LAS VEGAS – June 27, 2012 – In honor of its six-year anniversary in Las Vegas, Winder Farms, a premier home delivery grocery company, recognized a customer who has been with the company since first expanding to Las Vegas in 2006. On Friday, June 22 Winder Farms' Chief Executive Officer Mike Dutton and President and Chief Financial Officer Scott Tanner made a special delivery to Summerlin resident Jennifer Ashcroft to present her with a gift basket.
"We wanted to find a way to thank Mrs. Ashcroft for being a loyal customer from the very beginning," said Dutton. "Just like our weekly delivery, which we know she enjoys, we thought showing up on her doorstep to personally thank her would really show our appreciation."
Ashcroft has been a Winder Farms customer since August 2006. This year the Utah-based company, which has been in business since 1880, will also recognize some of its long-standing customers company-wide. Currently, the company's longest customer has been receiving deliveries since July of 1948. The second and third longest customers began service in November 1948 and June 1953, respectively. Winder Farms' original customers will receive a personal visit from a Winder Farms team including Kent Winder, vice president of customer service, and Scott Tanner delivering gift baskets featuring Winder Farms assorted products and gift certificates to thank them for their long-standing and continued business.
"It's amazing to think that Winder Farms has been delivering to some customers for over 60 years," said Dutton. "Their enduring patronage is a testament to the quality of service and products we deliver that creates a magical experience for our customers. We look forward to continuing to deliver that magic for years to come."
With more than 8,000 customers in Las Vegas and more than 31,500 company-wide, more and more customers are recognizing the benefits of having groceries delivered straight to their door. Not only does Winder Farms save customers money, time and gas by eliminating at least one trip to the grocery store per week, they also provide an easy and convenient way to put farm-fresh healthy food on the table.
Many of Winder Farms' customers, including Ashcroft, say that the milk is their favorite Winder Farms product. They also like the nostalgic feeling of having a "milkman" deliver glass bottles to their doorstep. Not only is Winder Farms' milk the freshest, as it reaches the customer's front door roughly 36 hours after it leaves the farm, it also comes from cows not treated with artificial growth hormones or antibiotics.
Over the years Winder Farms has expanded its lineup of award-winning milk products to include a variety of flavored milks including: Chocolate, Strawberry, Vanilla, Root Beer, Orange Vanilla as well as sports drinks Chocolate Milk Recovery and Protein Plus Nutritional Shake. Winder Farms delivers more than 175,000 farm-fresh products to homes in Utah and Las Vegas every week including: all natural dairy items, fruits and vegetables, salads, meats, pre-made snacks and dinner entrees and much more.
