Description

Since the beginning of our organizing efforts, we have sought out the vast resources available to help new co-ops get off the ground successfully. As the saying goes, "why re-invent the wheel?" The wheel is a development model based on co-ops’ best practices in establishing a new co-op. This model, along with the corresponding support from industry-specific expertise, has guided us and keeps us focused as we navigate through the multi-faceted, complex process of opening a community-owned, full-service grocery store.

Throughout our start-up phase and beyond, we will also look to our owners to learn how we can best serve your needs, which makes the co-op stronger and helps us accomplish our collective mission.
