Zingerman’s was founded in March 1982 by Ari Weinzweig and Paul Saginaw as a small corner delicatessen in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Today, we’re a community of ten unique businesses, with 700+ employees and $65 million+ in annual revenue. We’ve been fortunate to be nationally recognized for our products and customer service, in addition to our unique business model.
Inc. Magazine called Zingerman’s “The Coolest Small Company in America,” and we’ve been featured in the Harvard Business Review, New York Times, and on MSNBC for our business practices.
