Fresh Seafood
The Eighties

Product offering expansion continued as Pocono introduced a fresh seafood department in 1983. In 1984 a 330,000 cubic-foot freezer was constructed to meet the increased demand for frozen products throughout all segments of the foodservice industry. A modern sales training center was added, complete with a fully-equipped test and demonstration kitchen. The sales team was introduced to more technology as remote order entry became a reality. This technology feature was the link that paved the way for Pocono’s seamless communication with its customers.
