Meet Megan Adams

Megan Adams is a young professional in the Food Equipment and Supplies (FE&S) and Food Equipment Design (FED) industry. She is one of few female generation successors to an FE&S and FED dealership, C.Worth, Inc. Megan’s approach to connective leadership, consultative sales strategies, and purposefully weaving meaningful work to support her surrounding community is what sets her apart from industry peers. Megan has served in influential leadership capacities in the FE&S and FED industries. She has promoted training & development as a Cutting Edge Online Training ambassador, is a founding participant in Women Industry Leaders, and is an ambassador for consumer financing services such as LeaseQ and TimePayment. She was selected by industry professionals to serve on Strata GPO’s Young Industry Leaders (YIL) steering committee. Her contributions included strategic planning, sourcing manufacturer sponsor opportunities, branding and marketing, participant recruitment planning, and more. Because of Megan’s leadership, the steering committee launched Young Industry Leaders in Fall of 2023.  

Intertwining purpose to mission is the root of Megan’s being. As such, she is proud to support young culinary students as a sponsor of the Kentucky Pro-Start Program, a culinary education program for high school students. She also sponsors Lexington Restaurant Week to promote independent small business owners and has supported multiple non-profit projects focused on food insecurity in Kentucky, particularly in Appalachia. Megan’s passion for engaging in community service opportunities beyond kitchen design & supply project work was the impetus for C.Worth Inc. to be an original investor in DV8, a Lexington-based non-profit bakery that employs second-chance employees in active addiction recovery.  

Megan Adams is certified RYT-200 yoga teacher and a Y12SR (Yoga 12 Step Recovery) meeting facilitator. She is an active member of the Junior League of Lexington, currently acting as the Merchant Chair for the League’s annual Holly Day Market. Megan served as chapter advisor for Alpha Chi Omega, Delta Omega at the University of Kentucky from 2022-2024 and currently participates in the local alumnae group. 

More than anything, Megan sprinkles light on the path for women who want to engage in their dream work but fear the industry due to disproportionate male presence. Through her experience, strength and perspective, Megan strives to empower women and help them understand they are capable, they can have a seat at the table, their experiences add value, and anything is possible with discipline, mentorship and alignment with purpose.
