Buehler’s Fresh Foods will be giving over $740,000 in holiday bonuses to all eligible hourly and salaried employees as a token of its appreciation for employees that continue to work hard amidst the COVID-19 pandemic.
“Considered essential workers our employees continue to amaze and inspire as they show up every week, perform their jobs and keep food on everyone’s plate” said Dan Shanahan, President and CEO of Buehler’s Fresh Foods. “We are pleased to be in a position to give these holiday bonuses”.
The bonuses will be paid to employees on Thursday, December 17th. All seasonal, part-time and full-time employees are eligible for the bonus as long as they are actively working through the pandemic and also have been employed for at least 90 days at Buehler’s.
This is the second initiative taken by Buehler’s this year to provide its employees with some financial relief during the pandemic. Buehler’s is grateful to be able to support its employees as they continue to serve our communities in these uncertain times.
Buehler’s Fresh Foods was founded in 1929 by E.L. Buehler and his wife, Helen. The family moved the business in 1932 to Wooster, Ohio, and after four generations, grew to 13 stores serving the northeast Ohio market. In 2017, Buehler’s became an ESOP – employee stock ownership program – with the belief that selling to their own employees was the best way to assure the continuation of its legacy, which made the chain a benchmark for independent grocers.
