Employee Recognition Award Recipients


2019 - Beatriz Cordoba 

TransCold Distribution, Inc.

I am a California native and have been working in the ice cream industry since 2017. I am a student at Chaffey College. If I'm not at work, church or school, I am probably on my computer planning my next trip. I love to travel and learn about different cultures. The best part about working for TransCold is the people,  from my colleagues to customers it feels like I'm working with family. I really enjoy meeting new faces, better yet, I enjoy putting a smile on these new faces. Customer service is my priority. A fun fact about me is that my favorite ice creams are, the Choco Taco and Spongebob popsicle. 

"Beatriz has a natural ability to sell ice cream to all her Mobile Vendor customers throughout Southern California. Her relationships with customers have been built on skill, product knowledge, and her constant follow-up, not only by phone but by visiting many of her customers in person with gifts and prizes in hand! Bea really cares about the customers under her charge and will move mountains to ensure a great and positive transaction has taken place......from order to delivery, she follows through on her commitments to customers. Bea has made a difference in many people's lives and she is to be cherished forever."
