In 1883, Barney Kroger spent his life savings of $372 on a stand-alone grocery store at 66 Pearl Street, Cincinnati, Ohio. His motto was modest: “Be particular. Never sell anything you would not want yourself.” Fast forward to the present, the Kroger Company remains particular about how their customers and community are served, the way they innovate, and who they employ.
Kroger is the United States’ largest grocer with almost 2,800 stores across 35 states which you may know by 28 different names. Today’s business practices are founded in Barney Kroger’s initial efforts to serve customers with fresh food, low prices, and innovation—rudiments that remain at the core of the Kroger mission today.
The Schultz Brothers Company was founded in 1911 and became “Schultz Brothers Company Wholesale Grocers” by 1920. The Company joined a franchise agreement in 1949, allowing them to operate as Piggly Wiggly in southern and eastern Wisconsin. The original Piggly Wiggly franchisers started in Sturgeon Bay, Manitowoc, Green Bay, and Kaukauna.
The Company purchased the Sav-O Corporation (a company involved in the trading stamp business) in 1962. to create “Schultz Sav-O Stores, Inc.” The merger led to the successful innovation of a highly complex electronic marketing/customer relationship program. The Piggly Wiggly Preferred Club Card marketing program was launched in 1995, followed by the Pig Points gas discount program in 2006. While Clarence Saunders’ reasoning for the name “Piggly Wiggly” remains unknown, the Company’s intricate marketing strategy and efficient business approach (known as “The Program”) has steered the business to success.
