Our History: Local to the Core
We’re owned by Associated Food Stores, based out of Salt Lake City, Utah. Our company has been in the Utah community for over 77-years. We’re basically the hub for locally-owned, independent grocery stores. In 1940 several grocers decided fight back against large, big-box grocery chains. Rather than shutting their doors, the locally-owend family-run grocers decided to work together to have better buying power and whola —Associated Food Stores was born. We are local—and we haven’t forgotten our roots.
Our Beeliefs are the core foundation of who we are. They are our values, and we live and buzz by them. These Beeliefs are not only promises to our guests, they are commitments that we keep to ourselves– and we hold them near and dear to our heart. #Beeliefs #MissionStatement #CoreValues #ABeeWithMeaning
Farm to Table
We hang our hat on something near and dear to our hearts – produce. That’s why we’re more than just a grocery store — we’re a produce company. From sweet crunchy apples to crisp lettuce and all the variety of freshness that’s in between, our produce is top-notch thanks to our bumbling little pals –honey bees.

We believe Utah is the best, and has the best of everything you could want or need*. From local produce to local partnerships from 801, 435 and 385 artisans, producers and growers.
