Busch’s Fresh Food Market

Buschs staff was ready when toilet paper and hand sanitizer began going missing from stores – quickly moving supplies from their distribution center in Clinton to 16 locations throughout Ann Arbor and Saline.

Family-owned chain says its products combine today’s freshness and style with traditional values, personalized service and the wholesome goodness that you expect from your neighborhood grocer.

Fresh Produce

Busch’s provides fresh produce to form the basis of every meal, offering customers access to local fruits and vegetables including heirloom, Roma, sungold and vine tomatoes as well as mushrooms and asparagus in season. In addition, Busch’s offers an extensive range of meats, seafood and dairy products as well.

This company takes great pride in offering only high-quality and fresh products, and prides itself on keeping inventory close by. Their stores are open six days per week with friendly staff providing assistance when selecting items.

Customers in Washtenaw County can visit one of 16 locations, including Ann Arbor and Dexter. At these stores, customers can shop from a selection of groceries as well as beer, wine and liquor, with its bakery providing delicious baguettes, croissants, pies and cookies made by artisans from across southeastern Michigan. Customers also benefit from having Zingerman’s Bakehouse available as a wholesale bakery to specialty food stores and cafes throughout southeastern Michigan.

Busch’s is known for providing quality food products at competitive prices to their neighborhood clients, with traditional values, personal service and wholesomeness you may only find from your neighborhood grocer. Their store has earned numerous accolades for quality items they sell while employees strive to ensure customer satisfaction.

The company encourages its employees to get involved with their community. Through its annual Season of Sharing food drive, which raises both money and food for area food pantries, and four wine-tasting events each year to raise funds for Holy Cross Children’s Services — an outreach service providing outreach programs to youths and families in need — its stores participate in more than 400 events yearly, from providing supplies for school ice cream socials to taking part in small town parades.

Meat & Seafood

Busch’s has everything you need for an exceptional meal – from homemade entrees and side dips, fresh-baked bread, meat and seafood all the way up to homemade desserts – at its locally owned supermarket chain that has been operating since 1975.

Focusing on local is evident in its produce section, where they collaborate with regional wholesalers to source fresh, seasonal fruits and vegetables at their peak quality. Furthermore, this company places high value on its cheese department, unlike many grocery stores that separate mass-produced and artisanal cheeses separately.

Busch’s Store’s beef and chicken departments emphasize quality and consistency. For instance, its beef comes from animals humanely raised on only grain diets without animal by-products; chicken is always freshly marinated with herbs and spices for added flavor; shrimp, salmon and scallops can also be found here along with bulk station produce selection. Plus this location boasts Zingerman’s Bakehouse wholesale offerings perfect for specialty food stores, cafes and restaurants throughout southeast Michigan!

Bakery & Deli

There’s an impressive array of items at this bakery and deli, as well as an excellent beer and liquor selection featuring hard-to-find specialty breweries. Service in the deli is excellent – another reason it pays to support local business!

Busch’s operates 17 stores in southeast Michigan. Their most recent store in Canton boasts an innovative JB’s Smokehouse barbecue restaurant which can be reached either through the supermarket or independently; it sits within a deli/prepared food area and features Starbucks for added convenience, creating a “food court” feel within its walls.

Busch’s also has a massive freezer that serves all its stores by holding cookie dough, portioned muffins, and sweet breads. Kelley Maynard, manager of Busch’s central bakery, says soon they will begin using machines rather than baking most meringues and other cookies locally; this should provide more consistent quality and improved distribution.

Maynard also plans to improve efficiency by investing in new equipment and shifting some processes closer to their plant, including adding a Hinds-Bock depositor and increasing usage of their Vemag frozen cookie dough depositor – this will enable their central kitchen to produce more doughs and muffins daily and distribute them across more stores.

Busch’s is proud to support local communities through charitable contributions. Through its Season of Sharing food drive running until Thanksgiving Day, customers can contribute in cash, canned goods and nonperishable items at any Busch’s store. In addition, four wine tasting events annually benefit Holy Cross Children’s Services which offers services for youths and families in need.

Wine & Liquor

As Autumn Horrocks, co-owner of Busch’s in Kentwood said, one way the Michigan family-owned chain stands out is through offering beer and wine pours. She noted that selling by the glass doesn’t guarantee higher sales alone but requires much labor in order to be successful; currently there are 15 Busch’s stores across Southeast Michigan with plans for their 16th location to open soon in Canton.

The Brighton store will add hundreds of wines and liquors, which will be showcased on industrial wine shelving, endcaps, and refrigerated cases in its beverage area. Additionally, it will upgrade its bakery with new tables, four-door refrigerated pastry cases, reclaimed wood surfaces, and four-door pastry cases with cooling capabilities.

Lenzi explained that Brighton store will offer fashionable items unavailable without traveling down to Ann Arbor. Renovation work would take place at night so as to minimize disruption for customers.

Anheuser-Busch is the world’s largest brewer, with more than 90 percent of sales coming from outside the United States. Their brands include Budweiser, Stella Artois and Corona as well as specialty beverages like Duvel from Belgium and craft-brewed Sam Adams seasonals from Boston. Anheuser-Busch Parks can also be found across Colorado.

Busch’s Fresh Food Market’s stock is listed on the NASDAQ Global Select Market, for more information visit their website or Zippia provides an in-depth view into their details such as salaries, political affiliations and employee data collected via self-reported data from employees, owners or other sources.

Specialty Foods

Busch’s goes beyond offering standard grocery products by featuring items sourced locally. For instance, its bakery department features items made by Zingerman’s Bakehouse from Ann Arbor; Zingerman’s produces artisan breads and pastries for specialty food stores, cafes and restaurants as well as selling its own Busch’s brand of bakery goods in its stores.

As an independent family-owned grocer, Busch’s strives to create a local atmosphere in its stores. This is most evident at its Canton store which houses J.B.’s Smokehouse: an attractive barbecue restaurant accessible either through the supermarket or its own entrance that sits centrally within its deli/prepared foods and food bar area, drawing customers in as a focal point and drawing customers’ attention.

At Forgotten Harvest in Ann Arbor and Food Gatherers in Dexter. In Washtenaw County alone, Forgotten Harvest conducts two big food drives and two milk drives annually to support these local pantries as well as hosting four wine-tasting events annually for Holy Cross Children’s Services.

Busch’s was established in 1975 and today operates 17 stores throughout southeastern Michigan. There are two Ann Arbor locations (one on S. Main Street near Michigan Stadium and another at 7080 Dexter Ann Arbor Rd near Cottage Inn), plus stores in Ann Arbor Township, Dexter, Clinton Farmington Hills Livonia Plymouth/Northville Rochester Hills South Lyon owned privately by the Busch family employing over 13,000 individuals with its headquarters located in Saline Michigan.
