Our leadership team is open and collaborative. We actively seek input from employees at all levels – we love hearing ideas about how we can improve safety, prevent accidents, ensure product quality, and be more efficient. Many of our most successful initiatives came from the plant floor.
We have an open-door policy across all our locations. Any team member at Ken's can offer suggestions or seek advice from anyone on our leadership team – including our executives. We're proud to encourage our team members as they grow, supporting career development by providing training and tuition reimbursement.
Our culture is about creating the winning formula. To us, this means combining a success culture with the right business strategy and strong financial results. On every level, creating this winning formula is dependent on our people, and we know that our success is entirely driven by the efforts and dedication of our team.

“What made me choose Ken's Foods was the personality of the place. When I walked in the door, people were happy to be here. A year later, and I’m still loving the job – that's just the kind of place it is. My military skills were directly applicable to my job at Ken's; the mechanisms that make an engine run are the same that allow you to fill a bottle. But the primary skill we focus on is leadership. We’re looking to develop and raise leaders.”

“We have some really awesome people here at Ken’s. The leadership team cares about our wellness and is always training us. They want us to stay and grow with them. They want the best quality people creating the best quality products. Another benefit of working here is work stability. We’ve had no cut hours or cut pay, even when the economy was down. We also do a lot of work in our community. We’ve done a breast cancer awareness fundraiser and we sponsor a local school. We definitely give back.”

“We make sure that everyone who comes to Ken’s gets proper training. From day one, you’ll feel as if you’ve been here for a long time. Our environment is very good; we work well together and communicate about what’s going on. Because of my military experience, I have high standards and I love the fact that I am the one who ensures that the product a customer gets is the right color and flavor – that the label is not even crooked. It has to be right; there are no two ways about it.”

“Working at Ken’s brought me out of my shell. They really helped to build me up to where I am now. When they see potential, they do their best to bring it out of you. They’ll train you, pay for a portion of your schooling – not a lot of companies do that. Our culture is like a family. Ken’s is by far the best company I have worked for.”
