The new Meat Department manager at Summer Fresh, Rick Daugherty, brings 35 years of experience to the job. He transferred to the El Dorado Springs store from Ramey’s in Nevada which is also owned by Price Cutter. The move puts him a little closer to his home in Chalk Level where he and his wife have a farm. Daugherty actually started in the grocery business when he was 16.
“It’s all I’ve ever done,” he says. He continued, “I’ve enjoyed coming in here and taking this thing over, cleaning it up and making it look nice. I enjoy the people in El Dorado. They’re just a bunch of old country people. They make it special.”
Store Manager Jeff Copeland says Daugherty is doing a great job and is consistent in his work product and presentation.
