KaTom Restaurant Supply, Inc., a Russellville, Tenn.-based foodservice equipment and supplies dealership, was named one of five finalists in INC. Magazine's contest for America's Next Economy Hero. The competition selects companies and their respective CEO's that have made a continued positive contribution to the U.S. economy.
KaTom and the four other finalists were selected from more than 250 Economy Hero applicants. "To think that I am among people who are making a positive difference in our country is mind boggling. I'm honored, thrilled and inspired to work harder," says Patricia Bible, KaTom president and CEO.
Bible and her late husband Tim co-founded KaTom Restaurant Supply in 1985 out of their garage and under the parent company B & B Equipment and Supply, Inc.
