To whom it may Selection Committee,
We are the current AOTs at the Modesto Grocery Outlet, store number 22 where we have
been training under Roger and Heidi Custer for the past few months. We have had the honor to
learn the Grocery Outlet Way from the Custer’s who have had remarkable success running their
store. As a result, we believe that we will be able to replicate that in our store.
We wanted to share with you our interest in the Orangevale Grocery Outlet. We have
lived in Sacramento, CA for the better part of our lives. Throughout our careers, we have worked
in the surrounding areas of Orangevale, CA. The area is known for its small suburban feel
without the high cost of living. Currently, we live in Galt, CA. Many people might view it
negatively that we do not have many family members out in that area, but in our cases, that is not
an issue. This is because we have had great success in building a successful professional network
within that community that is just like a family. Moreover, we have had the opportunity to serve
this diverse community throughout our retail careers successfully.
With that said we believe that we would be very successful in this location. Even though
Orangevale has many grocery stores, it has a high demand for a family-operated grocery store.
After touring the area, its surroundings which comprise neighborhoods, non-competitor
businesses, and the many other grocery stores in the area, we believe that with both the
knowledge we have learned from Grocery outlet and past experiences, we will be capable of
transforming this location into a destination shop for the community.
Specifically, throughout my career, I have had the opportunity to support in running
stores in both Folsom and Citrus Heights. I believe that my success in these locations was due to
my understanding of the community precisely the people that make up that community. At the
