As Festival Foods grows as a company, we want our associates to grow with us.
That’s why we’ve got a wide variety of programs to help associates move up, get ahead and try out different things.
We have many associates who start working with us part time — many times on the front end — whether they start by bagging groceries or working as a cashier. As they get ready for college, the Festival Foods’ …
It’s not often you walk into a grocery store with a designated area for kids to play while parents shop.
The Tot Spot at Festival Foods is just that. It’s a fun place for kids between 18 months and 7 years old to play for up to one hour while parents do their grocery shopping. We have a Tot Spot in many of our stores …
Halloween is going to be an extra-special celebration for us this year! That’s because Boofest, our annual Halloween party for kids at our stores across the state, actually falls ON Halloween.
Consider Boofest a warm-up for kids under 8 to the ‘real’ trick-or-treating that comes later that day. At this event, we offer activities and treats for kids at stations across our stores. Kids …
As Festival Foods prepares to open new stores in 2016, we’re talking to a lot of people about working with our great company.
Among the most common we get: “Can I really make a career out of a job at a grocery store?” The answer is a resounding ‘YES!’ You may not think that’s possible, but I did it. I made a career out of …
It’s almost time.
The best baggers among our associates went head to head this summer to determine who moves on to the state competition in Milwaukee. And now the Great Wisconsin Bag-Off, set for Wednesday, Oct. 14, is just days away.

At Festival Foods, we have two options at the checkouts – You Bag lanes and We Bag …
The recent run of hot days here in Wisconsin generated some intense thunderstorms and left thousands without power for various lengths of time.
During outages like this, people often think about how they will get their garage door open, keep the kids entertained, or prevent all the food in the refrigerator from spoiling. In a grocery store, we have some of the same concerns when …
Now that we’re into August, the countdown to the new school year is officially underway.
That means shiny new school supplies, a pantry full of snacks as well as breakfast and lunch options and new ways to help your local school.
Our friends at General Mills are turning its products, including its delicious snacks and cereals and other items you’re already purchasing for the new school year, into money for your local school. The General …
Texting is now a way of life, right?
It’s a quick way to communicate, get information and now it’s a way to win money for you AND your school. We’re teaming up with Kellogg’s to bring you an amazing text-to-win contest that could mean $500 for you and $1,500 for your school.

We love making things easy for our guests.
In fact, one of our company’s core values is “recognize and react to guests’ needs.” Seems pretty straight forward, right?
