EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (WEAU)--A local grocer is recognized for his excellence in the grocery industry.

Mike Buck, the CEO of Mega Foods in Eau Claire, was honored by the Wisconsin Grocers Association with the Excellence in Operations Award, and the whole thing was a surprise.

Mike's family and the Mega team were waiting with cake and balloons in hand to present him the award. The president of WGA says only a select few people are honored each year.

"Mike is nominated because of the great work he's obviously done in putting this fantastic store together. He's nominated for the work he does with his associates and the team meetings and the motivations that he provides. He's recognized for some of his work in the fresh area, plus his 25 years in the grocery experience really set him aside," says Brandon Scholz, WGA President and CEO.

"It really is humbling because this award might've been something with my name attached to it but it's the 650 teammates out there that's been a part of this, I wouldn't have this without them," said Mike Buck, CEO of Mega.

A formal award will be presented at the chairman's banquet at the Wisconsin Dells in September.
