Team Member Spotlight: Zackary Shumaker


Tell us a little bit about yourself.
My name is Zackary Shumaker. I have a family and a wife named Roxann. This year, my family was fortunate enough to buy an RV to explore the great outdoors that Wyoming has to offer. I love boating, camping, fishing, and walking at night with my family. I enjoy waking up at a campsite and drinking coffee with my wife. I love Wyoming, but I also like to travel to other places, especially during the cold weather we get in the winter. 

When did you join the Border family?
I have been working for Border Foods for almost nine years. 

What is your favorite part about working for Border Foods?
I like being able to mentor staff at every level. They each develop and grow so much.

What’s your go-to menu item?
a regular taco

Any fun facts about yourself that you can share with us?
I moved to an island to become a dock master.

If given a chance, who would you like to be for a day and why?
I would be Brutus during the Ohio State vs Michigan game at The Big House. I could look up at all the Wolverines crying when OSU wins. Go bucks!

Share three career lessons you’ve learned so far.
Find a mentor to learn from and talk through situations. Connect with team members, customers and your community. One of my family’s favorite quotes is, “Luck is when preparedness meets opportunity.” Prepare yourself for opportunities with your mentor, and whatever else engages you.

What do you like to do in your spare time?
I enjoy spending time outdoors with my family.
