Our story began in 1931 when a group of independent grocers near Plainview, Nebraska, joined together to form a wholesale buying group. Our founders built our business model in the cooperative spirit. We continue the same business practices today – focusing on the independent grocer. We do not own or operate any stores, so our entire focus in helping our member-owners succeed.
Our mission is to provide our member-owners with quality goods and services to compete, grow and be profitable.
We own and operate three distribution centers totaling 2,130,000 square feet. Our corporate headquarters are located in Norfolk, Nebraska. Our other two centers are located in Elwood, Kansas, and Kenosha, Wisconsin.
