Meat & Greet: Branson
This week on the blog, we’re featuring our plant manager, Branson Kline. Branson joined the Stoltzfus Meats team in July 2019 and brought with him years of experience overseeing and managing wholesale and production facilities. Here’s what Branson shared about himself:
Q: Tell us a little bit about yourself and what you enjoy doing outside of work.
A: I enjoy time with my family. We enjoy going to the beach and doing outdoor activities. I enjoy playing and watching sports.
Q: Even though every day is a little bit different, can you tell us what a typical day looks like for you?
A: I start my workday around 5:30AM most mornings. My day consists of scheduling production of daily products and upcoming days. It also involves process improvement in our processing lines, as well as trouble shooting any issues that may arise and overseeing all aspects of production. I participate in product development meetings and regularly meet with the supervisors of each department to make sure things are running smoothly. Lastly, I put effort into investing into the lives of each of the employees that works in the plant.
Q: What is your favorite Stoltzfus Meats product?
A: Bacon. Bacon goes on everything in our house!
Q: If you could travel anywhere in the world right now, where would it be and why?
A: North Dakota. It is currently the only state I have never been to!
