EMERYVILLE, Calif., Dec. 1, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Grocery Outlet Bargain Market, the nation's fastest-growing, extreme-value grocery retailer, announces the launch of its independent operator recruitment website that provides information about the brand, store leadership, and how easy it is to create your own business as an independent operator.
This unique business opportunity enables aspiring entrepreneurs, skilled grocery, retail, and food service veterans to operate a Grocery Outlet Bargain Market independently under a license from the parent company and be part of the respected Grocery Outlet brand. The new site provides resources on all facets of the process, including: how the model works, investment requirements, earning potential, available territories, an initial application, and current independent operator testimonials.
"We are free to create a retail store with products and practices that are right for our customers and we use our own creativity and ingenuity to build a business that makes a difference in our community," says Travis Dawson, who independently operates a Grocery Outlet in San Francisco with his wife, Rose. "Grocery Outlet wants us to be successful. This is an incredible partnership and Grocery Outlet independent operators very rarely leave the business. I'm often asked what I enjoy most about being and independent store operator—and it's the quality of life. My family is involved in the community and we are empowered to make decisions that are right for us and our customers."
Grocery Outlet Bargain Market offers the same trusted brands such as Kraft, Kellogg's, Tide, Tyson, Amy's Kitchen, Naked Juice and many more with prices up to 60 percent off traditional supermarkets.
