Here at Jewel-Osco, we like to recognize our hardworking associates! Every month, we will have a Tuesday Toast, spotlighting one of these great employees!  We wanted to honor someone who is not only a hard working Jewel-Osco employee, but also gives back to his local community! Carl spends a considerable amount of free time volunteering in the Englewood neighborhood.

Carl is also a pastor on the East side of Chicago 2-3 times a week after work. In addition, he started a program where he adopts a senior living facility from the South Shore community and they feed the entire facility a meal for Thanksgiving.

This month, we are toasting Carl Sanders, an Assistant Store Director at our Lake Zurich store. Carl started with us in 2001 and has worked his way up the Jewel ladder. Carl started in our Front End as a third-person and was promoted to a Front End Manager in 2005. He became a Store Manager Trainee in 2012 and became and Assistant Store Director in 2013.

Carl attended Roosevelt University.

He quotes “Jewel has been a big instrument in my life, been able to send 2 daughters to college, and help people really turn their life around.” 

Check back every month to see who we’re toasting to!
