Southeastern Grocers, parent company and home of Fresco y Más, Harveys Supermarket, and Winn-Dixie grocery stores, is celebrating the fifth birthday and founding anniversary of the growing Hispanic grocery store Fresco y Más.
The first Fresco y Más location opened its doors on June 15, 2016, in Hialeah, Fla., to provide customers with an authentic Hispanic shopping experience complete with products and services that the community desired. Since the Hispanic supermarket has grown to 27 locations throughout South, Southwest, and Central Florida, and continues to delight customers and serve as a community hub for families wishing to create authentic Hispanic meals.
Sergio Benitez, Director of Operations for Fresco y Más, said, “At Fresco y Más, we are devoted to providing our customers with an authentic Hispanic shopping experience that truly reflects the desires of the local community. Over the past five years, we have had the great opportunity to provide unique ingredients for our wonderful customers to create traditional Hispanic recipes to enjoy with their families and introduce new generations to the unique flavors of our culture. We have cherished these opportunities and look forward to continuing to play a vital role in our communities for years to come.”
