H. E. Butt Grocery Company Company Profile

The Muzak bounces between Tejano and country, and the warm tortillas and marinated fajita meat are big sellers at H. E. Butt Grocery (H-E-B). Texas' largest private company and the #1 food retailer in South and Central Texas, H-E-B owns more than 350 supermarkets, including a growing number of large (70,000 sq. ft.) gourmet Central Market stores in major metropolitan areas and 80-plus smaller (24,000-30,000 sq. ft.) H-E-B-Pantry stores, often in more rural areas. H-E-B also has more than 45 upscale and discount stores in Northern Mexico. H-E-B processes some of its own bread, dairy products, meat, and tortillas. The 109-year-old company is owned by the Butt family, which founded H-E-B in Kerrville, Texas, in 1905.
