The Food Marketing Institute (FMI) has revealed the winners of its 2017 Store Manager Awards at the Future Leaders eXperience event, taking place June 11-13 in Chicago. The winners were chosen from 100 nominees.

“In today’s shifting food retail landscape, store managers must possess a unique mixture of skills to keep their stores on a successful path of smooth operations, quality customer service, meaningful community involvement and inviting shopping atmosphere,” noted Leslie G. Sarasin, president and CEO of Arlington, Va.-based FMI. “It’s clear the exemplary leadership demonstrated by each of the winners inspires their teams to daily do their best, lean into challenges and stay a step ahead.”

The 2017 Store Manager Awards winners each receive a $1,000 prize and a crystal award. In addition to its traditional awards, FMI once more offered the People’s Pick Facebook contest, which this year garnered more than 6,900 votes. The People’s Pick winner gets a special trophy and $500 to celebrate his or her store’s employees.
