2. Trend of the Operating Margin (5-year average). The company with an uptrend profit margin has a higher rank.
••3. Consistency of the profitability
4. Piotroski F-Score
5. Predictability Rank•

The maximum rank is 10. A rank of 7 or higher means a higher profitability and may stay that way. A rank of 3 or lower indicates that the company has had trouble to make a profit.

Business Description

Industry: Retail - Defensive » Grocery Stores
Compare: » details
Traded in other countries:5FM.Germany
Fresh Market, Inc. is a Delaware corporation and it was founded in 1982. The Company is a specialty retailer focused on creating an extraordinary food shopping experience for its customers. It provides high-quality food products, with an emphasis on fresh, premium perishables and an uncompromising commitment to customer service. As of January 27, 2013, the Company operates 129 stores in 25 states, mainly in the Southeast, Midwest and Mid-Atlantic United States. It offers fresh, carefully selected, high-quality food products focused on perishable categories. Examples of its offerings include hand-trimmed steaks that are aged for tenderness, fresh seafood delivered up to six times per week, hand-stacked produce that is colorfully displayed and French-style baguettes baked in-store each morning. The Company's stores average approximately 21,000 square feet, compared to the approximately 40,000 to 60,000 square foot stores operated by many conventional supermarkets. The Company's distribution strategy is to capitalize on the capabilities of best-in-class third-party logistics providers and, as such, it does not own warehouses, distribution facilities or transportation equipment. The Company outsources substantially all of its logistics functions to third-party distributors and vendors. Its trademarks, including its registered The Fresh Market, Experience the Food and TFM trademarks are valuable assets that reinforce its customers' favorable perception of its stores. The company's competition varies and includes national conventional supermarkets such as Kroger and Safeway, regional supermarkets such as Harris Teeter and Publix, national superstores such as Wal-Mart and Target, alternative food retailers such as Whole Foods and Trader Joe's, and local supermarkets, natural foods stores, smaller specialty stores and farmers' markets. The Company's stores are subject to various local, state, federal and international laws, regulations and administrative practices affecting its business.
