Posted October 06, 2019 05:04:58When a store opens, it’s usually a small and often unassuming one.
But not when it’s called Pioneer.
It’s a grocery store, a pharmacy, and a grocery delivery service.
And it’s a winner.
The chain, known for its small-format, hand-made grocery products, is opening a store in the small Florida town of Lake Worth.
The store is part of a growing trend of small, locally owned stores opening in major metropolitan areas across the U.S. and Canada, according to the New York Times.
The company is also planning to open a store near Tampa in the near future.
We asked a representative for the chain about the size of its Lake Worth store and whether it’s possible for its store to become a chain.
“We don’t have a specific location, but we’re working with some of the larger retailers and are hoping to open in the next few months,” the representative told the newspaper.
“It would make sense for us to expand into the area because it is an underserved market,” the spokesperson added.
Pioneer is a relatively new franchisee, and the company has only about 10 stores in the U-S.
A new grocery store is usually a good sign for a brand.
And this one isn’t too shabby either.
The grocery store was originally established in 2011, according the Tampa Bay Times, and was initially called the Pioneer Food Mart.
It has a full-service pharmacy and a full kitchen, according Pioneer.
The new location, the chain said, is intended to fill the “huge void” in Lake Worth.
“The store itself will be a fully stocked food hall with a large grocery and health foods selection, as well as a full restaurant menu,” the chain’s website states.
PilotStore was founded by two Florida men, David Graziano and Justin Smith.
The company has over 30 stores, according Business Insider.
It’s unclear if this is the first time the two men have opened grocery stores.
They had opened a chain of stores in Texas and Arizona before, and in 2013 they opened a Florida store.
