BALTIMORE—Royal Farms is celebrating an employee who has been working at Royal Farms for 65 years. Jennie Enos began her career with Royal Farms on June 9, 1958. Her first job right out of high school was with the Royal Dunloggin Dairy where her parents, Wade and Ruth, also worked.

In 1968, Royal Dunloggin merged with Cloverland Dairy. Enos’s responsibilities were route accounting and bookkeeping for the milkmen. One of her favorite job titles she’s held was a switchboard operator handling inbound calls. She worked her way up to accounting supervisor where she led a team of eight employees. In the 1970s, she was transferred to Royal Farms and has been a vital team member since then.

“Enos has been present for each transformation of the business—from dairy to our White Jug stores to the Royal Farms convenience stores we all know and love today,” wrote Royal Farms in a news release.

In 1999, she became the leader of fuel accounting and has shown no signs of retiring for the last 23 years. She currently lives in Maryland and is very active with her local church. She is a huge advocate for animal rescue and even has pet goats that she loves dearly.

Royal Farms congratulated her on her 65 years of service and thanked her for her unwavering dedication.

Here is what her co-workers had to say about her:

“Jennie has been someone that I depend on greatly. Twenty-three years ago, she and I started the Royal Farms fuel department from the ground up. We had no suppliers, no transportation and no paperwork procedures. In fuel accounting, you must be extremely detail oriented, enjoy working with numbers and have a sense of urgency to get things done. We deliver millions of gallons of fuel each week, every day of the year, so the supplier invoices and delivery bill of ladings never stop. Jennie is one of, if not the best, fuel accounting professionals I have worked with in my 35 years in the fuel business,” said Rob Rinehart, director of fuel services.

“The most dependable and dedicated employee Royal Farms has ever had,” said Frank Schilling, director of marketing and merchandising.

"Ms. Jennie has been an integral pillar of Royal Farms and her dedication and hard work have been an inspiration. We are thankful for her commitment and contributions; we salute her for her outstanding service of 65 years,” said John Kemp, CEO of Royal Farms.

Enos will be celebrating the achievement with a company party, multiple gifts and monetary donations to two of her favorite organizations.
