A Favorite Tradition Keeps the Roscoe Work Family Coming Together Year after Year

Roscoe Service Supervisor Bob Olivera was astounded at the turnout when he entered the restaurant for his 20-year work anniversary celebration recently

But it’s a Roscoe tradition; our 20-Year-Club members return year after year. Long after they’ve retired from the company, they return to help celebrate the new members of the club.

“I couldn’t believe it when I saw it,” said Olivera. “People who retired 20 years ago still come to the dinner. Once you get inducted, it is a lifetime thing. We will all be there next year with the next bunch of buddies.”

Route Service Representatives and Roscoe Customers are Hard to Separate

If it were up to Roscoe customers many of our long-serving route service representatives would probably never be able to look forward to a well-earned retirement.

Last year marked the retirement of two such representatives, known for their dedication, kindness and awesome customer service over a combined tenure of nearly four decades.

Terry Phillips retired after 23 years at Roscoe and Bobby Jackson retired after more than 15 years. Over the years, their customers grew to love them, and it goes without saying that their replacements have big jobs ahead of them.

They wanted to fill a gap in what they recognized as a fast-growing, niche market in an increasingly industrialized Chicago. Not only were they determined to improve the lives and businesses of their customers, they sought to build a company culture of excellence.

Today, 98 years later, we are celebrating the team members and customers who have helped keep their vision going for nearly a century, even as the industry has undergone a dramatic consolidation.

Two New Roscoe 20-Year Club Inductees

Two New Roscoe 20-Year Club Inductees

This year, The Roscoe Company will recognize two employees that have been with us for 20 years: Russell Burt and Andrew Nutall. Both are route service representatives (RSRs) and we interviewed them to learn about their Roscoe experience and why they’re still with us after two decades.

Russell Burt

Russell’s first experience with The Roscoe Company came early: when he was about nine years old, he rode along on a delivery route with Fred Shaw and Danny Kendrick, two long-time RSRs. Russell’s mom was an executive secretary and served the company for 35 years, so this was a “bring your …
