Rutter’s Farm Stores of Pennsylvania Joins The Nexxus Family

DANVERS, Massachusetts (September 20,2012) – Rutter’s Farm Stores of York, PA, has chosen to partner with The Nexxus Group, an industry-leading provider of Scan Based Trading solutions. The Nexxus Group will employ its proprietary Scan Based Trading tools to manage the newspaper category at 57 company-owned Rutter’s Farm Stores locations throughout Central Pennsylvania. The program with Rutter’s Farm Stores will commence on Monday, December 3, 2012.

Rutter’s history runs deep in Central Pennsylvania, dating back to 1747 when the grandson of William Penn deeded York County farmland to the Rutter family. Brothers George and Bud Rutter established the family’s dairy business as a two-man operation in 1921 and set the standards for high quality and customer service company hallmarks. Rutter’s Farm Stores were established in 1967 as an additional outlet for distribution of Rutter’s Dairy products and now maintain locations in York, Lancaster, Adams, Cumberland, Dauphin and Franklin counties.

Rutter’s Farm Stores fall under the umbrella of parent company Rutter’s Holdings, Inc. Rutter’s Farm Stores now employs 1,250 across all locations and is ranked No. 15 on the Central Penn Business Journal’s list of the Top 50 Fastest Growing companies in Central Pennsylvania, the sixth consecutive year the company has made the list. The 2012 ranking, announced in mid-September, is 12 spots higher than 2011 and stands as testament to the company’s concerted efforts for continued growth.

“We are excited about the efficiencies that our program will bring to Rutter’s,” says Jim Rao, Chairman and Founder of The Nexxus Group. “We look forward to working with such a growth-minded company with such a long and storied history.”
