Buehler’s Fresh Foods grocery store was founded in 1929 by E.L. (Ed) Buehler and his wife, Helen. The store is still run by the Buehler family, and has grown to 13 stores – all in northeast Ohio.
After opening their first store in New Philadelphia, the Buehler family moved the business to Wooster in 1932 and opened a store near the northeast corner of Public Square. The new store prospered under Ed’s direction with his emphasis on customer service, free delivery, garden-fresh produce and a clean, friendly grocery store atmosphere.
Today, Buehler’s Fresh Foods is still owned by the Buehler family and operated by its “third generation” from the store’s Wooster headquarters. The Buehlers’ innovative and creative spirit has made the Ohio grocery store chain a pacesetter for independent grocers nationwide.
Our mission is still simple and straightforward–to offer an exceptional shopping experience that exceeds each customer’s changing expectations through friendly, caring people and personal relationships based on trust.
