Jay C Food - Groceries since 1862
Jay C Food is a grocery retail chain that was founded in southern Indiana by Jonathan Groub in 1862. The first store was opened in Seymour, Indiana and grew quickly. The revenue exceeded $80,000 by 1885, following first the expansion of the original store and the addition of a wholesale section. When Groub passed away in 1888, ownership of the company was passed down to his son, Theodore, who later passed down leadership of the company to his two sons, Thomas and John. In the 1940s, the retailer reached 44 store locations. Today there are 31 locations in the Indiana area, and the company headquarters remains in Seymour.
