Hi, I’m Howard Gasser! I represent the West division of Johnsonville Foodservice and I am a California native born and raised. In true Johnsonville fashion, I can honestly say I have never tasted a product we make that I didn’t like. You can never go wrong with one of our Brats loaded with sauerkraut and spicy mustard. I look forward to partnering with you and growing our business together.
Hi, I’m Janine Borel! I’m the Regional Sales Manager for the Central U.S. region. I remember distinctly as a child seeing the Johnsonville ads with Charlie Murphy cooking Johnsonville Brats – Like this one. They made a lasting impression that when brats are on the grill, everyone wants to come to dinner! Our Ultimate Sausages are my favorite. They’re flavorful, juicy, and have a tender coarse ground texture.

Hi, I’m Scott Gabbard! I represent Johnsonville as the National Foodservice Distributor Manager. My customers are the food distributors servicing the nation’s foodservice needs to all operations; whether big or small. I have been in and around food for most of life. As the old saying goes, “once you’re in Foodservice you can never leave,” so here I am doing what I love.
I live in a suburb of Indianapolis, IN. Chances are you can find me either at the airport on business travel or at the soccer field cheering on my 15-year-old daughter as she plays travel soccer.
I have never tried a Johnsonville product that I didn’t like, but my two favorites are the Smoked Andouille and Hot Italian Sausage. The Smoked Andouille adds an authentic Cajun flavor to any Jambalaya and there’s nothing like a dressed-up Hot Italian Sausage that reminds you of being at the state fair.
I look forward to helping you experience the Johnsonville Way, and watching you become a satisfied customer for life..
