H-E-B Plus and Stone Oak Market Store Review

So everyone knows that H.E.B. has been around forever and a day. Most of the time you get a hit or miss with the standard HEB stores. Some dirty, some clean, some with rude employees, some not. You just never know “what” you’re gonna get! Well they certainly raised the bar when the opened HEB Plus! The people are ALWAYS friendly, helpful, and best of all the stores are CLEAN!

What I find to be the coolest thing is they actually demonstrate the reciepes they print in the monthy newsletter/advertisement. You can try most of the items featured w/o spending bookoo bucks and then hating it.

H-E-B A Family Business

In 1905, Charles C. and Florence Butt moved their three sons from Memphis, Tennessee, to Kerrville in the Texas Hill Country. With an initial investment of only $60, Florence opened the C.C. Butt Grocery Store on November 26.

The youngest son, Howard E., became intrigued with the grocery business. He took over the family business in 1919, upon his return from World War I. In 1924, he expanded the Butt Grocery Company with a new store in Junction, about 60 miles from Kerrville. Howard’s motto was, “He profits most who serves best.”

Charles, the youngest son of Howard E. Butt, became president of the H.E. Butt Grocery Company in 1971. Today, Charles Butt is chairman and CEO of H-E-B, having grown the business from sales of $250 million in 1971 to $11 billion in 2003.

Florence Butt opened her first store with a set of beliefs that were passed on to her sons, grandsons, and great-grandsons. Good principles and a can-do attitude, whether times are good or bad, are at the heart of H-E-B’s success.
