Preizkus v trgovini brez zaposlenih je bil preveč mamljiv

Wikimedia/Nan Palmero

Nekatere prodajalne na Kitajskem so po preizkusu modela brez zaposlenih imele približno 20 odstotkov.

Večina strank je prijaznih in poštenih ljudi, vendar se je skušnjavi nekoliko težko upreti, saj je ta trgovina odkrila ta teden, potem ko je preizkusila brezpilotno trgovino z avtomatskim odjavnim strojem in izgubila precej denarja, ko so nekateri kupcev je zmanjkalo brez plačila.

Po poročanju Rocket News 24 sta dve trgovini v Hangzhouu in Pekingu ta teden zamenjali svoje redno osebje z avtomatskimi plačilnimi stroji in oglaševali trgovine, ki se opirajo na sistem časti. Stranke so imele možnost, da plačajo s telefonom ali pustijo denar v škatli za plačilo prigrizkov in pijač, večina strank v trgovinah pa je storila prav to. Toda nekaj jih je našlo drugo pot in odletelo.

Poročali so, da so tri stranke izbirale vrhunske izdelke in nato odšle brez plačila, druga pa je vzela nekaj vrhunskega blaga in nato pustila le 10 juanov ali 1,61 dolarja. Trgovine so povedale, da so se med enodnevnim preizkusom skupaj skrajšale za približno 20 odstotkov ali približno 485 dolarjev.

Večina kupcev se je vseeno odločila za plačilo, zato v trgovinah pravijo, da menijo, da je poskus uspešen. Samopostrežni stroji bodo verjetno postali še bolj priljubljeni v trgovinah, vendar bi bilo morda dobro, če bi vsaj enega uslužbenca odvrnili, da bi tatove odvrnili.

Stran 1

Vprašanje 1 1. Katerih je pet vrst etičnega podnebja?

Skrbna, neodvisna, provocirajoča, pravila in zakoni.

Pravila, postopki, politike, zakoni in skrb.

Instrumentalna, neodvisna, odločilna, pravila ter zakon in red.

Instrumental, skrb, zakon in red, pravila in neodvisnost.

Vprašanje 2 2. Bob rešuje težave. Kakšna etična klima bi bila zanj najboljša?

Vprašanje 3 3. Povečanje plač in plač zaposlenih v podjetju v Mehiki bi koristilo družbi kot celoti. Na katerem od naslednjih pristopov k etičnemu odločanju temelji ta logika?

Vprašanje 4 4. Vodja podjetja Primo se je odločil izboljšati delovne pogoje zaposlenih le zato, ker bi prekinitev vezi s FCB finančno škodila podjetju in njegovim zaposlenim. Na katerem pristopu k etičnemu odločanju temelji odločitev managerja?

Vprašanje 5 5. Čeprav so najpomembnejše skrbi delničarja pogosto drugačne od skrbi neposrednega deležnika, lahko konflikt ublažimo in ga preoblikujemo v scenarij, v katerem vse zmaga:

Dostop do ustreznih denarnih rezerv in revolving kreditne linije

Izvršno vodstvo, ki uvaja etično vodenje

Sprejetje zakonodajne in regulativne zaščite

Prisotnost močnega sindikata

Stran 2

Vprašanje 6 6. Katera od naslednjih trditev je napačna?

Na neposredne in posredne deležnike vplivajo odločitve organizacije, vendar na splošno drži, da nobena od njih nima lastniškega interesa, ki je predvsem finančne narave.

V nekaterih primerih, tako kot študentje plačujejo šolo, da bi dosegli višje plačano delovno mesto, lahko ljudje, ki imajo vlogo zainteresirane strani, spremenijo svoj položaj v subjektu in postanejo delničar tudi s finančnimi interesi.

Etično odločanje igra ključno vlogo pri zagotavljanju, da imajo vse zainteresirane strani koristi hkrati.

Praktično je nemogoče obogatiti delničarje, če tega ne storite na račun različnih deležnikov.

