How did Kelly’s become #1?
By sticking to it’s original goal of putting the customer first everytime and insuring first rate service and competitive pricing.
That’s why Kelly’s Foods serves theme parks, KFC, Pollo Tropical, Popeyes, and many regional customers, such as Bud’s and Maryland Fried Chicken, as well as numerous retail meat markets, delis, and restaurants throughout the Southeast. With sales figures topping $300 million annually, it’s clear that Kelly’s continues to put their customers first.
