McCaffrey’s Food Markets Named 2017 Winner for Overall Outstanding Fresh Excellence in the 5th Annual Progressive Grocer Outstanding Independent Awards

LANGHORNE, PA — February 9, 2017 – McCaffrey’s Food Markets announced that it has been named the 2017 Winner for Overall Outstanding Fresh Excellence in the 5th Annual Outstanding Independent Awards. The award is presented by Progressive Grocer to honor operators who excel in a variety of categories – from Overall New Concept Design to Overall Outstanding Fresh Excellence.

McCaffrey’s operates six locations – two in New Jersey and four in Pennsylvania. Two of its stores opened within the past year, a 50,000 square-foot store in Blue Bell, PA and a new concept, smaller format, 13,000 square-foot Simply Fresh by McCaffrey’s in Doylestown, PA. Each McCaffrey’s department boasts fresh, high-quality products with as much local and organic as possible.

“Customers are demanding ‘fresh,’” says Jim McCaffrey III, company President. “Whether it’s made-to-order crepes prepared in front of you or cheese brought in as wheels and cut on site by our cheesemongers, our focus is on fresh in every department.”

McCaffrey’s Prepared Food Department has seen an exceptional increase in business. Most of the items are prepared in the grocer’s 33,000-square-foot, Langhorne, PA commissary to help control the quality and consistency of products, which are then finished in the stores. Further, all of McCaffrey’s Department Directors have partnered with a number of area farmers or suppliers for local sourcing. Since McCaffrey’s is not spread out too far physically between stores, what’s local for one store is legitimately local for the others.

McCaffrey’s will be recognized at a dedicated reception at the National Grocers Association show in Las Vegas this year. Complete coverage of this year’s Outstanding Independent honorees can be found in Progressive Grocer’s February 2017 print issue.
