WOODLAND — For the sixth year running, local family-owned and operated Nugget Markets has once again made Fortune magazine’s listing of the “100 Best Companies to Work For” in the nation (www.Fortune.com/bestcompanies/2011).

Nugget Markets, which has a store in El Dorado Hills, ranks No. 8 among the country’s top 100 companies.

Known for its devotion to its people and community, Nugget Markets consistently nurtures a company culture and commitment to quality that are both positive and long lasting. Nugget Markets values a family-oriented work environment; one that supports a healthy work/life balance. In turn, the work atmosphere at every level of the company is marked by highly motivated associates with positive attitudes, making for a truly fun and dynamic work place.

“Our associates define who we are,” said Eric Stille, president and CEO of Nugget Market Inc. “Without the undeniably creative, energetic, upbeat attitudes of our diverse family of associates, we wouldn’t be the company we are today.  We’re incredibly grateful to work with such a talented group.”

Nugget Markets leaders make it a priority to empower all associates to be the best they can be by offering educational opportunities, growth-in-leadership training, job execution excellence incentives, and achievement recognition for exhibiting outstanding leadership, performance, and initiative. The company also offers outstanding benefits and wages, and Nugget “servant leaders” maintain an open-door policy, whereby associates are welcome and encouraged to share ideas and concerns with honest dialog.

Nugget Market Inc. has been family owned and operated since 1926, and has nine Northern California locations in Woodland, Davis, Sacramento, West Sacramento, Roseville, Elk Grove, El Dorado Hills and Vacaville.  The company’s three Food 4 Less stores are located in Vallejo, Cameron Park and Woodland.