Vprašanje 7 7. Ko se v podjetju soočate z etično dilemo, je najpomembnejši vidik odločitve:

Zagotavljanje, da ljudje vedno počnejo tisto, kar je v njihovem interesu, in noče sodelovati v dejanjih, ki ne koristijo vsem vpletenim

Postavitev vrednosti avtonomije nad druga etična načela

S sistematičnim procesom ovrednotite vse vidike, preden izberete način ukrepanja

Plačilo za poštenost zaposlenih

Avtorji: Clara Xiaoling Chen (Univerza v Illinoisu) in Tatiana Sandino (Univerza v Južni Kaliforniji)

Založnik: Revija za računovodske raziskave, letn. 50, ne. 4

Datum objave: Septembra 2012

V skladu s to študijo maloprodajnih delavcev je zaradi večjih plač zaposlenih manj verjetno, da bodo ukradli police ali oropali blagajno, ki je tudi pokazala, da bi skoraj 40 odstotkov višjega nadomestila lahko nadomestili z prihranki zaradi zmanjšane tatvine. Vključno s stranskimi učinki, kot sta zmanjšana fluktuacija zaposlenih in stroški usposabljanja pri novih zaposlitvah, bi lahko podjetja izplačala celo potencialno neto dobiček, če bi svojim zaposlenim plačala več, pravijo avtorji. Ugotovitve tudi empirično ponazarjajo, kako lahko višje plače prispevajo k krepitvi poštenosti in etičnih standardov zaposlenih.

Kraja zaposlenih predstavlja za ameriška podjetja 200 milijard ameriških dolarjev letne izgube. Težava je še posebej huda v sektorju trgovine na drobno, storitev, hrane in proizvodov široke potrošnje. (Približno 35 odstotkov zaposlenih v maloprodajnih trgovinah v ZDA je priznalo, da kradejo od njihovih podjetij, glede na prejšnjo študijo.) V teh okoliščinah delavcev ni vedno mogoče učinkovito spremljati in njihova relativno nizka raven nadomestila ni vedno dovolj močna spodbuda za odvračanje od tatvine.

Prejšnje raziskave so se v veliki meri osredotočile na učinke, ki jih imajo lahko višje plače na druge vidike vedenja zaposlenih, kot je njihova pripravljenost ostati v podjetju. Ta članek primerja podatke iz več velikih trgovskih verig. Ugotavlja, da razlika v tem, kaj zaposleni zaslužijo za enaka dela v podobnih podjetjih v isti regiji, vpliva na to, koliko denarja in zalog manjka.

Študija iz leta 1990 je pokazala, da se je tatvina zalog povečala med zaposlenimi na drobno po 15 -odstotnem znižanju plač, ti delavci pa so ukradli več kot kolegi, ki jim odškodnina ni bila znižana. Toda takšna poševnica odškodnine je nenaden šok, v katerem se ta dokument osredotoča namesto na dobro uveljavljeno plačno strukturo in njihov odnos do tatvine zaposlenih v daljšem obdobju.

Analiza avtorjev & rsquo je temeljila predvsem na podatkih, zbranih v letih 2004 in 2005 iz več kot 250 trgovin v 31 velikih verigah, ter intervjujih z devetimi vodji podjetij. Trgovine s posebnimi potrebami so bile izbrane, ker gre za podjetja z nizkimi maržami in velikim obsegom, ki običajno trpijo zaradi razširjene tatvine zaposlenih, kar je mogoče izslediti zaradi pomanjkanja denarja in zalog. Prav tako so optimalna nastavitev za preučitev vpliva vrstnikov na vedenje, saj je v nekaterih trgovinah zaposlen en delavec, v drugih pa dva ali trije delavci v izmeni.

Avtorji so nadzorovali številne dejavnike, vključno z značilnostmi in sklopi zaposlenih v vsaki trgovini & rsquos (merjeno z anketami njihovih menedžerjev), kako pogosto so nadzorniki zapustili ali zamenjali, stopnjo brezposelnosti, statistiko lokalnega kriminala in plače delavcev v primerjavi s tistimi v drugi na podobnih delovnih mestih v isti regiji. Overall, the authors found, employees earning $1 more in hourly wages (for doing the same jobs at different companies) stole significantly less.

One reason the authors advance is that employees who are earning more relative to their peers in the region could be highly motivated to keep their job and demonstrate loyalty to the company. The authors conducted a cost-benefit analysis to determine whether the dollar savings from reducing employee theft justified paying higher wages. They calculated that direct savings on lost inventory and cash account for 39 percent of the wage increases. When other benefits from a pay hike are factored in &mdash such as retaining more employees, cutting down on training costs, and getting better effort from workers &mdash the wage increases may prove to be a wash or even produce a financial gain.

