Sales Representative, West Coast
Jerome Rivoire grew up in Burgundy, France. As a kid, he would ride his bicycle to a local restaurant owned by his parents’ friends and help in the kitchen. His childhood dream was to open his own restaurant so after working in finance in Paris he decided to move to San Francisco in 2004 to work in the restaurant business. He worked his way up and opened his first restaurant, Garcon, in the mission district a few years later.
In 2020, Jerome decided for a change in a career where he could apply his skills and knowledge of the Food Service industry in a different field so he joined Fabrique Délices. He is the West Coast sales representative and enjoys sharing his love for Charcuterie and Fabrique Délices’ dedication to tradition, quality, and creativity.
Village Gourmet National Food Service Sales Manager, East Coast based
Quitterie Dankha grew up in the Basque Country, between the mountains and the ocean. Surrounded by outstanding quality ingredients, she had the best examples of them cooked at home by her Mother. When most kids have a sweet tooth, she was more into Roquefort, game birds, and offals.
Working in the Food Industry was a no brainer, and so she did for the last 8 years: in Indonesia, The US, London… But being raised with Crosby & Fitzgerald… the dream was also New York. After working in Food Service distribution with top Michelins restaurants and hotels in London, she moved back to the big apple with her husband, and has been working on Fabrique Délices and Three Little Pigs National Sales since.
Outside of work, Quitterie enjoys traveling, spending time with her family & friends, and tasting new wines!
