We’re getting close, Menasha! The new Festival Foods grocery store, located at 1355 Oneida Street in Menasha, is expected to open Friday, June 10.
We’re looking for great people to join our team there. Open interviews for a variety of part-time and full-time positions will be held this week at Waverly Beach, N8770 Fire Lane 1, Menasha. Applicants may stop by from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. May 10 and 11; 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. May 12 and 13; and 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. May 14. That’s where you’ll get to meet some of our great Human Resources teammates, including Tia (pictured below), who have built great careers at Festival Foods.
The store, which is our 24th location in Wisconsin, will operate 24 hours a day and employ an estimated 225 to 250 associates. Festival Foods opened a store in Madison in April and took over ownership and operations of the Sentry located in Paddock Lake this month, which was our 23rd location in the Badger state.
Similar to the company’s recently opened store in Janesville, the Menasha location features Orion skylights and “green” equipment, including LED and motion sensor lighting, as well as a dining deck area above the deli and a community conference room. The Tot Spot, Festival Foods’ supervised in-store child care service, will be available for shoppers with children ages 18 months to 7 years. The Tot Spot provides a fun, safe learning environment for children at no charge while their parents or guardians shop at Festival Foods.
Our Menasha store will also offer a variety of natural and organic foods, fresh sushi, a healthy salad and hot food bar, an extensive deli, catering services, and a complete selection of groceries, meats and produce.
According to Mark Skogen, president and CEO of Festival Foods, the company eagerly anticipates the opening of its newest store.
“Menasha represents a key opportunity to expand our business and to better serve our growing guest base throughout the Fox Valley. We are honored to become a member of this wonderful Wisconsin community,” said Skogen, who added that the new store will exemplify Festival Foods’ continuing commitment to selection, pricing and service excellence.
“In today’s marketplace, consumers have high expectations for the value they receive for their money as well as how they are treated,” he said. “We are excited about the opportunity to offer Menasha guests value-driven pricing, a wide selection that includes healthy choices, and a great shopping experience.”
More details about this store will be announced as they become available.
