Position title: Store Director, Wheatsville Food Co-op
My name is Sal Mendivil and I am the Store Manager for Wheatsville Sola (South Lamar store) and I have been with WV 6 and a half years. I have worked in the retail grocery/food service industry for 19 years now. I really love that here at Wheatsville, leadership truly listens to what our employees are saying, and actually act on making things better. I share the same passion for food and service as my Team, I love what I do and I love the people I work with. WV is unique in that it’s not just another grocery store, it’s a place where friends meet and enjoy each other’s company over some awesome food from our Deli. It’s a place where families come to support local farmers and vendors. In doing so, it makes their families stronger, healthier, and in turn makes the local Austin economy stronger and healthier as well. It’s a place where people come to learn about cool new products, taste new items, and grow their knowledge about healthy, natural, organic foods that are affordable! Working for WV we truly are making a positive difference in people lives. I feel extremely lucky to be able to make such a positive impact. Doing it with people that share the same values and beliefs for making our communities stronger.
