Skogen’s Festival Foods will open its newest location Aug. 12 at 1275 Bell Avenue in Hartford, Wisconsin. The store will be open daily from 5 a.m. – 10 p.m.
Mark Skogen, president and CEO of Festival Foods, said the company is excited to expand to Hartford and serve new guests who seek selection, value and service excellence.
“Our goal is to provide an enjoyable shopping experience for every Festival Foods guest,” Skogen said. “It’s an honor to join the Hartford community, and we’re looking forward to providing our newest guests with excellent product quality and exceptional value.”
Shoppers will find the grocer’s traditional offerings — a scratch bakery, large deli, meat and sustainable seafood selections, hot food bar, organic foods, wine and spirits and take-home meals. Catering, online shopping and store pickup services are also available.
With a roster of 250 employees, the Hartford Festival Foods is the first in the chain’s history to offer a Caribou Coffee drive-through for guests on the go. Located near the front entrance is a prepared fresh food lineup and seating area, where shoppers can enjoy a meal or snack, such as Asian stir-fry, Hissho Sushi, pizza and gourmet popcorn.
The Hartford store will feature the latest energy-saving equipment and offer a brat stand for nonprofit fundraisers.
Part-time and full-time positions are available at the Hartford location. More information regarding openings is available by visiting festfoods.com/careers.
