Hanako’s Story
A Cool Connection
In her final year at New York University, where Hanako was finishing her master’s in industrial engineering and supply chain management, she took an internship at FreshDirect. Hanako was familiar with the company because of her boyfriend, who cooked a meal from the company on one of the couple’s first few dates.
