Texas shoppers love H-E-B grocery stores!

Ranking as a leader in grocery sales nowadays, H-E-B. has many interesting historical facts that may surprise its customers. Yet, it almost did not open because its founder had tuberculosis. Nevertheless, with some good healthcare treatment, the owner’s dream came true!

Although the slogan for H-E-B manifests clear as “Here Everything is Better”, still the actual meaning lies within the store’s founder’s name, Howard Edward Butt senior. Also, many Texans believe the first store opened in San Antonio, but its history reveals Kerrville as this grocery store’s initial birthplace.

Unlike some grocery stores that have stayed banal and ordinary during their growth, H-E-B has expanded and diversified for over 100 years, and now customers can find every  customary grocery product including H-E-B brand name products. H-E-B offers everything from brand name chips to their own two lines of stainless steel pans and cutlery, and these added categories and items draw more shoppers to their stores. Moreover, as an added feature to attract different ethnic customers, they also carry some favorite imported food products.

H-E-B offers services for both their customers and workers to make a happy shopping experience and an excellent work environment. It provides over 1000 products  at lower cost for their customers, yet it also has top food preparation workers at almost every store, even opening their own culinary school in San Antonio. This wonderful food store has grown from an average grocery outlet to a connoisseur’s delight.

Along with these benefits, H-E-B now offers its staff company stock with a goal of allowing up to 15% company ownership to employees who operate their stores. This practice both improves customer service and enhances company morale, and even better customer service and exalted morale makes the company have outstanding operations. Rather than dissatisfied workers continuously leaving the company, many employees seek long term careers with this organization owing to their generous salary benefits and good working conditions.

Not an ordinary store, but an innovative one!
