Seeking General Manager

New Leaf Market Co-op is seeking an energetic, community-oriented leader to serve as its General Manager, with the goal of opening the store’s doors in early 2018.

As the home of the Green Bay Packers, the greater Green Bay area is well-versed in the concept of a community-owned business. The store will serve as a regional destination for natural foods and the co-op shopping experience, since Northeast Wisconsin currently has few co-ops as compared to the rest of the state.

The chosen location of the store in vibrant downtown De Pere (in the Green Bay metro area) was the result of a market study that scored De Pere highest in the region with regard to demographics and community support of a co-op. All indicators show that New Leaf Market is positioned for steady and continued growth, and we seek a GM who is enthusiastic about continuing our successful start-up efforts. We are currently on track to have 1,500 member-owners before the store opens, with approximately two months until construction begins.

If you are interested in applying please see the General Manager Job Posting and Job Description.

Exciting news! On May 2, the De Pere City Council approved New Leaf’s loan application of $250,000! With this piece of financing, we are 94% to our final goal!

So how can YOU help reach the finish line and open YOUR member-owned co-op grocery store? One of our loan contingencies requires that we grow our membership to 1,500 members (currently at 900) by August 30. Your participation, ideas and energy are key to reaching that goal.

If you can’t make it on May 18, but would like to volunteer some time, please contact our Membership & Marketing Chair, Tracy Flucke by phone (920)497-3196 or email This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

If you don’t have time to volunteer, keep this in mind….if each member recruits just one more member, New Leaf would significantly surpass its goal! Talk to your family members, neighbors, co-workers. Direct folks to our website and Facebook page, and share your excitement about New Leaf Market Co-op…it’s RIGHT AROUND THE CORNER!

Loan Update and Membership

On April 14, New Leaf Market Co-op was approved for a $250,000 Brown County Revolving Loan! This strong support is grounded in your community-owned co-op’s contributions to Brown County’s economic development in the form of good jobs, a steady market for regional farm and food products, and the recirculation of profits to member-owners. The next step is a City of De Pere Revolving Loan Fund Application, which comes before the De Pere City Council for approval in May.

Increasing the number of member-owners is the last step to reaching the total financing goal! New Leaf Market Co-op already has 900 member-owners. To meet the county loan requirements, we need 600 more member-owners to begin construction by September.

What can you do to help close the deal?

1. Click the JOIN US tab and become a member-owner now, if you’re not already one of the first 900 charter members.

2. Encourage your friends & family to become member-owners. Person-to-person recommendations are the most powerful way to grow your co-op’s membership.
