If you build it…

I’ve been on hiatus from blogging but thought that if anything could get me writing again it would be the opening of a brand new Festival Foods store!

Since the day we finalized the deal and word got out that we were building a Festival Foods in Sheboygan, we received a lot of positive feedback from the community. I believe that people were not only looking forward to shopping in our friendly, clean store but also anticipating the way that Festival gets involved in other areas of the community. We are honored to be open for business and excited to serve those in Sheboygan and the surrouding area.

First, I want to offer a great big thank you to the Festival Foods teammates that have been working hard for months, making sure every last detail was ready for guests on Friday. From those that helped design the store layout to the associates that stocked every last item on our shelves – we couldn’t do it without our amazing associates!

Next I’d like to thank local construction company Jos. Schmitt Construction for buidling us a beautiful facility. Completing an entire store build in just 6 months requires oversight of so many moving pieces and they did it brilliantly. I’d also like to thank all of the local tradesman and sub-contractors that had a hand in creating a space that will allow us to provide the outstanding customer service that the Sheboygan community deserves.

A heartfelt thank you to my wife, Wendy, who has tolerated me through the ups and downs of new store construction. Thank you to my dad, Dave and mom, Barb who ran the family business after my grandfather passed away, making it possible for me to be here today writing to you about a new store for our family business.

The saying “If you build it, they will come” might hold true for one visit to check out the place, but know that Festival is dedicated to delivering an enjoyable shopping experience in Sheboygan that will bring you back again and again. We must earn your business and are ready to do so!

    I shopped at the new Sheboygan store on opening day and was extremely impressed with the attitudes and friendliness of the employees. I expected that from all of the managers around, but was pleasantly surprised to receive that same treatment from all of the newbees working there. Even though it was mobbed, the store looked beautiful, the produce was constantly being refilled and arranged and the Deli and Bakery people could not have been more helpful. I even enjoyed watching for the NuVal numbers on my shopping list. Thank you for coming to Sheboygan.
