John Foley is a retail finance executive based in St. Paul, Minnesota, who works directly with the CDS Consulting Co-op’s Expansion and Growth Team doing financial analysis and proformas for food co-ops.

John is currently the director of finance at Outpost Natural Foods Cooperative. John joined Outpost in 1992 when sales were under $4.5 million and there was only one store. Since 1995, John has led the finance side of several expansion activities, including one store expansion and two new store openings.

“I like helping co-ops expand and open new locations,” John said. Budgeting has always been John’s favorite part of his role at Outpost, and he has enjoyed working with CDS clients to evaluate their own expansion opportunities. He has been working as an independent consultant with CDS CC since July 2009.

John works in partnership with the Expansion and Growth Team to provide:

  • Financial analysis
  • Proformas
  • Business planning
