Sampling of Top Employers

E & J Gallo Winery   

The world's largest winery proudly calls Modesto home and owns one quarter of all wine produced in the world! That's right, if you have four bottles of wine in your home, chances are at least one of them is a Gallo product. Gallo’s labels represent diverse and growing regions throughout the globe, range from jug wine to top shelf labels like Bran Caia and Clarendon Hills.

From its humble beginnings (Gallo was founded with $5,000 by the sons of an Italian immigrant who learned the technical aspects of wine making from pre-prohibition documents found in the basement of the Modesto library) the company has grown into a four billion dollar annual operation with over 5,000 employees in a wide variety of jobs – ranging from marketing to design, legal to science. In fact, Peter Cousins, who grew up in the area and started his education at Modesto Junior College before going to Stanford for a bachelor’s degree in biological sciences and then earning a doctorate in viticulture and genetics at UC Davis, leads the grapevine improvement program. Previously, he was a grape rootstock breeder and geneticist with the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

Prime Shine

Prime Shine Car Wash opened its first location in Modesto on North McHenry Avenue on April 11, 1991.

What started as a single-location car wash founded with the goal of changing the way Californians think about washing their cars has grown to become California’s largest independently owned car wash chain with 17 locations. Prime Shine was the first of its kind in the state, serving customers looking for a high-quality wash, at a reasonable price, with friendly and professional staff.

With a top-to-bottom clean that is value-priced, and finished in just three minutes, Prime Shine has filled the niche between time consuming and pricey full-service washes, and the do-it-yourself option.
