Your Co-op is Recruting a General Manager

In order to take the Yelm Food Co-op to the next level, the Board of Directors has decided to seek a professional cooperative grocery manager to become the YFC General Manager.

Ideally, this person has cooperatives in their blood and will want the challenge of taking the existing, successful retail store into its next 5 years of growth and profitability and of service to our members, our customers and our community.

We are now in our 5th year and we just keep growing! Growth brings both opportunities and challenges and this is when it’s time to bring in an expert. Everyone involved so far has done an incredible job of growing us from a little shop with a few products and under 100 members to a growing, profitable store in a new location doing more than three quarters of a million dollars in sales and a membership pushing 1,100!

We need to keep the momentum going and we need to have it going in the right direction. If you know anyone looking for a really exciting new opportunity, let us know at yfcstrategy@gmail.com.

We currently have ads running on Craigslist and in several other locations and hope to begin interviewing candidates in October for a potential fill in December.

Keep checking back for updates!