&ldquoIf the other benefits from wage increases translate into at least 61% of the cost of the wage increase, an employer may find it economically beneficial to raise employee wages,&rdquo the authors write. This is a realistic threshold for many of the chains in the study, the authors note. Because their analysis deliberately focused only on hourly wages, it probably underestimated the overall benefits from paying increased compensation. For example, companies might be able to exert more influence over their employees&rsquo honesty by linking bonuses to how little stock or cash disappears on their shifts.

Relatively higher wages also promote ethical responsibility, the authors say. Their analysis found that the presence of co-workers was more likely to lead to theft, especially of inventory. But this effect was significantly reduced among higher-paid workers, suggesting that wage levels influence the behavior of co-workers. &ldquoIn industries or businesses that use multiple workers to staff a store or a retail outlet, it&rsquos even more beneficial to pay a wage premium,&rdquo the authors note in a press release.

The study&rsquos takeaways can be applied to a wide range of everyday service and retail businesses, such as restaurants and department stores, the authors write. In these settings, where there are large variations in the way employees are monitored, the payoffs from stealing are not high enough to offset a higher wage. (However, this is not the case for employees working in venues like casinos and jewelry stores, where a one-time theft could be a literal jackpot.)

This study aligns with some other research that has found paying more to higher-ranking executives cuts down on fraud, while underlining the need for managers to create an optimal pay structure. Managers should bear in mind, the authors write in citing the conclusion of an earlier researcher, that &ldquopaying higher-than-market wages helps companies effectively manage their employees as a way to produce sustainable competitive advantage.&rdquo

Bottom Line:
Retail employees who earn a higher wage than their peers are less likely to steal money or inventory. For the companies in this study, savings on pilfered cash and goods paid for almost 40 percent of the wage increase, and the rest of the wage costs were potentially covered by reduced employee turnover and other positive side effects.


35+ Easy Make-Ahead Breakfasts Ideas That Are Anything but Stressful

Plus, a Good Housekeeping Institute Test Kitchen pro dishes on the fine art of keeping make-ahead eggs just as delicious later in the week.

Leta, Dobro gospodinjstvo editors have been preaching about the veliko benefits of meal prep &mdash it saves you time, can maximize a carefully planned budget, and can help you keep portions in check without even trying! Now, we're here to share all the ways in which preparing your breakfasts ahead of time can help you revolutionize your mornings, too. Whipping up a batch of easy, fridge-and-freezer-friendly eggs is certainly an option, but sweet breakfasts (from grain bowls to baked goods!) are de facto make-ahead breakfasts by default. The perfect make-ahead breakfast is just as tasty on Wednesday a.m. as it was when it came off the stove on Sunday.

The key to finding a perfect make-ahead breakfast is something you can enostavno riff on as each morning passes. For example, DIY granola is a classic example &mdash it can be layered in a yogurt fruit bowl on Monday and Tuesday, then steeped overnight with your favorite plant-based milk and a dash of honey and dark chocolate on Wednesday and Thursday. The same can be said for a frittata enjoy it with a plate of spinach one day, and a piece of whole-grain toast the next. Soon, you'll find that make-ahead breakfast ideas are far from boring they just need the perfect accessory du jour to make your morning that much more exciting.

Even if you don't v celoti cook your breakfast beforehand, prepping it the night before a busy morning can be a boon, too. Case in point: Holidays and special occasions, where nailing a beautiful, tasty brunch is going to take more elbow grease than usual. Assembling fresh quiches to throw into the oven when the time is right, for example. Whether you're looking for something you can quickly reheat, or to shave away total prep time, these make-ahead breakfast ideas are perfect for any occasion. Get cracking on these breakfast time savers now! To get you going, here are 37 of our favorite big-batch breakfasts you can make in advance.

Unlike our favorite meal-prepped lunches, eggs can be a bit finicky &mdash they require a bit more finesse in storage and reheating. Catherine Lo, a food editor in the Good Housekeeping Institute's Test Kitchen, says the key to keeping eggs just as tasty after subjecting them to a microwave is to specially prep them before reheating. "One of the perils of reheating eggs, especially in the microwave, is that they lose their moisture," she explains. "If you're going to reheat in the microwave, make sure to cover it with microwave-safe plastic wrap &mdash and poke a small vent in it beforehand." If you're reheating a burrito or sandwich, wrapping the whole item in a damp paper towel can prevent bread from becoming un-appetizingly hard.

