This supermarket is tops in customer experience across all industries...

By Marianne Wilson - 04/05/2018
Wegmans delivers the best customer experience — and not just in the supermarket sector.

That’s according to the 2018 Temkin Experience Ratings, an annual customer experience benchmark of companies based on a survey of 10,000 U.S. consumers. With a score of 86%, Wegmans not only received the highest score in the supermarket industry, it received the highest score in the entire Ratings – ranking No. 1 out of 318 companies across 20 industries.

Similarly, H-E-B and Publix earned the second highest scores for both the supermarket industry and the Ratings overall, each with a score of 83%. Aldi and Wawa Food Markets – each of which scored 82% and tied for 7th overall – also ranked in the top 10 rankings across all industries.

Overall, supermarkets earned some of the highest scores in the entire Ratings. The supermarket industry averaged a 79% rating, and came in first place out of 20 industries. (TV/Internet service and health plans were the lowest scoring industries.)

"Supermarkets have been the highest-scoring industry since 2012, and this year was no different,” said Bruce Temkin, managing partner of Temkin Group. “But the leadership has changed, as Wegmans jumped over H-E-B to earn the top spot."
