Q: If you could choose any person in the world to have dinner with, who would it be and why? What dinnerware from our premier brands would you use?

A: That is a great question. Since I’ve played golf all my life it would be Jack Nicklaus. Jack in his day was totally focused on the course and nothing distracted his goal of winning! The dinnerware would be a mix of RAK Stone by RAK Porcelain and white porcelain squares and rounds by Tuxton. Very strong and durable and long-lasting like Jack!  

For Anthony tabletop has always been a passion as his roots in the industry began by working for a Distributor who was an industry leader in the category. There he was able to learn from some of the best Tabletop presenters in the industry. As he continued his path on the distribution side of the business, he is proud to say he has opened and taken part in over 200+ new installations of dinnerware. As his career shifted and he moved to the factory side of the business, he was fortunate to be a regional sales manager for a premier melamine manufacturer. At that time he learned about the elevation of melamine in the industry and the proper placement of this product into the market. Anthony’s next step as a District Manager for one of the most respected glassware and tabletop manufacturers allowed him greater access to both end users and distributor sales reps. His team assisted in hundreds of opportunities a year and he was able to gain further perspective to the competitive landscape of this business segment.

Today Anthony gets to represent various premier Tabletop Manufacturers in his role here at Zink and that flexibility allows him the opportunity to service a wide range of customers with a proper solution for all. He says “It is always an honor to be selected to represent an end user’s tabletop as it is many times the most photographed and memorable part of a meal.”

Q: Favorite thing to show in the showroom? Favorite thing about the showroom experience?

A: My favorite thing about a customer visiting our showroom is the expression on their face when they first enter the space. Immediately they realize the scope of products we have and are generally impressed with our displays and product offerings. I love the process of putting together a tabletop.  Matching form and function to the creative desires of the customers is a unique experience. It is also great to see how a visit for a high-speed oven leads to a tabletop conversation and how our team interacts to take care of our customers and provide an overall positive experience. From then on we become a source for that operator.
