Deli Superstar Shares Recipes for Business Success at DIRECT Wine Industry Conference


Zingerman founder Ari Weinzweig to relay 12 Laws of Business that have earned his organization the title “The Coolest Small Company in America.”

DIRECTAri Weinzweig, co-founder of the popular and highly-successful Zingerman’s Community of Businesses,  will reveal the secrets to his business success in front of 450+ top wine industry professionals at the 9th annual ShipCompliant DIRECT conference on May 8 in Napa, Calif. Zingerman’s is known for its unique business model and is widely praised for growing from a single, 25-seat delicatessen more than 30-years ago to an 8-business, 600-employee operation—all without sacrificing the high-quality ingredients or customer service synonymous with its name.

“Ari has shown that there are no limits to how you can use business to create meaning and fulfillment for your community and your employees,” said Jason Eckenroth, CEO of ShipCompliant. “Ari has re-defined success by focusing on sound business fundamentals that are on point for all of us in the wine industry.”

In his keynote address, Weinzweig will share the approach to business that has led to Zingerman’s success, including the “natural laws of business” as introduced in his book, Zingerman’s Guide to Good Leading: Part 1, A Lapsed Anarchist’s Approach to Building a Great Business. Weinzweig will explain why great leaders focus on creating a team of energized, high-achieving individuals by building and appreciative, positive workplace setting.

When asked the secret to his success, Weinzweig says, “There are organizational principles that consistently work and, in the big scheme of things, follow a natural order. Our experience here at Zingerman’s is that the natural laws are applicable for any business regardless of size, scale, age or product offering.”

In addition, attendees will be able to participate in an intimate workshop with Ari to study strategies that will help their businesses to grow and be a destination for the very best talent.

The ShipCompliant DIRECT conference will be held May 8-9 at the Napa Valley Marriott. Hundreds of winery heads and industry leaders attend this sell-out conference each year. Registration is now available online at: www.shipcompliant.com/events.
