Yummy Market, located at 1390 Major Mackenzie Drive West at Dufferin Street in Maple, Ont., garnered the Silver Award in the Specialty Food category at the 2015 Canadian Independent Grocer of the Year Awards held on September 29. The award recognizes the European grocer for its retail excellence in customer service, staff and department management, store layout, merchandising, creativity, cleanliness and community involvement.
Presented by the Canadian Federation of Independent Grocers (CFIG), this annual awards program distinguishes outstanding independent retailers across Canada in each of the Specialty, Large-, Medium- and Small-surface categories. Each participating store was rigorously evaluated for retail excellence in the months leading up to the awards dinner.
Yummy Market’s Maple location holds CFIG’s Bronze Award in the Specialty Food category from last year. Winning the Silver Award this year represents a major milestone for the retailer whose vision is to bring a true European food experience to as many people as possible in the GTA and beyond. “As an independent Canadian food retailer winning this award means a lot to us,” said Alexei Tsvetkov, CEO of Yummy Market. “It is a testament to our hard work and dedication to serving our community. It feeds our passion to continue to delight with a true European food experience.”
