The newest Festival Foods on Green Bay's north side is NOW OPEN at 2430 University Avenue, near the intersection of Highway 57. It's the 25th Festival Foods in Wisconsin and the fifth in the Green Bay area.
It operates 24 hours a day and employs more than 225 associates. In addition to a grocery store, the development includes a Kwik Trip gas station and retail outlet not owned by Festival Foods.
"We are excited to have a new location on the north side of Green Bay, and we welcome new guests who live and work in this part of the city," said Mark Skogen, President and CEO of Festival Foods.
Similar to Festival Foods' other recently opened locations in Menasha and Somers, Wisconsin, the store has a dining deck above the Deli and a conference room available to the community at no charge.
Guests also will find a built-in Brat Barn and the Tot Spot, a supervised play area for children ages 18 months to 7 years. The Tot Spot is available at no charge while parents and guardians shop at Festival Foods.
This store is among the most energy efficient of all Festival Foods locations and uses Solstice® N40, one of the latest reduced-global-warming refrigerants, to cool its many refrigerated cases. LED lighting throughout the store and more natural light than many other Festival Foods locations will bring additional energy savings.
Guests who are familiar with Festival Foods will recognize the store's extensive selection of groceries, meats, seafood, produce, and natural and organic foods, as well as fresh sushi, salad and hot food bars, large deli and catering services.
According to Skogen, the new store exemplifies Festival Foods’ continuing commitment to selection, exceptional value 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. “This store offers another option for our Green Bay guests who want value-driven pricing, a wide selection that includes healthy choices, and a great shopping experience.”
During events this week, Festival Foods also donated $10,000 to the Twin Homes build for Habitat for Humanity. The donation will help provide six families with a brand new home built by the organization. Along with supporting this build of the Twin Homes, Festival Foods will assist with Habitat for Humanity's 100th build, as well as supply volunteers to assist in the finishing build in June 2017.
