Brookshire Grocery Company has a rich history dating back to 1928, when Wood T. Brookshire opened a small, 25 x 100-foot store in downtown Tyler, Texas.

In the beginning, Wood was in a partnership with five brothers operating under the “Brookshire Brothers” name. In 1939, the partnership dissolved and Wood became the sole owner of three stores in Tyler that became the seeds of today’s Brookshire Grocery Co.

Today, Brookshire Grocery Co. has more than 150 stores operating in Texas, Louisiana and Arkansas, under four distinct banners.

The company also operates three distribution facilities — two based in Tyler, Texas, and one in Monroe, La. — with more than 2 million total square feet and a company fleet of 72 tractors and more than 300 trailers.

Brookshire’s internal manufacturing facilities include bakery, dairy, ice cream, yogurt, fresh-cut, ice and water/drink plants, all in the Tyler area, which produce a wide variety of award-winning products including the popular Goldenbrook Farms Premium Ice Cream.
