(RELEASE FROM FESTIVAL FOODS)-- Skogen’s Festival Foods announced today that they will be expanding their business into two new Wisconsin communities.
Festival Foods announced that it intends to purchase Vos Sentry Foods in Fort Atkinson, WI, and begin operations of the store in February 2014. Jim Vos has operated this store for 36 years and has become a key part of the community. “We are honored to be carrying on the tradition of a family owned grocer in Fort Atkinson and look forward to continuing the high standards Jim Vos established in this community,” said Mark Skogen, President and CEO of Festival Foods.
In addition, through a partnership with Gebhardt Development, Festival Foods plans to open a new state-of-the-art grocery store in Madison, WI in 2015. The store will be part of a larger development at the 800N block of East Washington Street. “This project will be different than any store we currently operate, but we are excited and look forward to bringing Madison our signature clean stores, friendly people, quality products and enjoyable shopping experience.”
More details about both projects will be announced as they become available.
