The article offers pieces of advice to family-owned supermarkets in the U.S., particularly those that are contemplating transition in the coming year. According to Vince Crew, founder of Reach Development Services, the process of identifying, grooming and formally training mew leaders must be on the storeowner's agenda not once a year, but every single day. The succession process really begins once the storeowner asks himself or herself what's best for the business, the family, the employees and the owner.
