“The reason I grew so fast in the supermarket business, without the help of the banks in those days, was through my vendors. I convinced my vendors, the companies I was doing business with, if I did more business, they would do more business.” – Quote by John Catsimatidis, CEO of Gristedes Foods Supermarkets in New York.
