HT Home Town

Home Town is Harris Teeter’s way of showing our neighborly side. 

It’s much more than a smile and courteous service though. It’s a way of doing business. 

One that benefits the local economy, local institutions and local people. It’s a state of mind.

Ever since W.T. Harris and W.L. Teeter got together, the focus has been on people: as customers and as neighbors. As Harris Teeter grew as a business, the philosophy of community support also grew, each new store bringing a new neighborhood to serve as a grocer and as a community member. This spirit has shown up in everything from local sports, to education, to regionally sourced products, to jobs, to food banks, to disaster relief, to helping U.S. service men and women…the list goes on and on. When it comes to being a good neighbor, the possibilities are limitless.

People throughout the Carolinas shared Duke’s Mayonnaise with their friends and family, and today people all over the United States regard Duke’s as the secret to great food. Duke’s Mayonnaise is still made in Eugenia Duke’s hometown of Greenville, South Carolina, at a plant that produces over 250 of the classic 32-ounce jars per minute.

Lance® was born out of a true entrepreneurial spirit when, in 1913, founder Philip L. Lance got stuck with 500 pounds of raw peanuts. Instead of backing out of his deal, the Charlotte, NC food broker had a revelation: roast and sell the nuts for a nickel a bag. The freshly roasted peanuts were an immediate success and Philip Lance was inspired to expand his line to include peanut butter. After that he was on his way. Today, that sort of innovative passion is alive and well with Lance® employees, such as those who embarked on an initiative to achieve working towards zero-waste-to-landfill. That’s the sort of Home Town spirit we love to see!

In 1873, the Deer Park Hotel opened its doors to visitors traveling to the oh-so-beautiful Appalachian Mountains. Built as a premier resort and spa, the hotel quickly added "natural spring" to its list of amenities. They began bottling water from nearby Boiling Spring (named for appearance, not temperature) for guests to enjoy — including famous folks like Presidents Cleveland and Taft. 

Today, the Deer Park Brand continues to spread refreshment throughout this great region. While we no longer bottle our natural spring water from the famous Boiling Spring, we've expanded our reach further than ever before, sourcing water from 13 springs across four states. These springs continue to keep the folks refreshed — and ensure the Deer Park legacy lives on for centuries to come.

The sense of civic enterprise at its founding has remained part of Mt. Olive’s culture for over nine decades. Mt. Olive was among the first in the nation, back in 1943, to implement a profit sharing plan. That plan is still in place today. Mt. Olive started a tuition reimbursement program in the 1950s, paying for employees to improve their education and training. When hard economic times hit the Town of Mount Olive in the early 1970s, the company paid its taxes in advance to help the town’s cash flow. In 2016, the company made just over $770,000 in financial and product contributions to the Food Bank of Central & Eastern North Carolina, the University of Mount Olive and hundreds of community, educational, and nonprofit organizations throughout the region.

It all started back in 1940, when Dean and Betty Arnold opened their own bakery out of a tiny house in Stamford, CT. Back then, you couldn’t find the premium bread that we love today.

Today, though Dean and Betty no longer make the bread themselves, Arnold® bakes its loaves in local bakeries around the country, including one in Gastonia, NC. We are still committed to bringing you bread you can believe in—so you can live your life and love your loaf.

In 1949, bakery entrepreneur Charlie Lubin chose to name his new line of cheesecakes and bakery business after his 8-year-old daughter, Sara Lee.

Over the decades, Sara Lee’s products have delighted millions around the world, becoming one of the best-loved American brands. In 2001, we expanded beyond sweet baked goods into fresh bread products with the acquisition of The EarthGrains Company.

Hunter Farms, maker of Simple Truth Organic milk, is proud to be a Harris Teeter Home Town partner. We appreciate our role as a source for quality products and their positive impact on people’s nutritional health. Like Harris Teeter, we started as a small North Carolina business and through a dedication to our small community of neighbors and farmers 100 years ago, grew to our wonderful role as Harris Teeter’s store brand dairy.

In 1949, Larry Monahan began to sell roasted nuts to passing tourists from his family owned restaurant in Virginia. It was then that the beloved Peanut Roaster brand was born.

The peanut business quickly outgrew the restaurant. In 1985, a peanut processing facility was opened in Cary, NC. A bit over 10 years later, in 1997, a new production and distribution facility in Henderson, NC was opened as business outgrew the current facility. Using the same recipe as in 1949, and some innovative flavored peanut recipes, business grew quickly. The Peanut Roaster surpassed others in the industry by roasting and packaging peanuts daily, which created a reputation for quality and freshness, and by providing patrons with deliciously different flavored peanuts.
