Originally published in: The Packer

Nugget Markets has landed in the No. 99 spot on Fortune’s latest “100 Best Companies to Work For” list, marking the family-owned grocer’s 18th year of recognition in the list.

“I am so proud of the way all 2,100 of our associates come together and create something very special at Nugget Market," Eric Stille, executive chairman and fourth generation of Nugget Market’s founding family, said in a news release.

Nugget Markets says it earned a spot on the list following anonymous surveys from its associates and several in-depth responses to questions surrounding culture, values, strategy, associate involvement and leadership.

"We are an extended family of unique individuals who work hard, laugh, grow and support one another. At this company, building Trust with one another and our guests is key to our success," Stille said. "Our three company goals are guest satisfaction, constant improvement and to be a world-class employer. It takes every associate coming together to achieve these lofty goals. I am so proud of our Nugget Market family."

The company has also been recognized by Great Place to Work in previous years as one of the nation’s Best Workplaces in Retail and the Bay Area, along with one of the Best Workplaces for Millennials, Women, Parents and Diversity, and one of People’s Companies that Care, the release said.

“The Stille family set the foundation for Nugget Market’s culture nearly 100 years ago and it has stood the test of time due to the commitment of our amazing associates, past and present, to live our values on a daily basis,” Greg Hill, president and CEO of Nugget Market, said in the release. “It is part of our DNA to serve each other along with our guests and that culture generates a momentum that has fueled generations of success.”

Family-owned and -operated since 1926, Nugget Markets is a full-line grocery store in Northern California that provides the highest-quality perishables and organics, chef-prepared foods, specialty grocery items and conventional goods.

The Nugget Market Inc. family of stores includes 16 locations: 13 Nugget Markets in Northern California, Fork Lift by Nugget Markets in Cameron Park, Food 4 Less Woodland, and Sonoma Market in Sonoma, with a new Nugget Market planned for Rocklin in the spring of 2025, the company said.
