Member Spotlight: Pucci Foods
Pucci Foods has been around for almost 100 years, but the Hayward-based seafood supplier is not stuck in the past. Under the leadership of CEO Chris Lam, Pucci Foods is making a bold move from supplying wholesale and retail outlets – stores and restaurants – to delivering direct to consumers. The innovation recognizes the growing consumer demand for direct-delivery food service. And it builds on the infrastructure that Pucci has already mastered in its wholesale and retail services, giving it a leg up against newer start-ups that are only beginning to enter the space. That and Pucci’s reputation as the Bay Area’s leading wholesale and retail purveyor of seafood give it an immediate competitive advantage. Pucci’s expansion into consumer-direct was prominently featured in a story this week by the East Bay Times, which includes the fascinating life story of Chris Lam and his journey from Vietnamese refugee to successful business owner.
