Nick davidson – Sales Consultant – ndavidson@vntgimports.com – 215-788-1300 EX 410

Nick’s passion for the industry started well before it began here at Vintage Imports. He can recall growing up in a home full of energy and passion for all things food and wine. Sundays at home were always filled with friends and family enjoying sports, great wine, cocktails, and food. It’s perhaps where some of the competitive bones began to form, that he’d later take on with him in athletics. After settling in on baseball as his primary sport, he took an opportunity to stay close to family while pursuing one his first dreams, and played collegiate baseball at Rowan University in South Jersey.

It was then, in his later years at Rowan, he started traveling into Philadelphia regularly to explore his passion further for the restaurant business. It was perhaps the family environment, and the similarities he found to his “Sundays” at home that really drew him into the restaurant business.

Upon graduation, and returning home to the Jersey Shore, he found himself exploring and learning as much as he could about wine, spirits, and cooking from whoever would teach him. For over 10 years he worked every position he could in the building, until there was really only one option remaining. So as his knowledge and experience grew, with his appetite for the restaurant business, he realized he was working toward eventually one day owning his own. But as anyone in the restaurant industry will tell you, it’s not easy work, and is certainly a daunting business that takes its toll.

It was around this same time that Nick met his wife Allison, and immediately knew that while owning a restaurant has it’s challenges, doing so whilst also beginning this new chapter, posses it’s own set of challenges. So the transition to a side of the business that he was already somewhat familiar with, from working with suppliers, and distributors alike, was the next best thing.

In his years here at Vintage Imports he’s quickly settled into a new role on the other side of the business he loved. He fast grew to love this new opportunity and has continued to use his years of experience to help cultivate new relationships and partners for Vintage Imports.

Today, Nick is still an avid sports fan and he and his wife have two young children and and reside together in West Long Branch, New Jersey