Baked eggs, or pastries or dishes with crusts, are better suited to be reheated in a toaster oven or a regular oven Lo says to reheat at 350°F if no temp is specified in the recipe. You want to make sure that your dish has sat at room temp for at least 30 minutes before reheating for best results. If you're reheating an entire dish as opposed to a single serving, make sure to use an instant-read thermometer to ensure it reads 165°F.

Hard-boiled egg lovers, be sure to leave them unpeeled when you store them in your fridge &mdash you can keep them fresh for a week this way. "For max flavor, leave them out at room temp for about 20 minutes before eating, as cold tends to dull the flavor," Lo advises. "If eggs are peeled, eat them in a day or two."


Technology Is On the Menu for C-store Foodservice Leaders

NATIONAL REPORT — As convenience store operators invest more money, time and square footage in foodservice operations, many are turning to technology for faster service, automation and an improved bottom line.

Whether it’s online or mobile ordering, in-store kiosks, food safety technology or robots cooking in the kitchen, the latest advancements are allowing c-stores to keep up with the restaurant industry and better satisfy customers.

“ Technology in foodservice is not a new concept, but we are starting to see more innovation.

Because of the low unemployment rate and higher labor costs, there is a lot of automation technology being developed,” said Amanda Topper, associate director of foodservice research at Mintel, based in Chicago. “ Also, mobile ordering and delivery is coming about because we are seeing a shift of more consumers wanting to have off-location dining.”

In fact, 57 percent of consumers said they planned to use mobile ordering and pickup in 2019, according to Mintel’s Dining Out in 2019 report, published in December 2018.

In the convenience channel, a few operators are testing the concept, including 7-Eleven Inc. with its 7Now mobile app. 7-Eleven also partnered with Postmates on delivery a few years back, Topper noted.

In terms of online ordering and delivery at c-stores, Mintel’s March 2019 C-Store Foodservice Poročilo showed 23 percent of c-store foodservice customers want to see online ordering from a c-store and 21 percent want delivery options offered.

“ We are seeing operators invest more in mobile and online ordering, and shifting to a store concept that meets the needs of consumers placing orders online,” Topper explained. “ Dunkin' has a few test stores with special pickup areas for online orders and a drive-thru lane just for people who ordered online. Chipotle is testing this concept, too.”

Technology for training is another area ripe with innovation. Many operators are using iPads or other tablets in the kitchen to feature recipes and provide training videos for kitchen staff on how to prepare meals, according to Jessica Williams, founder and CEO of the consulting firm Food Forward Thinking LLC.

“ With training, it’s critical to replicate in-person training as much as possible, so video training through iPads or filming recipes in those quick clips people see on Instagram is something that is helping right now,” Williams explained. “ The digital training will also be key to offering consistent and accurate products across a chain.”

Technology advances are leading to improvements in the food safety arena as well.

One area in particular that’s gaining traction in food safety technology is blockchain food traceability, which enables a customer to track the entire lifecycle of a food product by scanning its QR code.

Blockchain covers every link of the supply chain, from raw materials to production to the final product on the shelf, according to Francine Shaw, president and CEO of Savvy Food Safety Inc., based in Hagerstown, Md. Blockchain also enables companies to track their own supply chain in a secure and paperless way. Data that used to take seven days to collect can now be obtained in mere seconds.

“ Blockchain will make tracking shipments much less complicated. Every logistical step of a product’s journey will have instantaneous information on who handled it, where and when, resulting in fewer stolen, lost or damaged goods. Suppliers could even trace the temperature and humidity throughout the shipping process,” Shaw said. “ This will be extremely useful in locating unsafe products or the source of foodborne illnesses, thus preventing costly mass recalls.”

Blockchain technology can also help prevent massive amounts of unnecessary food waste and all of the related costs that go along with it, including labor, storage, disposal of contaminated or mislabeled product, and more, she added.

For Trader Joe's, a New York Taste Test

Monrovia, Calif. - IN an industrial park somewhere in Los Angeles, the pieces of the puzzle come together.

One crew, using rakes, turns 525 pounds of newly roasted peanuts trucked in from Texas. Another adds a heavy shower of dried whole chilies, lemon grass fibers, curry leaves and cane sugar imported from a producer in Thailand whose identity is a closely kept secret.

