Debbie Suassana

Debbie Suassuna has over 20 years of location research and site analysis experience. She has broad experience having worked with big box retailers, smaller specialty stores, as well as with chain stores and independent retailers. “I really like what I do, from first looking at a site and projecting how it will perform, then to actually see the store open,” she said. She finds her work with food co-ops especially rewarding because their expansion activities are motivated by meeting member needs and serving their communities. “I find that cooperative boards and general managers are authentically interested in making things better. It’s inspiring to me to work with people whose ideas always take them back to improving their community,” she said.
