On Sept. 1, 1928, our Company founder Wood T. Brookshire opened a small grocery store on the courthouse square in downtown Tyler, Texas.
W.T. Brookshire began with four employees in a small, 2,500-square-feet store. He laid a foundation of core values focused on incredible customer service, tenacity and competitive grit. W.T. Brookshire believed it was his God given calling to serve his community through the grocery industry. Because of that, Brookshire Grocery Co. is still family-owned with members of the third- and fourth-generation leading the Company.
At BGC, our number one focus is on people. Our tradition of outstanding service was instilled 90 years ago when W.T. Brookshire made the decision to place the customer as his top priority. This same commitment extends to our employee-partners – the more than 13,000 people who help make BGC successful every day.
The company has come a long way since 1928 – but is still focused on offering the same exceptional customer service it was founded on. Our mission is to create and deliver exceptional experiences and value to our customers through the W.T. Brookshire Way.
