Associated Services is celebrating the retirement of our San Leandro Branch Coffee Driver, Cres Peterson. Cres started his journey with Associated Services in 2002 and has been a dedicated coffee delivery driver, delivering happiness ever since.

Cres was the kind of guy who always gave 100% of himself to his job making sure his customers were taken care of. He rarely missed work and was a no-nonsense kind of guy.  He took his job seriously and could always be counted on!  He has a long history of working in this industry and for many years he delivered honor snack boxes to customers in the Bay Area.  Then he moved over to the coffee division where he was responsible for customers primarily in San Francisco.  No matter what the challenge, Cres always felt customers came first and if he couldn’t take care of a request, he would make sure that it was handled.

One of Cres’s favorite memories was 2012’s Company party where we took a nighttime boat cruise in the San Francisco Bay, and he always enjoyed our Christmas Parties where we play “Dirty Santa” – though nowadays we play a modified version since we have a much larger staff.

To the new drivers, Cres offers the advice to always smile and listen to your customers.

Thank you, Cres Peterson, for being a part of Associated Services; you will always be a part of the Associated family. We wish you a happy retirement.
