Ben E. Keith Foods recently announced Billy Wilkinson was named to the 2019 International Foodservice Distributors Association (IFDA) Truck Driver Hall of Fame. Wilkinson has been a driver with the broad line foodservice distributor for thirty-three years and is based out of the Dallas-Fort Worth division. There are over 130,000 foodservice distribution drivers currently on the road, but only those with the best safety records and longevity of service qualify for the IFDA Truck Driver Hall of Fame.
To be eligible, the driver must have at least 25 years of employment with an IFDA member company with no chargeable accidents and may not have any moving violations within the last 5 years.
“On behalf of all of us at Ben E. Keith Foods, we applaud and congratulate our colleague Billy Wilkerson for being selected to the IFDA Truck Driver Hall of Fame,” said Mike Sweet, President of Ben E. Keith Foods. “Billy’s track record of safety and service speaks to his character and focus to get the job done right every time.”
The 2019 class will be honored at the IFDA Distribution Solutions Conference on the morning of October 29 at the Orange County Convention Center in Orlando, Florida.
