Our Philosophy

We believe in quality experiences. Our relentless attention to detail, fierce commitment to quality, and peerless customer satisfaction lie at the heart of everything we do.

Whether sharing dinner with friends or indulging in a simple snack, food remains central to our human experience. After 50 years in business and over 11 million customers served at our family of restaurants, we are expanding our services through Grocer Collective while staying true to our core philosophy.   

Specialty Products

Although it seems we have almost unlimited options, the diversity of products available at stores and restaurants only scratches the surface of what is truly available. That is why we love discovering exciting products and sharing them with our customers.

Supporting Local

Things are changing and our society is recognizing how important it is to support local communities. This is why we are building a network of local suppliers and a streamlined process for customers to meaningfully engage with regional food production.

Quality Ingredients

Quality means more than simply good taste and nutrition. Traditional food systems and sprawling supply chains often obscure what happens behind the scenes. As a result, we conduct due diligence on our products to ensure each item meets our ethical and sustainability standards.

Natalie Lynn

Natalie is an enthusiastic lover of all things creative and connective when it comes to food. Whether working on product development for Grocer Collective, concocting new flavors for Counterpart Kombucha, or connecting with others through food-her passion is clear. When she isn’t working, she can be found listening to show tunes, painting, watching a good movie or playing with her cats, Mango and Peach!
