Utah’s 2017 Best Bagger

We are so proud to announce that Kaylee Hudson, a Spanish Fork Macey’s team member, was named “Best Bagger” at the Utah Food Industry Association’s state Best Bagger competition yesterday. The contest was held at Thanksgiving Point and brought the top baggers from 24 stores face to face to claim the title of Utah’s Best Bagger. Kaylee will have several months to prepare before they head to Las Vegas, Nevada in February to represent Utah in the National Best Bagger Competition.

“It’s great being able to represent my store and show how important baggers are for our guests. It’s important to make sure everything is bagged correctly so guests receive their items undamaged and in great condition,” said Kaylee Hudson.

The Best Bagger competition is sponsored by the National Grocers Association. The competition evaluates baggers on speed, how heavy each bag is, and how products are grouped and organized inside each sack. Baggers of any age can compete. The national winner is selected during a contest at the National Grocer Associations annual conference and receives a $10,000 cash prize.

“We are so proud of Kaylee and can’t wait to have her represent us and Utah at the National competition,” said Steve Holm, district manager for Macey’s. “Our teams really care about our guests and I think the way our baggers pack their groceries shows that too.”
