Rutter’s Adds New Role of Fresh and Local Category Manager

This month, we created a new marketing position on our team for a Fresh and Local Category Manager! Consumers have shown increased demand for local, fresh, and healthier products.  We felt compelled to create a position within our organization to help meet the emerging consumer needs.  We promoted from within and awarded the position to former Food Service Quality Assurance Manager, Cheri Booth!

The Fresh and Local Category Manager will report to the Director of Food Service, Ryan Krebs. She will oversee all aspects of local, fresh procurement including produce, seasonal fruits & vegetables, foodservice, snacks, beverages, beer and wine!

“We are very excited about adding this new role to the Rutter’s Team. Consumers increasingly want more fresh, local, and clean label products. We think that deserves a dedicated person to make sure we are providing our customers with the highest quality local products possible. We know that Cheri will do a great job in this new role and cannot wait to see what the future holds for her and this new position,” said Ryan Krebs, Rutter’s Director of Foodservice.

Rutter’s Rebrands to Celebrate 50 Years of Convenience!

Rutter’s has a deep history with several important milestones!  We trace our roots to 1747 when the family agricultural operations began on our farm.  Then in 1921, the Rutter’s Brothers Dairy company began to serve fresh and local dairy products throughout the region.  Finally, in 1968, the first Rutter’s Farm Store was opened!  This year to commemorate the convenience stores 50th Anniversary, we will no longer be using the “Farm Stores” as part of our trade name.

“We have gone to market in our stores as simply Rutter’s for the past decade.  And as we look to the future, we wanted the focus to be on our brand, and all the ways we engage across physical and virtual channels.  Our stores 50th Anniversary created a great opportunity to formally change our branding to align with customers perceptions of our broad brand offers,” said Derek Gaskins, Rutter’s Chief Customer Officer.

Throughout the year, we will be celebrating the 50th Anniversary with team members, customers, and all the communities the stores service!  There will be plenty of giveaways, special prizes, promotions, and celebrations will tie into the Rutter’s #SummerofFreedom Sweepstakes!

If you’re a loyal Rutter’s customer you know the classic Rutter’s Rewards card discount: $.03 off per gallon every day on fuel and earn additional cents off per gallon by purchasing over 1,800 items throughout the store. Did you know that the VIP card is an upgraded version of the original Rewards Card? There are 3 huge advantages to the VIP card that will make you want to upgrade your card right now:

  • The freedom to go cardless in our stores and at our pumps…we can all do some card de-cluttering from our wallets.
  • Remember Me food ordering – we remember your last 12 orders at our food kiosks so you don’t have to.
  • Special, VIP-only offers and discounts AND the ability to choose which offers you add to your loyalty wallet. So, on top of the 1800+ items you normally earned cents off fuel with the Rewards Card, you now can get even more VIP exclusive items.
