  • In 2009, Lakeside Produce Distribution has again been awarded the Weatherhead School of Management at Case Western Reserve University’s “Weatherhead 100” award. Showcasing the fastest growing companies in Northeast Ohio, this award is a testament to hard work, commitment, innovation, and the dream to succeed. Qualifying companies must show consistent growth over the last five years.
  • In 2008, Lakeside’s president Terry Granzier was one of Produce Business Magazine’s “40 under 40” award. Winners are awarded this honor by industry mentors for demonstrating an extremely high degree of giving back to the people and places that have helped them reach their current positions.
  • In 2007, Lakeside was honored with the prestigious Weatherhead 100 “Number One Upstart Company” award based upon its 1,500% increase in sales in 2006 (over the previous 5 years). Weatherhead School of Management has been in the top 10 percent of the world’s business schools for decades.
    Granzier attributed the growth to three vital factors:
    1. Incredibly strong relationships with Lakeside’s partner-growers through regular communications, and food safety training.
    2. Lakeside’s goal to exceed customers’ expectations by handling product from “field to manufacturing facility”.
    3. Protrace, Lakeside’s proprietary software that gives the company a competitive edge in allowing contract customers the ability to log onto a secure website and view real-time information regarding their delivery.
