We are so excited to bring Whole Foods Market on as a sponsor for ShiftCon 2015! They will be supplying all kinds of food for different parts of the conference, including dairy, pasta, and more!
Whole Foods Market is a leader in the quality food business. Their motto — Whole Foods, Whole People, Whole Planet — emphasizes that their vision reaches far beyond just being a food retailer. It is obvious in every Whole Food’s store, that their focus is not only on being the place to buy high-quality foods, but also a place for community support and education.
Whole Foods Market was founded in Austin, Texas, when four local businesspeople decided the natural foods industry was ready for a supermarket format. Our founders were John Mackey and Renee Lawson Hardy, owners of Safer Way Natural Foods, and Craig Weller and Mark Skiles, owners of Clarksville Natural Grocery. The original Whole Foods Market opened in 1980 with a staff of only 19 people. Today they have more than 420 stores throughout the US, UK, and Canada, and over 90,000 employees.
We are so excited to have Whole Foods Market as part of the ShiftCon 2015! For more information or to thank them for joining the ShiftCon family, visit their website, or connect with them on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram! And be sure to stop by their expo booth as well!
