Two Minute Drill: Piggly Wiggly


Have you seen the Piggly Wiggly shirt Dr. Jay likes to wear? There is a story behind it! Listen to this week’s TMD to hear how the Piggly Wiggly grocery store chain is a true innovator in grocery shopping.


Grocery Innovation

The Piggly Wiggly was a huge innovator in grocery shopping. Clarence Saunders founded the Piggly Wiggly in 1916 in Memphis, TN. The way people were shopping at the time was incredibly inefficient. They would hand their list to a clerk, who would run around the store and get their stuff for them. He said we are not doing this anymore. We are going to do self-services, checkout lines, and pricing on all the products.

He was truly an innovator who changed grocery shopping forever and ever. Plus he had the best name for a grocery store on the planet. So the Piggly Wiggly was truly the innovation in grocery shopping

When we think about innovation and how we are able to change the game, especially for healthcare and for our patients, we have to think about our team members that we have as well. I’m sure Clarence had some great people on his team to help his company grow nationwide

What about your practice? What about your organization? Who are the people that you have in your seats on your bus helping you achieve your mission?

We’ll be talking about that a lot on June 15 at 1:30p Masterclass Webinar all about leaders in the locker room. How we bring the best people into the locker room, and how we support them to help you achieve your mission. We’ll be talking a little bit more about the Piggly Wiggly and a lot about how to create success for your practice and your life.
