In this role, you'll be responsible for leading the Wild Fork regional marketing efforts designed to drive traffic to the stores in the region and the local ecommerce home delivery business.

The ideal person likes to be organized and work ahead but is flexible enough to adjust as required. We are focused on building a best-in-class, nationally known brand, and you will have a significant role in helping us achieve that goal. This role is perfect for the person looking to make a big impact on a soon to be household name brand.
