When you join our team, we don’t just gain a new associate. We gain diverse perspectives, innovative ideas and limitless potential that helps us do more for the people we serve. And while we grow, so can you—see for yourself all there is to gain at Wakefern.

A mission that makes you proud

We work together to empower family-owned businesses and help communities thrive. From a small, local cooperative that began with eight grocery store owners, we’ve grown into the largest retailer-owned cooperative in the US. And we’re just getting started.


A culture that lifts you up

Wakefern associates represent equal parts ambition and heart. Our support for our communities and business partners is only matched by our support for one another, in both our professional and personal lives.


An impact you can feel

Our local roots run deep, laying the foundation for everything we do. We champion a cooperative model that allows independent grocers in our own neighborhoods to compete, and succeed, against multinational chains. We’re committed to nurturing the communities in which we live and work with volunteerism, health and wellness programs, charitable giving and sustainable practices.

A difference you can make

A future you can inspire

And while our focus on local connections fosters a tight-knit family dynamic, we’ve got big resources to fuel what’s next.

So go ahead, find your place at Wakefern.
