Oldsmar Mayor Doug Bevis.
Representatives of the company recently met with City officials, organizations and business owners, and Oldsmar Mayor Doug Bevis came away impressed.
“They’re very community involved,” Bevis told Oldsmar Connect earlier this month. “They met with representatives of the Chamber of Commerce, the Rotary Club. They want to be involved with the Woman’s Club. They’re big on educating people about the benefits of healthy eating.
“I think the grocery business is a growing market and I think this is a good alternative to what’s out there. I think it’s another good (business) partner for Oldsmar.”
