Produce: Gelson’s Produce Department is full of fresh produce from all over the world, starting with local farms and orchards.
Meat and Seafood: Students will get to see different cuts of meat and fish and learn how various machines are used to weigh and wrap product.
Service Deli: The manager will tell the story of our celebrated Service Deli, how we’ve created, and are always adding to the repertoire of restaurant-quality meals and dishes on display behind our shiny take-home glass. There will be a spotlight on special meals for kids.
Floral: Our floral manager will design a floral arrangement before the kids’ eyes. Students will learn how flowers are hand-selected for freshness, quality and uniqueness.
Bakery: Students will see how a cake is decorated or how a pastry is made and experience the sweetness of a supermarket bakery.
Front End: We’ll explain “The Gelson’s Difference” to kids, showing them how caring and helpful service can help a supermarket win and keep customers. You’d be surprised how interested students are in what makes a business successful.
Receiving: We discuss loading and unloading of our products, where and how we store them. They even find out about the compactor and the importance of recycling.
