“Carl enjoys cream cheese on a daily basis but had never tried Greek Cream Cheese before. He said he liked Greek Cream Cheese because of its creamier texture and consistency. Carl works hard to maintain his weight and was pleased when I showed him our products which give him a healthier choice of cream cheese.”

“I presented the owners of Guillermo’s Mexican Restaurant in Palm Desert with the same taste test I gave Carl. They concluded that they like our product better as well, mainly because of the consistency. Guillermo and Bertha were both born and raised in Mexico,and eventually moved to Palm Desert and opened a fine dining restaurant 20 years ago. They are very good family friends of mine, and were very interested in trying our product, and will be buying Greek Cream Cheese over Philadelphia Cream Cheese from now on.”

Guillermo and Bertha give Greek Cream Cheese "two thumbs up" over Philadelphia Cream Cheese.

About Kelly

My name is Kelly Arcand, and I am a junior majoring in supply chain management at Arizona State University. I am currently working as an intern with Franklin Foods. In my spare time I enjoy exercising, watching sports, and hanging out with my friends. One of the most exciting aspects of Franklin Foods, besides the fact that it’s the fastest growing cream cheese company in the world, is that the products contain healthy ingredients that project a healthy lifestyle compatible with mine. I look forward to gaining experience with the retail distribution channel and other aspects of the food industry this internship has to offer.

About Evan

My name is Evan Kurtz, I am now a junior at Arizona State University, W.P Carey school of business. I am majoring in both Finance and Accounting. I love to fish, hunt, off-road, and travel. My freshman summer I was able to travel to Taiwan for an internship opportunity. This also allowed me to travel to Vietnam, and Singapore. I’ve always loved learning new things and new experiences, which is why I love traveling. Traveling has allowed me to experience the world, and all of its different types of foods. I hope to share some of the interesting recipes that I gathered along the way and uses with Greek cream cheese.
