Have you ever heard of Whole Foods Market? They are rather popular in the Southern states and I was surprised to read that is where they originated.
Whole Foods Market is known for their tough quality standards on artificial food preservatives, sustainable seafood, animal welfare, antibiotics in meat and pesticides in vegetables. Which means? They do not allow hydrogenated fats, high fructose corn syrup, or artificial colors, flavors, preservatives or sweeteners in any food they sell. To secure this is done while helping the local area they have an entire team dedicated to the region! It’s not just putting products on the shelves,they cultivate local partners and even offer loans help local producers grow and flourish together. They offer digital app coupons and weekly sale flyers! Leaving us customers with a better expectation of what we eat while getting the best value for our money.
After looking into the Values and mission statements of Whole Foods Market, I am so excited. Why do you ask? A store will be opening in the local Western New York area! Buffalo, NY is located by functioning agricultural dairy, beef and produce farms. It seems only fitting to have one in this area.
As I browsed the website, I found some other wonderful contributions to the area. The Whole Foods Market Buffalo will also create approximately 165 new jobs in the area. If you are a interested candidate you can apply for open positions HERE. The area could use some jobs with a company that ranks high in employers. Wouldn’t you agree?
Another great asset of the new store is restaurant-quality prepared foods, including hot and seasonal salad bar offerings, sushi and convenient grab-and-go dished meals. Buffalo, NY is a busy city during the day, now, locals can stop and grab a quick healthier lunch and be on their way. Rotating microbrews from local Western New York breweries and a full menu will be in Bar 1818 as well. Sit and enjoy an adult beverage or have a great place to meet clients for work.
All around the store will have a positive impact to the area. By combining local businesses to work together, providing jobs and giving healthier grocery options to the public.
