Jared Pfeifer has joined Foodservice News as its first full-time publisher. Foodservice News is the news and information source for the foodservice community.
Pfiefer was Publisher, then Group Publisher for Grand View Outdoor overseeing both consumer (Bowhunting World) and B2B (Archery Business) brands in the outdoor market. Even though most of his recent experience has been in the outdoor market, he does have an affinity for the foodservice industry. “In high school I sold knives door-to-door,” he says, laughing.
In addition to the print product, Pfiefer will be looking for ways to increase the digital footprint for Foodservice News, adding new opportunities to help boost advertisers’ digital presence, through web banners, email offerings, social media and “native content.”
Married with two young children, Pfiefer says he doesn’t have time for a lot of hobbies, although he ticked off hunting, work and family. “I’m more excited by this opportunity than I have been in a decade of work,” he says. “Foodservice News already has a terrific team in place, and I look forward to helping grow the brand even further.”
