Company News: BGC Celebrates 90th Anniversary


TYLER, Texas, Aug. 31, 2018 – Brookshire Grocery Co. (BGC) will celebrate 90 years of serving customers and communities on Sept. 1.

BGC was founded by Wood T. (W.T.) Brookshire, who opened the company’s first store on Sept. 1, 1928, in downtown Tyler, Texas. W.T. believed it was his calling to serve people through the grocery business and built BGC on a strong foundation of core values that continue to guide the company today.

In 90 years, BGC has grown from one store to over 180 locations in Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas under the Brookshire’s, Super 1 Foods, FRESH by Brookshire’s and Spring Market banners. Following the founder’s example, BGC remains deeply committed to serving customers and the 150 communities where it operates stores.

Each year, the company’s giving program assists hundreds of nonprofit organizations that support its primary causes of hunger relief, education, family health and wellbeing, and military heroes and first responders. Employees collectively volunteer 20,000 hours annually assisting communities and nonprofit organizations.

In the past 30 years, the Brookshire’s Benefit Golf Tournament has awarded more than $5.5 million to nonprofits that serve causes the company supports. BGC’s Heroes Flight program has escorted more than 400 World War II veterans on all-expenses paid trips to Washington, D.C., to see the memorials dedicated to their service. BGC also hosts two annual races ­– the FRESH 15 in Tyler and the Brookshire’s and Super 1 Foods Heroes Run in Shreveport. These races have raised more than $600,000 for charities since 2014. The company’s annual Spirit of Christmas Food Drive assists approximately 16,000 households each year, providing about 500,000 pounds of food to people in need.

“We are very excited to be celebrating our 90th anniversary,” said Brad Brookshire, Chairman and CEO for Brookshire Grocery Co. “My grandfather founded Brookshire Grocery Company out of his passion for serving others. Today, our mission is still to create exceptional experiences and value for our customers through the core values our company was built upon. We look forward to many more years of serving our customers and communities.”

Brookshire Grocery Co. Hosts Dinner for 16th WWII Heroes Flight Veterans


TYLER, Texas, July 30, 2018 – World War II veterans and close to 150 of their family members gathered Thursday at Scott Events Center in Scott, Louisiana, to reunite and celebrate Brookshire Grocery Co.’s 16th Heroes Flight to Washington, D.C., which took place in May.

The Company provided dinner and presented the veterans with a memory book, a CD with more than 400 pictures, and a video of their trip on DVD, which was shown at the dinner. Company volunteers who assisted the veterans during the trip also attended.

Brookshire Grocery Co.’s WWII Heroes Flight is an all-expenses-paid trip to Washington, D.C., provided by the Company to honor veterans for their service and sacrifices. BGC has taken 440 veterans from Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas to Washington, D.C., since establishing the program in 2010.

Twenty-four veterans, mostly from the Lafayette, Louisiana, area, were on the trip in May, and all but one served in World War II. The other was a Korean War veteran. Among the veterans on this trip were Joe Richard, a Pearl Harbor survivor; Hewitt Gomez, a Congressional Gold Medal recipient; and Wilson T. Robertson, who at age 102 is said to be the oldest living WWII veteran in Louisiana.

The Heroes Flight trip included visits to the WWII Memorial, U.S. Capitol, Arlington National Cemetery and the Air and Space Museum, along with memorials honoring the U.S. Marines, Navy, Air Force, Abraham Lincoln, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Martin Luther King Jr., and Vietnam and Korean War veterans.

Proceeds from our annual Brookshire’s and Super 1 Foods Heroes Run in downtown Shreveport helps provide for programs that benefit local first responders and military heroes.”
