Tony Kucharski began his career in the warehousing and logistics industry as a teenager at his father’s company. He worked in almost every position you could think of. It was only fitting that he built McCook Cold Storage from the ground up and is the President of the company. After a few years of leading McCook and really getting to know our customers’ needs and wants, Tony decided to open the transportation division, MCS Freight, to accommodate customers even better. Even with so many years of experience in both warehousing and transportation, Tony is always looking for better and innovative ways to service the frozen food industry.
