“As a part of the St. Louis business community for more than 80 years, we feel we have an obligation to help those local restaurant entrepreneurs and their staffs who have been greatly impacted by the pandemic,” said Dave Peacock, president and chief operating officer of Schnucks. “Schnucks hopes that by supporting local restaurants that our customers will continue to support local businesses too.”
Schnucks’ support of restaurants extends beyond the grab-and-go meals that are now available to customers. The company has also purchased instore catering from more than 75 local restaurants to serve to Schnucks teammates. Schnucks will look to expand this concept to additional stores in the St. Louis area.
