Mozer looks for reliable and consistent vendors for her customers—Noosa Yoghurt, Morning Fresh Dairy milk, Horsetooth Hot Sauce, Quatrix Aquaponics lettuce, Native Hill Farm carrots, and MouCo cheese are just a few. She looks for fun products like Dr. D’s probiotic soda. And she’s even stumbled across a cleaning products made from biodiesel byproducts made by the Summit Soap Company. All of these are Coloradoproduced.

Things are going pretty well according to the business plan. “We have to move a lot of stuff to make it work. The margin is small,” Mozer said. “We’re looking to make two million this year, which will make us a viable, grown-up business.” “Sometimes it’s the little things that frustrate me. It’s easy to get lost in the weeds,” Mozer said. “But looking at the big picture and how far we’ve come is really empowering and exciting.” LoCo Food Distribution deals mainly in wholesale supply, but there are occasional events where the general public can get a hold of LoCo’s products. Warehouse Days and buying clubs offer people the opportunity to group up with friends and shop at LoCo for discounted items—bulk cheese, boxes of lettuce, etc. Check out LoCo’s website or Facebook page for more information.

LoCo Food is the first company to implement this distribution strategy in the region, though there’s another competitor in Boulder now. “I get calls from people all over the country thinking about starting something similar,” Mozer said. “It’s very exciting.”
