Portrait of Ricardo
Ricardo was the general manager at Superior Grocers in Lancaster, California, USA. He was the manager there for 2 years but sustained this grocery management career for 15 years altogether, managing various departments including Meat, Produce and Grocery.
Ricardo loved working at Superior Grocers, “People that love what they do, take that ownership and do better.” Ricardo chose this career path because when he was a young grocery shopper , watching people working, he noted the way people worked and was sure he “could do a better job than what you normally see people do in a grocery.”
His oldest son was 24 years old, attended University of Washington and majored in Bioengineering. We spoke about UW for awhile because I graduated from UW College of Engineering,in Aeronautics and Astronautics. Ricardo had been on the UW campus with his son and showed me copious amounts of pictures as I called out the names of the buildings and places. We both had fun reminiscing about the gorgeous UW campus.
