Among privately held employers here, Wegmans ranks No. 1

Rochester Business Journal
July 22, 2014

It's no surprise: Wegmans Food Markets is the largest employer among privately held companies in the six-county Rochester region.

The supermarket chain, one of the largest private companies nationwide with 84 stores in six states, employs 13,582 people locally, according to the 2014 RBJ 75 special supplement to be published Friday. Companywide, Wegmans now has nearly 44,000 people on its payroll.

The second-largest privately held employer in the Rochester region is Sutherland Global Services Inc., with 3,009 workers, followed by Tops Markets LLC, which has 2,620 local employees. Rounding out the top five are Finger Lakes Racing Association Inc., operator of Finger Lakes Gaming & Racetrack, and Hurlbut Care Communities.

Now in its 26th year, the RBJ 75 list annually ranks the region's private-sector employers: public, private and non-profit. All current RBJ subscribers will receive a copy of the RBJ 75 supplement with the July 25 issue. To pre-order extra copies, go to the RBJ Newsstand.
