2018 Ohio’s Best Bagger Winner
Ohio’s Best Bagger contest was another big success this year! We had 25 contestants at Buehler’s Fresh Food Market in Wooster, Ohio this past Thursday, August 9, competing for the state’s Best Bagger title, the coveted ceramic bag award, and $1,000 – plus a trip to San Diego to compete for the national title at National Grocer Association’s National Best Bagger Contest (and a chance to win $10,000).
The 2017 winner, Ellissa Chambliss from Buehler’s Medina, once again takes the win for the 2018 Ohio Best Bagger Contest! This year’s win marks the the fourth year in a row for Buehler’s to hold the State Bagging Title!
Special thanks to Buehler’s for hosting this event, Velvet Ice Cream for providing delicious sweet treats, C-Fed, and Joshen Paper & Packaging Company for sponsoring! Check out the pictures and watch Ellissa compete for the National Best Bagger Title at the NGA Show in February 2019!

Ohio won the 2017 NGA’s Best Bagger Competition in Las Vegas

At the 2017 NGA Show in Las Vegas, Brady Long, of Buehler’s Fresh Foods, defeated 22 other Best Bagger competitors from across the nation. Brady claimed the grand prize of $10,000 and the title of the NGA Best Bagger Champion. NGA has held the nationwide best bagger competition since 1987. The contestants are judged by the speed of bagging, proper bag-building technique, weight distribution in the bag, as well as style, attitude and appearance, and are chosen through statewide competitions over the course of the last year. OGA President, Kristin Mullins, was at the NGA Show and Best Bagger competition to support and later congratulate Brady on his win, “Brady not only represented Buehler’s well, but the entire state of Ohio. It’s been a long time since Ohio has won the national title and we couldn’t be more proud of Brady’s accomplishment.” Brady was on the Today Show Saturday, February 18, 2017.
