leadership team to quickly evaluate opportunities, ideas
and processes that are consistent with their vision.
The road map to achieving this vision is based on
teamwork, integrity, respect and data, Myers said. The
leadership team has worked diligently to ensure that everyone
who works at Carolina Foods is well-informed of
the vision, goals and how each person contributes. This
imparts a culture of ownership and accountability within
the company.
" Ownership and accountability only work when
backed up by facts, " Myers said. " Everyone knows what
good looks like. We share a lot of information with our
team, so they stay engaged; the more they know, the
more engaged and invested they are. "
This is where the data comes into play. KPIs to ensure
that Carolina Foods is achieving its vision are directly
tied to metrics that the company tracks. Stuart Smith,
vice president of operations, noted the company tracks
quality and downtime hourly, and all of that information
is communicated down to the production floor level.
" We distill that information down to 'How do I as a
team member impact our goals?' " he said.
This degree of communication and transparency
with every level of the team has infused the culture of
Carolina Foods with ownership and accountability.
It also has helped the company dial into quality and

freshness like never before and has laid the groundwork
for the biggest investment yet, a state-of-the-art greenfield
facility that has taken quality control to a new level.
A next-level bakery
A new facility was an inevitability for Carolina Foods in
the eyes of both the Scarborough family and Falfurrias
Capital Partners. Myers noted that, according to the
family, Falfurrias was the only potential buyer that was
committed to building a new facility to support
company's growth. This was a significant reason why the
the
Scarborough family chose Falfurrias.
" They also happened to be headquartered in the
Charlotte area and committed to the city, so it all aligned
quite nicely, " he continued.
The South End bakery was landlocked, and the neighborhood
was transforming away from industrial manufacturing,
so it was in the company's best interest to find
a new location. Pineville, a suburb of Charlotte, was only
10 minutes from South End, and 89% of the current employees
said they would be willing and able to commute
that distance. The new bakery is also close to three main
highways, making it ideal for both employees' commutes
and logistics.
" Retaining our workforce was vitally important because
we needed to keep that organizational knowledge, "
Myers said. " We're also positioned to draw workforce
not just from Charlotte but also the surrounding communities
east and west of Charlotte and even into South
Carolina. "
Constructing a greenfield bakery, rather than retrofitting
an existing building, allowed Carolina Foods to
build in the latest engineering techniques and technology
to ensure it could turn out the highest quality products
as efficiently as possible.
" Building a new facility to support the next 90 years
for Carolina Foods is exciting, and Falfurrias allowed
us to start with a clean canvas without constraints, "
