The tale of Payton and the Tanka factory

August 14, 2014

Payton Skye Brave Heart, one of the original Tanka Bar babies and our president Mark Tilsen's grandson, stopped by our headquarters recently for a visit.

First he checked in with Eugene Stover, inside sales manager, and Jason Stover, marketing specialist. Next up was spending time in the Tanka warehouse with Rachel Hunter, supply chain manager, and Kelly Hunter, shipping specialist. He told his papa that the new Tanka Bar Apple Orange Peel is his favorite.

After taking a gander at all of the pallets of product, Payton asked, "How much is this? I could eat THIS much!" To that his papa said over 10,000 bars.

"Wow!" Payton, said.

Well all that exploring wore Payton out and even though he took a little break (as you see above) he still passed out on the way home -- as visions of buffalo bounced in his head.
