In a reflection of its outstanding commitments to employee satisfaction and the communities it serves along the Gulf Coast, Rouses Markets has been named a Top Workplace in the latest survey from The Times-Picayune and The New Orleans Advocate.

The Top Workplace award focuses on how employees feel about their workplace. Earning a Top Workplace spot is highly competitive. It means that team members consider Rouses Markets one of the best companies to work for in the Greater New Orleans area.

The award is also a significant measure of the company's overall performance. Rouses Markets is one of the fastest growing family-owned businesses in the United States.

“Our company has worked for three generations to become the number one grocery store along the Gulf Coast. Our customers expect the best from Rouses Markets. We feel that responsibility every day. It drives us to be successful every day in everything we do,” says Donny Rouse, CEO.

“But it’s not just what’s on our shelves, it’s who is in our stores that makes us successful. Our team members are what makes us successful. They are the heart of our business. I’m proud that they consider us the best place to work.”

Rouses Markets has been named the Best Grocery Store in New Orleans, the North Shore, Baton Rouge, Tangipahoa, Thibodaux, Houma, Morgan City, Hammond, Lafayette, Lake Charles, Mobile, Alabama, and on the Mississippi Gulf Coast in poll after poll, year after year.

A Legacy of Excellence

Donny Rouse, CEO of Rouses Markets, credits the company's success to its strong values and commitment to its team members. "My family and I have always focused on creating an environment where everyone feels valued and empowered to succeed. We have team members who began their careers at Rouses Markets as teenagers who are now running stores. We want our team members to grow," says Rouse.

Founded in 1960 by Anthony J. Rouse, Sr., Donny Rouse’s grandfather, Rouses Markets has grown from a single store in Houma, Louisiana, to one of the largest independent grocers in the Gulf Coast region. With 64 locations, and two more slated to open this year, and more than 7,000 team members, the company remains true to its local roots. Rouses Markets is deeply involved in every community it serves — locals helping locals is in its DNA, partnering with local organizations for food drives, charity events, and disaster relief efforts. Team members often participate in these initiatives, strengthening their connection to their communities and to each other.

A High Standard for Employers Everywhere

“With our comprehensive benefits and career development opportunities, we set a high standard for employers everywhere,” says Lee Veillon, Vice President of Human Resources. “But what truly sets us apart is our deep-rooted connection to the communities we serve. Being locals ourselves, we understand the neighborhoods we serve, and we’re committed to making them better places to live and work for everyone. Our team members share that same commitment to serving their own communities with pride and dedication."
