Jim Bonaminio, the founder of Jungle Jim’s International Markets, will give the keynote address at the Crosset Co.’s annual produce and floral conference.
Crosset describes Bonaminio as a “notoriously adventurous” entrepreneur and “marketing maverick with a healthy disregard for the status quo.” He also brings a common-sense approach to problem-solving and has an open-door policy for management and staff, according to a news release.
“We are very excited that Jim is available to jumpstart the educational series at our 2019 produce and floral conference,” Greg Kurkjian, Crosset vice president and general manager, said in the release. “Creating unique, engaging in-store experiences is essential to retailer differentiation, building shopper loyalty and stimulating impulse purchases.
“Jungle Jim’s International Markets are nationally and internationally recognized shopping destinations and tourist attractions, as well as the primary grocery store for many who live in the greater Cincinnati area,” Kurkjian said. “His enthusiasm and energetic personality are contagious. I have no doubt Jim will inspire all attendees to think and act in new ways when they return home.”
