Curtis Burns

On-Premise Sales Representative
How long have you been with Origlio Beverage? 7 years.
What does your current job entail? I am an on-premise representative in Lancaster county. I work with bars, taverns, restaurants and social clubs. I work directly with owners and managers of these establishments – taking orders, helping manage inventory, discussing new brands and products in the market, and working to make sure the best opportunities are provided to our customers to thrive in this ever-changing market.
What do you like most about your job? I love the interaction with our customers and their customers as well. I find it’s like a family environment at the establishments. Some of my customers are good friends of mine and I care a lot about how they are and how their business does. At the end of the day, we are there for each other, to help provide for our families.
What does it take to be a top-notch sales rep at Origlio Beverage? The desire to want to be great. And to enjoy and embrace what you do. Whenever I’m having an off day, I say to myself, “I sell beer for a living…” it doesn’t get much better than that. I get the chance to work with great, hardworking people in this industry. If I can have any part in their success, I’m doing something right.
What do you like to do when you’re not working? I love spending time with my four kids. I also enjoy socializing with my friends. I’ve met some amazing people [in this industry] over the past 7 years... it’s nice to be able to put work aside and just enjoy each other’s company.
If you could be anywhere, drinking any beer, where would you be and what beer would be in your hand? I’d be hanging out on the beach, feet in the sand, listening to the waves crashing and drinking a Cape May Coastal Evacuation – one of my favorite beers!
