About the store
The co-op operates a 12,000 square foot store with annual sales of approximately $5 million and a staff of 40-50. We are about two things: cultivating community and providing meaningful goods and services. Our success is achieved through a lot of business visioning and systems development. It basically works like this: goals are set by the board of directors, management defines how they will achieve those goals and we all work together to get there.
We consistently rank in the top quartile among food co-ops in staff satisfaction!
We strive for a culture of gratitude and encourage direct communication as a way to resolve conflict. Our managers practice a servant leadership style that creates an open workplace. We work hard to be as transparent as possible, taking feedback on decisions that affect our employees and giving them an outlet to share their ideas on how to make the Co-op better.
We feel it is important that everyone, from an entry-level cashier or cook to our team of managers, have some level of understanding of all the aspects of our business. This includes financial transparency. We do this so that we can all work together to make the Co-op and our community better. One of the ways we do this is through Open Book Management or OBM for short. OBM is how we empower all of our employees to achieve and share in our success.
The health and well-being of our staff are important to our board of directors and to the managers at the Co-op. We offer competitive wages for the area, as well as benefits to both our hourly and salaried team members, based on eligibility. These benefits include:
Health benefit program
Vacation benefits for part-time and full-time employees
401(k) Retirement Plan
