Now in its 106th year of operation, the grocery chain based in Rochester, N.Y., has a cultlike following—Wegmaniacs to those in the know. And that’s thanks in large part to its nearly 48,000 store employees who have a deep knowledge of the supermarket’s more than 50,000 products. Employees appreciate the company’s training, as well as its flexible scheduling policy. The privately held operation is also known for its work-scholarship program for high schoolers that incentivizes students to graduate. These kinds of benefits have created a bit of a cultlike following among employees, too. Wendy Gallucci, who manages the Penfield, N.Y., store, describes it as a “family culture”—and she means that literally. The 31-year Wegmans vet has two children who now also work for the company (some 20% of employees are related to someone else who works at the supermarket chain). Wegmans is one of only four companies that have appeared on this list every year since its launch 25 years ago. Read more: Shoppers are obsessed with Publix and Wegmans.
