business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Food Marketing Institute (FMI) announced a call for entries in the 2011 FMI Store Manager Awards, an annual program recognizing supermarket store managers who generate sales growth, provide great customer service, contribute to attaining company goals and are an integral part of the communities they serve. The awards program will take place at Future Connect™, the industry leadership education event, May 10-12, 2011 in Dallas, TX.

Companies are invited to submit stories that demonstrate how a store manager created positive growth and customer satisfaction during the past 12-18 months. Entries will be scored based on the overall content and the store manager’s ability to generate sales growth and positively impact the overall business of the store, go above and beyond the ordinary to provide customer service and community relations, execute innovative in-store programs and special events that improve overall customer service and community relations, demonstrate a balance between people skills and operations skills, and lead or mentor the team members from their store.
