Bil Mar Origins
I consulted (for Greenwich Research) many years ago at Bil Mar Foods in Holland, MI. Bil Mar at that time was a turkey processor. As I recall, the offices were pretty spartan. Bil Mar was not a Fortune 100 comapny….this particular project was directed at mid-size companies and their bank relationships.
A recent story spoke about Request Foods recent expansion. Request Foods makes private label skillet meals for many retailers.
Here is a company that is off the radar screen….except in West Michigan. Knowing the business environment in that area….it is easy to understand why they have been successful.
The common theme: Great businesses that understand their market….are innovative….and have excellent products do very well.
