Why: People who work in the food service industry, particularly restaurants, lost their jobs during the pandemic. They were hired by supermarkets until their previous employers started opening back up. Now that those businesses are opening back up, these workers are returning to their former positions, leaving vacancies. “The grocery business is strong, and never dropped,” said Ralph Woodward, Senior Vice President of Bashas’ Family of Stores. “We gained customer traffic and are looking to add to our store teams.”
Who: Bashas' Family of Stores – the family-owned grocer that operates Food City, AJ's Fine Foods, Eddie's
Country Store, and both Bashas' and Bashas' Diné supermarkets – is an Arizona-based company
founded by brothers Ike and Eddie Basha, Sr. With more than 100 grocery stores, it is one of the
largest employers in the state and one of the Best Places to Work in Arizona. Since the company's
inception in 1932, Bashas' has given back more than $100 million to the communities it serves. For
