TYLER – Brookshire Grocery Co. has been named on Forbes’ inaugural list of America’s Best-in-State Employers for Texas.
“We are honored to be recognized as one of America’s top employers in Texas,” Brookshire Chairman and CEO Brad Brookshire said.
The selection was based on an independent survey from a vast sample of more than 80,000 U.S. employees working for companies employing at least 500 people. Participants were asked to rate their willingness to recommend their employer to friends and family.
Based in Tyler, BGC is a regional family-owned grocery business with roughly 14,000 employees in Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas. The company operates more than 175 stores under the Brookshire’s, Super 1 Foods, FRESH by Brookshire’s, and Spring Market banners, along with three distribution centers and corporate offices.
BGC honors its employees annually for their years of service, leadership, and performance.
The company strives to be an employer of choice by offering professional development and generous benefits, including medical, prescription drug, vision, dental, paid time off, stock ownership, a 401K retirement plan, incentive plans, employee discounts, educational scholarships, and use of a 205-acre recreational facility on Lake Palestine. In addition, BGC established its Partner Care Fund in 2018 to assist employees in need.
“Our company is very proud to employ many talented individuals who are passionate about serving others and committed to living out our core values,” Brookshire said.
“We want to thank all of our incredible employee-partners for everything they do to deliver exceptional experiences and value to our customers.”
