By Shifting His Business Model Overnight, This CEO Saved His Food Service Business

On today’s show, we welcome Kirk Halpern who is the Founder & CEO of locally based Farmers & Fishermen Purveyors. Originally founded in July 2019, Farmers & Fishermen serviced local chef owned and operated restaurants with the finest meat and seafood products. Their customers read like a who’s who list and Halpern’s decision to add a home delivery focus proved to be a welcomed and needed Service during the pandemic.

Overnight, Halpern shifted his focus from restaurant delivery to include home delivery for customers social distancing. He figured out a way to keep his employees at work while also helping farmers and fishermen. Consumers can now receive top quality fresh food ranging from steaks to chicken and seafood, plus artisan breads, eggs, dairy and more. His efforts have helped the community and kept his team employed, a successful formula responding to challenging times.
