Metcalfe's: Family Owned Since 1917
The Metcalfe's Market was officially founded in 1917 by Henry and Teresa Hess -- the great-grandparents of the current owners Tim & Kevin Metcalfe. The legacy began in Butler, Wisconsin on North 124th Street -- a suburb of Milwaukee. The company originally helped inspire a co-op grocery space in some of their property, which supported a local movement. This movement aimed to inspire collective buying power to obtain lower prices on grocery items.
In 1937, Henry Hess sold the store to his son-in-law Vern Metcalfe, who introduced a new angle to the business along with his Wife Mary: they started grocery delivery. Since then, the company has realized expansion, while keeping the business within the family. Fun fact: the company became 100% green powered in 2008, effectively offsetting 100% of its emission of CO2.
