Local Supermarket Makes FORTUNE’s “100 Best Companies To Work For” List

For the 16th year in a row, Wegmans has made FORTUNE Magazine’s “100 Best Companies to Work For” list, coming in at number 5.

“Our employees are the number one reason our customers shop at Wegmans,” said Wegmans CEO Danny Wegman. “I’m convinced there is only one path to great customer service, and that is through employees who feel they are cared about and empowered.”

Wegmans has made the list every year since it was first published in 1998 and has been ranked in the top 10 for 11 straight years.

The company is one of only 13 companies that have been on the list since the beginning.
