Meet Ric Scicchitano, Food & Drink Resources’ New Managing Partner

In September, Food & Drink Resources (FDR) had the great fortune of bringing on a new managing partner, Ric Scicchitano. Ric will serve alongside FDR Co-founders Richard Keys and Scott Randolph and will lead the development of new business growth. More specifically, he will work to bring on new agency clients, build existing client relationships, expand FDR’s range of services, and work side-by-side with the FDR culinary team.

Before joining FDR, Ric served as the President of Which Wich and prior to that spent 25+ years at Corner Bakery in a variety of roles, from corporate Chef / Baker in the early days rising to Executive Vice President of Food & Supply Chain before leaving the fast-casual brand. With culinary arts and baking & pastry training from the Culinary Institute America in Hyde Park, New York, Ric seems to always find his way to the R&D kitchen regardless of his title. Perhaps that’s why he’s landed at FDR–to be near recipe innovation more often, an FDR specialty. Continue reading
