Grocer of the Year

September 11, 2014 9:06 AM

Congratulations to Mark Skogen, President and CEO of Festival Foods, for being named Wisconsin's Grocer of the Year for 2014. As you probably know, Festival Foods will soon be building a store on East Washington Avenue. The groundbreaking will be held on September 16th and the store is planned to open in the summer of 2015.

Mark Skogen has created a reputation of employee support through stock ownership plans, associate discount cards, and reimbursement programs for tuition and fitness memberships. Unsurprisingly, this is not the first time Mark Skogen has been recognized for his efforts and dedication to community outreach. Under his leadership, Festival Foods was the recipient of the American Foundation of Counseling Services' Ethics in Business Award in 2013.

I am glad to welcome Festival Foods to Madison and thank them for their lasting commitment to giving back to the community.
