The Ohio Grocers Association recently announced Buehler’s Fresh Foods has been selected as the winner of this year’s Pinnacle Award. The OGA award is based on overall excellence in retail operations and is the highest award given by the Ohio Grocers Association.

The Pinnacle Award is given annually to both a small and large operation, recognizing exceptional creativity, merchandising, innovation, human resources, community relations and overall successful operations.

“Every year OGA’s Pinnacle Award selection committee chooses two companies to recognize as an outstanding retail organization. Recipients are outstanding in every way — from operations, to community involvement, to everything in between — and no one exemplifies this more than the Buehler organization," said Kristin Mullins, president/CEO of the OGA. "The Ohio Grocers Association is so pleased and honored to have this organization, not only as a part of Ohio’s grocery industry, but as a member of our organization as they are an outstanding example of excellence and are so deserving of this recognition.”

“On behalf of all our employees, we are very thankful to receive this year’s Ohio Grocers Association Pinnacle Award for Large Operators," said Dan Shanahan, president and CEO of Buehler's. "We are great admirers of Kristen Mullins, her team and the job they do for Ohio grocers, which makes this award even more meaningful.”

The award will be officially presented to Buehler’s at the Ohio Grocers Association annual Ohio Brown Bag Celebration this spring.

Buehler’s Fresh Foods is an employee-owned company and operates 13 Buehler’s Fresh Foods Ohio supermarkets with locations in Wooster (two), Orrville, Wadsworth, Medina (two), Ashland, New Philadelphia, Dover, Jackson Township (Canton), Coshocton, Portage Lakes (Green) and Massillon.
