Wegmans Food Markets, an innovative supermarket company, has been operating from Rochester, New York since 1916. It is still owned and run by the Wegman family. Both the customer experience and the careers of its over 42,000 employees are areas in which Wegmans has won awards. They've been at or near the top of Fortune magazine's "100 Best Companies to Work For" list several times. Wegmans has 80 stores in the U.S. Northeast, with annual sales in 2011 of $6.2 billion.
Wegmans introduced price scanning in 1974, and was involved in the implementation of grocery UPCs. They have designed stores that are larger than most, with the produce, deli, and bakery sections combined to produce the experience of shopping in a European marketplace.
Wegmans Food Markets places an emphasis on employee development, which won them a Dale Carnegie Leadership Award, as well as an award from the National Down Syndrome Congress for employment and support of individuals with Down syndrome. Opportunities at Wegmans range from corporate positions in operations, real estate, IT, and marketing, to production and distribution of products. Store positions are supported with ongoing training and development programs, scholarship programs, and jobs and mentoring for at-risk youth.