"No one except us knows all the parts of the operation," said Matt Sloan, vice president for merchandising for the Trader Joe's food stores, whose popularity took off in California in the 1970's and whose first store in New York City is opening on March 17. "In that way it's like a conspiracy." Long before Trader Joe's went national, its inexpensive but unusual products -- things like wild blueberry juice, Sicilian extra-virgin olive oil and frozen chicken-lemon grass spring rolls -- inspired an intense following among American food lovers, rarely seen in the aisles of a supermarket.

The stores are small, the selection is uneven and the corporate culture can be described as dorky. But because its products are often not available anywhere else because they mysteriously appear, disappear, then reappear on the shelves or perhaps simply because they often taste very, very good, Trader Joe's has become tremendously popular among Americans who like to be entertained and educated by what they eat, as well as nourished by it.

To protect its house-brand products, the company is notoriously secretive. But it opened slightly to this reporter recently, for the first time allowing an outsider into the daily critique conducted by the company's best-trained palates, a group known as "the tasting panel."

"The tasting panel is what takes us from having good products to having addictive products," said Doug Rauch, the president.

Like Trader Joe's Thai Lime & Chili Peanuts, for example: rich, spicy, fragrant, sweet and not quite like anything else on the mass market. They represent the end of a long process of travel, research, argument and experimentation. "You can drive yourself crazy in this job, like a cat chasing its tail, and sometimes you never get there," said Lori Latta, who buys dried fruit and nuts for the company and has been on the tasting panel for 20 years.

More than a buyer, Ms. Latta adds in the skills of chef, advocate, food scientist and nutritionist. Her job, and those of the 14 other "category leaders," is to perpetually travel the world visiting all kinds of food businesses -- restaurants, farmers' markets, artisanal pasta makers, street stalls and supermarkets -- and then translate their finds to the stores. When a category leader was served an ideal tiramisù at a small restaurant on the Amalfi coast of Italy, he spent months working with the chef on a version that could be mass-produced, frozen, exported to the United States and sold for $6.99 in freezer cases from San Diego to Boston. But first it had to pass the tasting panel.

In the case of the peanuts, "I tasted that snack in a Thai airport, but it was stale and too salty and full of MSG," Ms. Latta said. With a California manufacturer, she recreated it, omitting artificial additives and using American peanuts (to avoid high import tariffs) and Thai seasonings (for authentic flavor). She then repeatedly presented it to the tasting panel, adjusting flavors until the whole group agreed that the proper balance of salt, spice, citrus and heat had been achieved.

The panel is sufficiently focused to spend long minutes discussing, for example, the different effects of fine sea salt, coarse sea salt, coarse kosher salt and medium kosher salt on roasted walnuts. Getting the panel's approval can take months, even years.

Once approved, new products line up next to the popular peanut-butter-stuffed pretzels, chocolate-covered espresso beans and green chili tamales, all of them additive-free, all-natural and capable of driving grown men to unnatural acts.

"Before we got our Trader Joe's I used to drive up to Chicago every couple of months to stock up on those pretzels," said Kevin Messina, a lawyer in Creve Coeur, Mo., near St. Louis. "It's about five hours each way, but hey, it's a straight shot."

The products that make it through but do not find a loyal customer base meet an implacable fate. "It's like at General Electric under Jack Welch," said Mr. Sloan, the vice president for merchandising. "The bottom 10 percent is always being rotated out. It's painful but necessary, because it ensures that we always have new products for our customers to get interested in."

There is nothing quite like the chain anywhere else on the American food landscape. "Trader Joe's is radically different in many ways from other food retailers," said Stephen Dowdell, editor in chief of Progressive Grocer magazine. "The stores are small, they don't rely on national brands, you can't do price comparisons and they definitely don't offer one-stop shopping. But every product has a story."

The Polynesian-themed chain was established by Joe Coulombe in Pasadena, Calif., in the 1960's, in an attempt to rescue his convenience stores after 7-Eleven came to town. "We decided to go in the other direction -- to appeal to people who are well-educated, well-traveled and underpaid," Mr. Coulombe said. (He sold his final interest in the company in 1989, but many of his innovations are still in place.)

In the 1970's, he said, after the stores stopped selling things like Twinkies, magazines and batteries and focused on food and wine, the business took off. "For years, we were the country's largest importer of Dijon mustard. Of capers. Of arborio rice. Of everything like that you can think of."

The chain's expansion is of recent vintage: the first store outside California opened in 1993. Today, each of the 250 stores still carries only about 3,000 items (a large supermarket will stock 55,000 or more), in proportions that invert the industry norm: a tiny selection of canned soup, for example, but case after case of French ice cream confections and frozen Indian entrees. About 80 percent of the items carry the Trader Joe's label, many imported from small producers in Europe and Asia, and all free of artificial colors, preservatives, flavors and MSG.

