Great Northern makes list of 75 largest private companies in WI

Great Northern announced today that it ranked No. 42nd on Deloitte’s Wisconsin 75™, a ranking of the 75 largest private companies in Wisconsin, based on sales revenue.

The list is compiled by Deloitte. This marks the second year Great Northern has appeared on the list. Deloitte’s annual Wisconsin 75 list salutes the largest privately held Wisconsin-based companies. These companies play a key role in the state’s economy. Wisconsin 75 award winners are selected based on annual sales revenue.

“For the 19th year, Deloitte is proud to recognize the economic and community impact of the largest 75 private companies in Wisconsin —the Wisconsin 75. This year we will not only celebrate the individual successes of each of these organizations, but also the collective impact of private companies in powering Wisconsin’s economy and community,” said PJ DiStefano, Wisconsin managing partner of Deloitte LLP.

Great Northern Instore’s Experience Helps Circle K Win

Great Northern Instore helps Circle K Win with Displays

The convenience store channel was initially impacted with the COVID-19 pandemic in the first half of 2020 as traffic declined due to lockdowns.  Once things began to open up, shoppers returned and Circle K wanted to be ready for the opportunity.  Circle K has been growing their private brands and knew it could win in this area.

Utilizing Great Northern Instore’s expertise in the impulse and snack categories, the Chicago team was able to design a great display to house a large variety of sweets, salty snacks, meat products, and nuts.  Great Northern’s flexible domestic and overseas manufacturing was able to get 2,600 units to the market complete with installation.  It has been a winning partnership that has led to great returns and is quickly expanding as we look toward two additional phases of roll-outs.
