We’re more than a grocery store.

In 1930, Charles Hyde and David Vredenburg opened a small general store in Beaconsfield, Iowa. That store grew to become Hy-Vee — a company known for excellent service, quality and value. As an employee-owned company, Hy-Vee encourages each of our more than 93,000 employees in more than 285 stores across the Midwest to help guide the company.

Our more than 90 years of outstanding success are a testament to our employees’ hard work and dedication to the vision of our founders. Today, Hy-Vee is synonymous with quality, variety, value and superior customer service.

Our employees act like they own the place. Because they do.

Hy-Vee is employee-owned, and the largest single owner is our employees’ retirement plan, The Hy-Vee and Affiliates 401(k) Plan. Every employee is a stakeholder in Hy-Vee’s future and is empowered to make decisions to provide amazing experiences for their customers and coworkers.
