rutters goes twofortwo

Local newspaper awards the chain for top honors second year in a row.

Rutter’s doubled its pleasure on its way to finishing first in four categories in the York Sunday News’ 2007 “best of” reader survey.

Rutter’s was No. 1 in milk and “deli, sub or sandwich”–two categories it also bested in 2006. In 2007, Rutter’s also picked up first-place rankings in the breakfast and lunch categories. In a neck-and-neck race for the coffee category, Rutter’s ranked second only to Starbucks.

This year’s survey, published as a tabloid supplement to the newspaper’s May 27 edition, comprised 87 categories.

“More than anything, what these rankings tell us is that Rutter’s is a part of the fabric of its communities, offering a friendly, reliable destination for foods and beverages that consumers enjoy at all hours of the day,” said Scott Hartman, president of Rutter’s Farm Stores.