"With those parameters, some things -- ramen noodles come to mind -- are almost impossible for us to make," Mr. Sloan said. "So generally we just don't have them."

Kaj kuhati ta vikend

Sam Sifton ima predloge menija za konec tedna. Na New York Times Cookingu vas čaka na tisoče idej, kaj kuhati.

    • V tem počasnem kuhalnem receptu za kozice v čistilišču začinjena rdeča paprika in paradižnikova omaka v nekaj urah razvijeta globoke okuse.
    • V tem hitrem, pikantnem zelenem piščancu masala razporedite nekaj zelenega čatnija, kupljenega v trgovini. bi lahko bila dobra za večerjo, za zajtrk pa nekaj borovničevih kolačkov.
    • Za sladico, lubenica granita? Ali pa pecivo z maceriranimi jagodami in stepeno smetano?
    • In za sam dan spomina? Veš, da imamo veliko, veliko receptov za to.

    Fans of the chain find such quirks endearing. All employees wear Hawaiian shirts at work, whether they are shelvers or the chief executive. "It helps us keep a sense of humor about what we do," said Mr. Sloan, who, like many senior staff members, began working for the company as a college student -- that was in 1993 -- and never left.

    All this has helped build the Trader Joe's mystique into a full-scale food cult. It will soon be clear whether the cult will take hold in New York City, where scores of local retailers specialize in top-quality imported house-brand products (among them Zabar's, Sahadi's and Agata & Valentina).

    The chain has a strong health food streak, making the new Manhattan store competitive with the much larger Whole Foods just down the block. A stunning amount of shelf space is devoted to trail mixes (dark antioxidant-rich berries are hot, as are raw nuts rich in omega-3's) and energy bars like LäraBar and Clif, which the chain discounts deeply. "You should have seen it a few years ago," Ms. Latta said. "The bars almost took over the store."

    TraderJoe's has also guided its customers into the world of prepared food and precut vegetables -- what Mr. Rauch, the president, calls "speed scratch" cooking. "Trader Joe's customers are people who really care about cooking," he said, "but like everyone else in America, they don't feel like they have time to chop all the vegetables, cook the chicken and make the dessert -- but they want to be in the kitchen." The stores stock lots of things like precut butternut squash and beets, "simmer sauces" that make quick stews, and marinated salmon fillets packaged with fresh herbs in oven-ready cooking bags. "We are very careful about marinades," Mr. Sloan said solemnly. "Dill can be very polarizing."

    About 40 percent of salad greens in American supermarkets are sold already separated, washed and bagged. At Trader Joe's, the proportion is close to 100 percent.

    "Who buys head lettuce anymore?" Ms. Latta said, surveying a produce case stuffed with bags of organic baby arugula, herb salad and sugar snap peas at the original Trader Joe's, on Arroyo Parkway in Pasadena. There was not a vegetable in sight that was not packed in plastic. "The whole food business is now trying to figure out how to keep people cooking," Mr. Rauch said. "We pull in things from all over the world that work for our customers."

    One February afternoon at the headquarters in Monrovia, near Pasadena (yes, even the receptionists wear Hawaiian shirts), the tasting panel members, most well into their 40's or older, crowded cheerfully into the test kitchen. (This reporter was allowed in on condition that individual members -- many of whom negotiate with vendors for changes in products -- not be quoted by name on the opinions they expressed.) The pasta buyer had boiled up six different Italian brands of whole-grain pasta and tossed them in plain olive oil.

    The group fell silent and began chewing intently. Immediately, comments flew. "Interesting nutty flavors on No. 1." "This one has a cardboardy texture at the end." "What about the omega-3's on this one?" Eventually, a favorite was determined by a show of hands and a plan sketched for the step ahead: persuading the supplier to make refinements and solve problems.

    Next, aged goat cheeses. Then truffled cheeses. ("Like dirty socks." "I think people want to see those black flecks." "I worry that we're just too far ahead of the curve with these.") Toasted walnuts, then granola clusters. ("How are these not cookies?" the house nutritionist asked.) And finally a new category: trail-mix-based cereals. The group poured milk and chewed. "I am not happy to get a whole almond in my bowl of cereal," one said forcefully.

