Thank you to our loyal and hard-working Team Members

To honor Supermarket Employee Day, and to recognize our Team Members for their commitment to our customers and our local communities, Cardenas Markets is providing lunch to every Team Member across our geographical footprint on Feb. 22, 2022. We are grateful and appreciative of their hard work and dedication. Thank you! 

Supermarkets are the backbone of our communities.

  • The food industry feeds families and enriches lives, and supermarkets are the cornerstone of their communities. 
  • There are more than 40,000 stores that sell food and grocery items in the U.S. alone. 
  • Millions of supermarket employees come to work daily to keep shelves stocked and to provide communities with essential services that help them survive and thrive. 
  • Despite supply chain disruptions or workforce reductions, supermarket employees have demonstrated trojan efforts to keep communities going. 
  • Supermarket employees have personified compassion and courage when communities have most needed to be encouraged. 
  • Supermarket employees have redefined the term “community service.”

Supermarket employees have always been frontline heroes during periods of crisis.

  • In the face of crisis, such as natural disasters, supermarket employees sustain communities. 
  • Supermarket employees maintain the critical pipeline of food and consumer goods that sustain the health and well-being of their customers. 
  • Supermarkets have provided a social outlet during the pandemic.  For many, the grocery store was the only place they could go outside of work or home. 

Supermarket employees are helping us to stay strong during the COVID-19 pandemic.

  • At a time when many businesses were forced to close their doors or lay off workers, grocery stores increased their total number of employees by 10%, or roughly 500,000 individuals.
  • Grocery stores are part of the fabric of their communities — and that’s a commitment we take seriously. Its why stores have taken every step possible to safely serve customers and preserve jobs even during the darkest moments of this crisis.
  • As they have since day one of the pandemic, supermarkets continue to make the investments necessary to keep their doors open, respond to consumer and community needs, maintain safe environments for employees and customers, and find ways to make an impact throughout their communities.
