BROOKFIELD - The Ohio Grocers Association is scheduled today to present the prestigious Pinnacle Award to Mr. D's Delicious Fresh Foods of Brookfield.
The Pinnacle Award, based on operational excellence and significant contribution to Ohio's food industry, is given annually to both a single-store operator and a multi-store operation.
The presentation is scheduled to take place at noon at the 7156 Warren Sharon Road store.
Mr. D's employs more than 70 employees and is known for its prepared foods and bakery.
The store's community involvement included its initiation of an Electronic Save a Tape Program that has raised more than $150,000 to benefit local schools, churches and the Brookfield Fire Department. The store also participated in the purchase of the new score board for the Brookfield High School football team.
Store operators Larry and Ed D'Onofrio will be recognized at the Ohio Grocers Annual Trade Relations Gala April 13 in Columbus.
