We’re more than just 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 and reasonable prices. As an employee-owned company, Hy-Vee encourages each of our more than 81,000 employees in more than 235 stores over eight states to help guide the company.

Our eight decades 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.

Original Store in Beaconsfield

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

Hy-Vee is employee-owned by direct stockholders — officers, store directors and executive staff members — and indirect stockholders, the more than 30,000 Hy-Vee employees who participate in The Hy-Vee and Affiliates 401(k) Plan.

A portion of the matching contributions made by the company to The Hy-Vee and Affiliates 401(k) Plan is directed to the Hy-Vee Stock Fund. This account is the largest shareholder in the company. Every employee is a stakeholder in the company’s future, each with the opportunity to ensure memorable shopping experiences for our customers.
