Cash Wise Foods in Minot was recently named Employer of the Year by the Department of Human Services.

The grocery store was recognized by the Division of Vocational Rehabilitation for its efforts to hire people with disabilities to achieve employment goals.

One employee says he’s grateful for the opportunities at Cash Wise Foods.
