Ben E. Keith Foods driver Paul Terrell was named to the 2020 International Foodservice Distributors Association (IFDA) Truck Driver Hall of Fame. Terrell has been a driver with the broadline foodservice distributor for 25 years and is based out of the Mid-South division. There are over 130,000 foodservice distribution drivers currently on the road, but only those with the best safety records and longevity of service qualify for the IFDA Truck Driver Hall of Fame.
To be eligible, the driver must have at least 25 years of employment with an IFDA member company with no chargeable accidents and may not have any moving violations within the last 5 years.
“On behalf of all of us at Ben E. Keith Foods, we congratulate our colleague Paul Terrell for being selected to the IFDA Truck Driver Hall of Fame,” said Rusty Mathis, General Manager of Ben E. Keith Foods Mid-South. “Paul’s track record of safety and service speaks to his character and focus to get the job done right every time.” Mathis added “It’s worth noting that over his 26+ years Paul has driven over 2.5 million miles for Ben E. Keith Foods.”
The 2020 Hall of Fame inductees will be honored at the IFDA Distribution Solutions Conference on October 28th.
