Hy-Vee Food Stores

Hy-Vee Food Stores is an employee-owned chain of supermarkets located in the Midwest United States. Over 100 stores are located in Iowa, but there are some in Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, and South Dakota. They also operate 26 Drug Town pharmacies in Iowa and Nebraska.

Hy-Vee is known for its longtime advertising slogan, "Where there's a helpful smile in every aisle."


In 1930, the first Hy-Vee store was started in Beaconsfield, Iowa, by Charles Hyde and David Vredenburg. More stores were started, and in 1938, they incorporated into Hyde & Vredenburg, Inc., which is now the contraction of the two names, Hy-Vee Inc

Hy-Vee moved its corporate offices from Chariton, Iowa, to West Des Moines, Iowa, in 1995.
