Dick Gould, Jr.
Visionary Leader

Dick Gould Jr. was 24 years old when he, his father and two partners bought Hy-Grade Sales, renamed it Buzz Products, Inc. and built a new, state-of-the-art meat processing facility.  During Dick's 35 years of leadership, he greatly expanded the footprint of Buzz Buttered Steaks, acquired Haddy's Prime Beef, transitioned the company into foodservice meat-cutting, expanded the product offering into that of a full-line food service distributor, and most importantly, attracted multiple generations of colleagues who made Buzz a lasting success.  He was widely respected for his business acumen and community involvement, but devoted most of his time and energy to being a devoted husband and father.
