Vancouver, British Columbia--(Newsfile Corp. - January 4, 2023) - The Good Flour Corp. (CSE: GFCO) (OTCQB: GFCOF) (FSE: 3KZ) ("GFCO") is pleased to announce further expansion into the United States with a distribution relationship with Heinen's Grocery Store ("Heinen's"). Heinen's is a family-owned grocery store that has been in existence for over 93 years with 23 locations in Ohio and Illinois. Heinen's will carry GFCO's Artisan Fried Chicken Mix and Artisan Pancake and Waffle Mix. Availability of these products in Heinen's stores is expected to occur in January 2023.
"The addition of Heinen's as a retail partner for GFCO is another significant development. GFCO is building momentum is the retail space in the United States after adding Sprouts Farmer's Market and now Heinen's. Heinen's prides itself on its high standards "you have to find the best to sell the best" and GFCO is excited that its products meet these standards," states Matthew Clayton, CEO of GFCO.
In 1929, local butcher Joe Heinen opened a butcher shop in Shaker Heights after discovering a passion for the trade. In 1933, Joe Heinen pioneered Cleveland's first supermarket across the street from his shop, selling traditional grocery items alongside hand-butchered meats. In the 1930s, bringing these two shopping experiences together was revolutionary in the grocery industry, but what truly set Heinen apart was his commitment to quality.
Joe Heinen's vision lives on 93 years later under the leadership of his twin grandsons, Jeff and Tom Heinen and their children, Kim, Kelsey and Jake Heinen. Together, this family of grocers is focused on making Heinen's relevant in the ever-changing industry through reimagining the traditional grocery store as a destination for quick and easy meals, fresh-overnight seafood, wellness guidance, dietary friendly solutions and traditional in-store butchers.
