Kate’s Real Food is pleased to announce the addition of Paul Alvarez and Chris Rounds to their team of representatives.

“We are very excited about these new partnerships,” says Kate Schade, founder and innovator at Kate’s Real Food. “Both have extensive experience and enthusiasm, as well as a true understanding of our customer and our product. Kate’s Real Food is happy to have them on board!”

An outdoor specialist based out of Reno, NV, Paul Alvarez brings boundless energy and 20 years of experience to the table. He will be heading up sales for the northern California and Tahoe area. His other clients include Point 6, Nordica and Sun Valley Ski Tools.

Paul fits right in with the Kate’s Real Food crowd, saying his favorite part about representing the bars is being able to truthfully convey to retailers why he loves them: “I can stay out much longer because Kate’s Real Food bars give me the energy I need to keep slaying the pow or ripping it up on the groomers.”

With over 40 years of experience, Chris Rounds has an excellent reputation that precedes him. He is a staple of the outdoor industry in the Midwest, where he will be proudly representing Kate’s Real Food. Boasting over 60 specialty accounts, Chris’s other clientele include Osprey Packs, Princeton Tec and Treksta.

“I fell in love with Kate’s Bars a couple of years ago and decided to pursue this opportunity in my sales territory,” says Rounds. “To find a line of this quality, that is not over distributed, is rare and offers a unique consumable product that can offer many turns each year for specialty retailers”

Kate’s Real Food continues to expand their sales and marketing efforts. If you are a representative in the Colorado / Rocky Mountain area who may be interested in a sales opportunity, please contact and include Rocky MT Rep in the subject line. Must love Kate’s Real Food.
