This was the best presented, most cohesive and informative seminar I've ever attended. The information was correlated beautifully and delivered enthusiastically. Your forms are going to save me so much work. I never give all 5’s but you’ve earned it.


All the information provided is relevant to our co-op's current operations. This was an eye-opening experience that many co-ops are working with the same challenges. It was great to work with peers from across the country.

A great training. Lots of great information, with tools to set up your operation for strategic growth. Allen did a good job of keeping things flowing. I learned a lot and plan to send my staff in the future.

Super inspiring to see new ideas and ways to grow sales and revamp programs within a co-op deli. I love having the collaborative time here with my store colleague. Good Earth is top of line and so inspiring!


DeliOps is great for content, and for real life examples and networking. Being new to retail and delis, but not to foodservice, I'm amazed at how much there is to learn. Thanks for closing the gap.
