Employee of the Month June 2015

Congratulations to Denisse – CDC’s Employee of the Month for June 2015!

Employee of the Month September 2014

Employee of the Month July 2014

Congratulations Todd -- CDC's July 2014 Employee of the Month!
 
Todd is a Bench Technician in our New Jersey office, in his 6th year with CDC. Our New Jersey General Manager called Todd "an unspoken leader in the New Jersey service department" based on his wealth of knowledge and helpfulness training new hires.  

 
 

When he isn't repairing or refurbishing equipment, Todd can often be found refreshing our sales team on the features of the equipment that we offer. He is also responsible for cleaning, organizing, and tagging all equipment kept in inventory in New Jersey -- since Todd has taken ownership of this task, the level of organization of our New Jersey equipment warehouse has improved dramatically. 

Employee of the Month May 2014

Congratulations to our dual winners of CDC's May 2014 Employee of the Month award -- Route Drivers Luis and Omar!

 
 

In their special "Late Driver" role, Luis and Omar start their days a little later than the rest of our delivery team, and handle emergency "today" orders that are called in during the morning.

At CDC we have always considered an empty coffee pantry to be a true emergency, and Luis and Omar are key to our ability to handle those emergencies within hours, instead of the next day. Most of our drivers like to beat the traffic and hit the road by 5AM or 6AM -- making "late" deliveries in Manhattan is not an easy job!

Over the past few months, this duo has taken on another responsibility, stocking pantries for one of our high-profile tech clients with unique after-hours needs. Pantry Service for companies that wish to provide a wide array of free snacks and beverages to their staff is a growing part of our business model, and thanks to flexible, hard-working members of our team like Luis and Omar, we are able to make sure our clients' needs are met.

Perfect Day For CDC Softball!

Yesterday, 50+ CDC staff members gathered at Eisenhower Park in East Meadow, NY for our 2014 intra-company softball tournament. The weather cooperated and the event was a tremendous success.

All departments were represented, including staff members from both our New York and New Jersey facilities -- delivery personnel, morning and evening warehouse crew members, repair technicians, customer service staff, salespeople, administrative staff, executives -- a great time was had by all.

Four teams participated, with team names representing our business:

  • Team "Fair Trade" honored the wide array of Fair Trade coffees that we offer.
  • Team "Pride of Colombia" represented CDC's signature Estate Select private label coffee.
  • Team "Cafe Con Leche" paid homage to our bilingual staff members and clients.
  • Team "Solar Power" was fueled by the solar panels on our warehouse roof.
 

Meet The Four Teams!

 

After a morning of round-robin play, Solar Power emerged victorious. Pride of Colombia placed 2nd.

Milk Delivery Inspection Report

CDC's warehouse and delivery vehicles recently underwent a routine inspection by the New York State Department of Agriculture. Attached is the report we were issued as a result of the inspection -- we are proud to say that we passed with flying colors!

As a milk/dairy dealer, we have to be very careful about how we handle refrigerated product every step of the way: from our suppliers, to our warehouse refrigerators and freezers, to our delivery trucks, and eventually to our customers. Safeguarding the freshness and safety of the product we deliver is of utmost concern. 

 

CDC's Refrigerated Truck For Large Dairy Deliveries

 

Dairy products have been one of the fastest-growing segments of our business over the past couple of years. We now deliver close to 1,000 quarts of milk per day to customers throughout New York and New Jersey, as well as dozens of cases of yogurt (primary Chobani and Fage), and specialty items such as fruit, string cheese, and hummus.
