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.

That’s the downside of having such a great …

A 48-Hour Turnaround: How Roscoe Teamwork Drives Success

It was just before the beginning of the new school year when Roscoe received a call from the school district.

The district was an existing client, but had a new location opening in weeks and needed merchandise as soon as possible.  In the school system, of course, there are more ASAPs than ABCs in August and September, so we went into action to ensure that at least our part of the back-to-school rush was trouble-free.

Organization Helping Local Schools Turn the Page

Teamwork is central to our culture on the job at Roscoe. But one of our favorite kinds of teamwork is the kind that takes place off the job, out in the community, where we are constantly inspired by the work of organizations like Turning the Page, a nonprofit dedicated to promoting family engagement in the schools, developing and supporting parent leaders, and instilling a “lifelong love of learning” in the children it serves.

Roscoe team members recently had the opportunity to help Turning the Page sort and box donated books for the two pop-up bookstores it operates in Chicago. …
