Enters Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex!

 Our Story 


Founded in 1905 and built on a $60 investment, H-E-B began as a small family grocery store in the Hill Country town of Kerrville, Texas. Today, H-E-B is one of the nation’s largest independently-owned food retailers dedicated to exceptional customer service, low prices, top quality products, and innovative shopping options such as Curbside pickup and Home Delivery.

More than a retailer, H-E-B is deeply committed to our customers beyond stores, through passionate public service in the more than 300 communities we serve. Known as the H-E-B Spirit of Giving, the tradition can be traced to the company’s earliest days when H-E-B founder Florence Butt and her youngest son, Howard, took food baskets to the homeless that lived along the banks of the Guadalupe River. Our Spirit of Giving remains steadfast and is a key part of everyday business at H-E-B. Each year, H-E-B donates five percent of pre-tax annual earnings to charitable organizations focused on hunger relief, education, health, military, environmental sustainability, and diversity and inclusion initiatives.

At H-E-B, Each & Every Person Counts. Regularly named a top employer and retailer, H-E-B’s more than 137,000 Partners (employees), who are owners in our company, are at the heart of what makes our business successful and great. With a humility rooted in our Helping Here philosophy, H-E-B’s Partners serve all Texans with open arms and a smile, and demonstrate our collective commitment to take care of Texas.

Headquartered in San Antonio, H-E-B has annual sales exceeding $32 billion and more than 420 stores throughout Texas and Mexico.
