E&H Family Group, parent company of Ohio-based Buehler’s, has sold its 13 supermarkets to employees in the form of an employee stock ownership program (ESOP).
You will be dealing with the same buyer but with a renewed focus on ownership! This is a welcome and much more beneficial outcome than most of the recent buyouts from larger, previously detached entities who can only manage their business from afar.
Buehler’s is extremely progressive and have featured many of our lines over the years. This news is a welcome foothold by the Buehler’s team, which is one that we have worked with for over a 15 years!
After the news was announced, all of the regional Brokers walked their flagship store with Buehle’rs management and buying team and the KeHE management team to address the new platform of ownership moving forward. This is very indicative that they are wanting to expand and readjust their efforts on their former model of fairly progressive offerings, which have greatly benefited our organization throughout the years!
