Kaufmann got his start in the foodservice industry in New York City's Bowery working for his uncle's equipment and supply firm. From there he opened Kaufmann and Goldberger Associates. In 1981 he established a Pittsburgh rep firm named Carl Kaufmann and Associates. Kaufmann sold the business 25 years later and moved to Colorado where he continued to work as a rep.