    That kind of passionate, focused attention to food is clearly sensed by Trader Joe's customers. "This sounds crazy, but you feel like the company likes food even more than they like money," said Marcy Benfiglio, who lives near the branch in Larchmont, N.Y. "You don't feel that at the supermarket."

    The Last Flight of the Tortilla Chip

    JOAN RAPPOPORT, a Wall Street events planner, used to hold a case of blue corn tortilla chips on her lap every time she flew back from Los Angeles.

    A New York University graduate student, Katie Geller, long expatriated from Santa Monica, Calif., rediscovered the tamales of her youth in Merrick, N.Y.

    Determined parents in Chelsea rented a car for the drive to Scarsdale to procure boxes of the miniature apple pies that had become their food-averse twins' only dessert.

    "These things just don't exist anywhere else, and you will go to any lengths to get them," said Anya Malenina, the twins' mother, who herself confesses to an addiction to Trader Joe's frozen pot stickers.

    Now that Manhattan is getting its first Trader Joe's -- opening March 17 at 142 East 14th Street on Union Square -- some New Yorkers will have to do less roadwork to sate their passions for its products.

    When food-loving New Yorkers first heard of Trader Joe's it sounded like a kind of glorified convenience store, good for party snacks and cheap wine (like "Two-Buck Chuck," its exclusive line of Charles Shaw varietals, which sell for $1.99 in the California stores and will be $2.99 in the wine shop next to the New York store). Then the chain expanded its house-brand food lines and its reach into the nation's suburbs. Web sites and singles events dedicated to Trader Joe's fans in New York appeared, and locals grew curious.

    "I have a friend who moved from Brooklyn to Portland, Ore., a few years ago," said Nathalie Chase, who works as a photographer's assistant in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, "and she started calling me every day to tell me about the new hummus or potato chip flavor or whatever. Every single day."

    "When I went to visit we went to Trader Joe's on the way from the airport," Ms. Chase added. "I got hooked on the uncured bacon and the salmon roulades."

    On Sunday cold New York noses were pressed against the glass of the 14th Street store, watching little more than empty shelves and light fixtures. (Once the doors swing open, they will stay open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. seven days a week.) But some experienced locals professed themselves impervious to the store's charms, saying that the quality was uneven and that the store used too much packaging and provided too little service. (Trader Joe's stores do not have deli counters or butchers.)

    "I can't shop at a place if I don't know whether they'll have lamb chops that day," said Mark Allio, a Web designer. "Who in New York has that kind of time?"

    But most passers-by were welcoming. "There is no food store anywhere that doesn't interest me," said Esther Kronenberg, who lives on the Upper East Side. "And when you tell me I can't get something in New York, I want to know exactly what it is."

    THESE are the 10 most popular products (by items sold) at Trader Joe's stores nationally, carrying the store's name or other labels:

    Charles Shaw Wines ("Two-Buck Chuck")

    Mandarin Orange Chicken (frozen)

    Nuts About Antioxidants Trek Mix

    Lite Shredded 3 Cheese Blend

    Best Convenience Retailing Concept: The Grid at Liberty University/Sodexo

    Opened simultaneously with five other restaurant concepts inside Liberty University’s new Montview Student Union, The Grid is a unique campus c-store in the way it supports the school’s community service mission not only through the donation of one percent of retail sales to local charities, but also by going one step further and giving each customer the choice of how the donation from his/her purchase will be used.

    This not only involves each customer in the process of giving but also allows him partial ownership of the program. This sense of sharing is further bolstered by the community bulletin board in the store that provides an opportunity for customers and visitors to get the word out about local events, fundraisers and opportunities to participate in charitable giving.

    The Grid’s centralized location on the Liberty campus also gives it a unique opportunity to serve customers from all campus demographics, making it an excellent place to showcase and test new products and ideas, from housemade gluten-free bakery items and healthy grab-and-go meals to innovative hot packaged meals and healthy recipe soups that customers can weigh in on by their purchasing choices.

    The Grid’s central location also makes it ideal for external vendors to showcase their new and innovative products. Major suppliers like Coca-Cola and Frito Lay have already taken advantage of the space at the Grid to showcase promotions and new products prior to full local rollout.

    Montview, on Liberty’s Academic Quad at the center of its campus, is connected to the main academic building, DeMoss Hall, on its first floor, which is where the Grid and the five other food concepts are located, along with a game room, computer labs and an eight-lane bowling alley. The dining concepts include the Mediterranean-themed Garbanzo, Woodfire Pizza, U Food Grille and its health-focused menu, Star Ginger Asian Grill/Noodle Bar and Argo Tea.

