Lisa Sutton

COO of Icon Meals in Farmers Branch

“Logistics is complex, tricky and costly for many manufacturers and after working in the industry for over a decade I’ve yet to meet a provider that is willing to go above and beyond like Trinity. Communication is prompt, proactive and concise which frees up a lot of bandwidth for me to focus on long term strategies. I never have to worry about the integrity of our product or hitting on time delivery when Trinity is involved. Trinity is best in the business and I look forward to growing our partnership with them as we expand our brand and presence in more regions!”
