Sanfillipo Produce Co. Inc., Columbus, Ohio, moved into its seventh bay in the Columbus Produce Terminal Market.
The company first moved to the market in August 2004, with two units of 2,000 square feet. Seven years later to the day, it moved into its seventh unit, Jim Sanfillipo said in an e-mail.
“We decided not to participate in this ... recession,” he wrote, “while many of our competitors haven’t changed with the times.”
He said the company’s sales have increased fivefold in the seven years since it moved into the market. He said 90% of its sales are to foodservice customers, and 10% is sold to retailers.
