The son of a fisherman, Rich Cahoon grew up on the docks in Cape Cod, Massachusetts. As a young man he shelled scallops and worked on lobster boats before moving to Florida in ’89. His first job in Florida was working alongside Captain Jerry and attributes much of what he knows about the wholesale seafood business to those years he spent as the Captain’s prodigy.
Knowing quality starts at the point of first catch, Rich traveled to Central and South America where he visited several seafood operators and inspected the processing facilities that import product sold in the U.S. Rich became the head of operations for Captain Jerry’s in the late 90s and drove to Miami every day for two years to personally inspect each order coming off the cargo ships.
Rich is on the loading dock at 3am inspecting the day’s deliveries and at his desk by 10am negotiating the next day’s shipments.
