultry.com
a network of distributors. Rick said the
company is giving some consideration
to possible direct sales into the retail
segment soon.
" The bulk of our business is east of the
Mississippi River, but we are now reaching
into Texas, California and the Pacific
Northwest, " he explained.
" I've very much remembered and relied
on my father's 'life lesson' comments about
not trying to be the biggest company...just
the best, " he said. " He always reminded me
that a company has a responsibility to its
employees who have to take care of their
own families. And to him that meant not
being the lowest priced option, but one that
consistently offered quality and fair pricing
in order to exceed customers' expectations
and keep them coming back.
" Then he [Nick Sr.] always added that he
made many mistakes himself, and that we
will make mistakes ourselves as well. But he
warned that if you do not learn from these
mistakes, you will not succeed. I've always
remembered that this life was going to throw
you curve balls, but the key to success is
how you react to those obstacles...because
that is what separates us from the rest - both
as a company and a family. "
