New convenience store location offers new job openings with competitive wages.
A grand opening ceremony is slated to take place on Jan. 29, 2016 to welcome the newest Rutter’s store to Lancaster County, Pa. The new location marks the addition of the chain’s 62nd store, and it is located at 370 West Main Street Leola, Pa. The grand opening ceremony will take place between 1:30 and 3:30 p.m.
Like the recent York Springs, Pa. location, the Leola, Pa. store has revamped exterior branding and a large footprint at 7,500 square feet. There are 16 pumps for gas and auto diesel, and a separate dedicated island with three high-speed truck diesel fueling pumps. A unique component to the Leola, Pa. location is eight spaces dedicated for horse and buggy parking. This will be the second store to offer this feature to customers.
Inside, the store emphasizes a spacious 35 person seating area along with free Wi-Fi for all Rutter’s customers. The coolers will showcase premium Rutter’s quality milk from locally sourced dairy’s, and over 10 different Rutter’s tea options. In the food service area Rutter’s full menu is available day and night. Options such as first-cut pastrami, BBQ short rib and fresh food options like fruit, salads and wraps only scratch the surface of the menu. Leola, Pa. will also be offering a gourmet coffee bar featuring espressos, lattes, fruit smoothies and more. Like many other Rutter’s locations, the new store will be open 24 hours a day seven days a week to accommodate any and all customer needs.
“Looking into the New Year, Rutter’s wants to continue to expand our business to additional communities. Developing Rutter’s brand in new areas allows for even more customers to experience our signature offerings, and creates strong economic growth. We are excited to meet the needs of consumers in Lancaster County, Pa. and tailoring our offerings to meet the needs of local customers is a standard we strive to uphold.” said Derek Gaskins, Rutter’s chief customer officer.
On Nov. 30, 2015, Rutter’s increased wages for all team members to start at $10 an hour, which is much higher than the minimum wage currently set at $7.25 an hour. With the expansion of new store locations in the surrounding area, there are many positions available at multiple locations.
With roots dating back to 1747, Rutter’s 268 year history makes it the oldest vertically-integrated food company in the U.S. Rutter’s is currently guided by the family’s third generation of leadership with Scott Hartman president and CEO, Todd Rutter as president of Rutter’s Dairy and Tim Rutter as president of M&G Realty.
