Food solutions company SpartanNash, led by CEO Tony Sarsam, rang the Nasdaq Opening Bell on Thursday in celebration of the Company’s successful execution of its Our Winning Recipe driven by a People First culture.
Sarsam was joined by members of the SpartanNash executive team and other senior leaders from across the Company. The ringing of the opening bell took place in New York City and was broadcast live on CNBC, Bloomberg, Fox Business and other national news networks. Headshots of SpartanNash Associates across all levels of the organization were displayed on the seven-story Nasdaq Tower in Times Square.
“What began with a small candy store in 1885 has evolved into a global enterprise that is essential to America’s food supply chain,” Sarsam said. “We have served our communities throughout changing periods in history – and perhaps none more so than through the pandemic. SpartanNash and our 17,500 Associates have been executing with excellence and have orchestrated a remarkable turnaround. Now, we are transforming and pivoting for growth. Every day, every week and every month – we are playing to win.”
The Nasdaq Opening Bell Ceremony took place following the Company’s first-ever Investor Day on Nov. 2, where Sarsam joined Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer Jason Monaco and other members of the Company’s executive team to present more details about its Our Winning Recipe™ and long-term financial targets.
“At SpartanNash, we understand that when our customers win, our investors win,” Monaco said. “As a food solutions company, continuing to innovate and advocate for what is best for consumers remains a top priority. We believe our strategic approach will help capture share, drive results and increase value for our shareholders.”