    The concept mix is designed to meet the needs of customers who are challenged for time and need a meal or a simple snack in a hurry before returning to DeMoss. Returns from its first year of operation show that it has certainly gained considerable popularity, with as many as 175 customers an hour jamming its two-register operation at peak periods, with ticket averages exceeding $4.80.

    In fact, in just its first six months, Montview’s foodservice array had already generated enough revenue to cover 80 percent of its $400,000 annual sales target, well on the way to some $750,000 in total sales for the year.

    The new retail cluster with The Grid c-store is just one of a number of enhancements made recently to the dining program at Liberty. The school also rolled out a campus pizza delivery program last fall and earlier this year it expanded the reach of its gluten-free bakeshop to campus retail venues.

    The school was also the first site to roll out Sodexo’s Simple Servings allergen-free dining station concept, which avoids any use of seven of the most common eight food allergens. The concept won an FM Best Concept Award in 2013.

    This summer as you reach for a snack to fuel your hike, bike, swim, picnic in the park, test out some of the ideas below. You will not only be making healthy choices for yourself, you will also be helping to sustain the environment for generations to come.

    With the holidays approaching, I always get questions about how to avoid packing on the pounds when our offices, homes, parties and stores are full of tempting, delectable treats. I, for one, am a huge sucker for my grandma’s fresh-baked rolls and chocolate chip cookies made with our new Equal Exchange chocolate chips.

    Hello Summer! Humidity, sunshine and travel. If you are like most, your summer schedule is already filling up rapidly. With travel comes the hassle of meal planning on the go…..eating out more, grabbing junk food at the convenience store - we all do it. The past few years, I have challenged myself to continue to live out my principles of eating nutritious food, and eating food from companies and farmers that I believe in, while on the road. Kaj? Is this possible in a world where most people can’t even eat this way in their home?

    This weekend I put together a hot cocoa bar for some friends and it was a big hit! It was fun to make our own creations and compare the delicious results.


    Even as c-store operators integrate healthier snacks like protein bars, yogurt, fruits and vegetables onto their shelves, candy, chips and soda still tend to dominate. But in California, Rachel Krupa, founder of The Goods Mart, aims to change that with a c-store that only stocks a healthy and sustainable assortment.

    The Goods Mart convenience store in Silver Lake, CA is a 900-square-foot space laid out much like a 7-Eleven, according to Moneyish. But the product mix consists of healthy and sustainable products like non-GMO pressed juices, “ugly” produce (to reduce food waste) and organic slushies. The store also features popular “natural” CPG brands like Annie’s Homegrown, Amy’s Kitchen, Cliff Bars and Kettle Brand chips.

    While the shelf selection may look more like that of Whole Foods than a gas station c-store, Ms. Krupa told Moneyish she envisions the store being a neighborhood meeting place akin to the rural Michigan Sunoco station she visited as a child. She hopes to expand the store beyond a single location.

    The Goods Mart concept arrives at a time when some of the biggest names in CPG have been rolling out better-for-you offerings to meet demands for healthy (or at least less unhealthy) snack foods. Last year, Hershey acquired Amplify Snack Brands, owner of SkinnyPop popcorn, and Campbell Soup acquired Snyder-Lance, owner of Snyder’s of Hanover pretzels.

    Convenience stores remained a growth industry last year, according to the 2018 NACS/Nielsen Convenience Industry Store Count. As of December 31, 2017, the total U.S. convenience store count rose 0.3 percent to a record 154,958 stores. Nielsen attributed the growth to a “focus on innovation, improved customer experience, assortment variation and healthy investments in food services.”

    Shifting customer expectations and a focus on health may be driving the change in what c-stores are stocking and serving, but it seems likely that tech innovation is in part tied to concerns over potential disruption from Amazon.com. The tech giant’s cashier-less Amazon Go concept could impact both shopping and employment at c-stores. Perhaps in response to that pressure, 7-Eleven recently began piloting tech enhancements such as mobile app-based ordering, in-store pickup and delivery.

    DISCUSSION QUESTIONS: Do you see potential for a store like The Goods Mart to grow into a major chain? How likely is it that a Goods Mart-like concept will be tested by a mainstream convenience store operator in the near future?
