    The family-owned and -operated company is the Hogwarts of grocery stores. Employees are “encouraged to have fun on a daily basis” and “thanked and celebrated all the time.” The company invests in professional development, promotes from within, and spent $400,000 last year on parties and events—including a white water rafting trip for the entire company.
