SALT LAKE CITY (December 14, 2012)—Nicholas & Co, the 17th largest broadline distributor in the country, was honored alongside several restaurateurs earlier this month by the Utah Restaurant Association during its annual meeting and awards dinner in Salt Lake City.
Bill Mouskondis, board chairman of Nicholas & Co, was inducted into the Utah Restaurant Association Hall of Fame. Mouskondis follows in the footsteps of his father and has spent his life devoted to the success of those in the restaurant business.
From their founding in 1939 to their current third-generation leadership, Nicholas & Company has been honored with numerous awards including the Utah Department of Workforce Services Work/Life Award for ten consecutive years, Best Company to Work for in 2005 and 2011 from Utah Business Magazine and Best of State Statue and awards in 2003, 2006, 2009 - 2012.
They take pride in their culture and practicing what they call "philotimo" each day—a Greek word meaning "the love of honor" and said to capture the true importance of hospitality.
