Gary Mazzone, CEO of Elite, states, “We consider it an honor and privilege to join CFS Brands. We are so excited to become a part of their team and build a portfolio of front of the house brands that enhance their existing products. This combination will facilitate tremendous growth for both brands and will open us up to new markets. The leadership team at Elite Global Solutions is so impressed and motivated to build on this opportunity and looks forward to a successful transition.”
