In the ever-tightening market of the buy-side sector, Sprouts Farmers Market has pegged one particular strategy as the key for its next stage of success. The company announced that it will open 35 stores throughout 2017.
“As Sprouts continues to grow, we’re deeply invested in enhancing our operations and developing our team members, so they can deliver the best experience possible for our guests,” said Chief Operations Officer Dan Sanders. “Sprouts team members are inspired by the company’s growth and our ‘healthy living for less’ approach to grocery shopping, and we offer tremendous opportunities for career progression, especially in the Southeast."
The company stated in a press release that the mass expansion will begin in its second quarter of 2017, with 11 new stores spreading across five states. The first spree of new stores will be located at the following places:
Each new store will bring over 100 career opportunities to each local area. Sprouts will release grand opening and hiring information at a later time. Immediate opportunities are available here.
Sprouts also stated that the company will donate unsold and edible groceries that cannot be marketed to its Food Rescue Program. Through this program, relief agencies will pick up food, and donate it to families in need rather than letting it go to waste.
Sprouts’ website also indicated that it has already planned locations opening soon in California, Arizona, Georgia, North Carolina, and Florida.
