Hispanic grocery store Fresco y Más is celebrating its fifth birthday and founding anniversary. The retailer is part of Jacksonville, Florida-based Southeastern Grocers Inc., which also is home to Harveys Supermarkets and Winn-Dixie grocery stores.
The first Fresco y Más location opened its doors on June 15, 2016 in Hialeah, Florida, to provide customers with an authentic Hispanic shopping experience complete with products and services that the community desired. Fresco y Más has grown to 27 locations throughout South, Southwest and Central Florida and continues to serve as a community hub for families wishing to create authentic Hispanic meals.
“At Fresco y Más, we are devoted to providing our customers with an authentic Hispanic shopping experience that truly reflects the desires of the local community,” said Sergio Benitez, director of operations for Fresco y Más. “Over the past five years, we have had the great opportunity to provide unique ingredients for our wonderful customers to create traditional Hispanic recipes to enjoy with their families and introduce new generations to the unique flavors of our culture. We have cherished these opportunities and look forward to continuing to play a vital role in our communities for years to come.”
To celebrate the milestone birthday, customers who have downloaded the Fresco y Más app and signed-up for Fresco y Más rewards, or who sign-up now through June 21, can receive a 20x Mystery Bonus points multiplier and a free SE Grocers Mojo Marinade as a thank you for the five years of support.
