Event Description: 

Every year our members nominate top store manager talent from their stores as part of our Store Manager Award program.

Join us as we recognize and celebrate the 2023 finalists, who stand out for their dedication, community commitment and innovation. 

Awards are given to outstanding managers who generate sales growth, effectively communicate company and store goals and objectives, demonstrate team leadership in their store/company, provide exceptional customer service through in-store programs and improve community relations.

Heather Garlich, FMI senior vice president for communications, marketing & consumer/community affairs, and Brian Sappington, The Coca-Cola Company president of North America retail portfolio, will announce the four category winners and the People’s Pick recipient.
