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.
Inspired by a photo safari in South Africa, Blue Rhino® came to life. A national distribution network was constructed, retailer partnerships were established, and a new brand was born. Today, Blue Rhino propane tanks are available in more than 50,000 retail locations across the United States, Hawaii and Puerto Rico. And Blue Rhino is still headquartered in Winston Salem, NC.
Cheerwine is a one-of-a-kind soft drink with a unique cherry taste that has been delighting southerners for more than a century. Cheerwine was first created in 1917 in Salisbury, NC by a general store owner named LD Peeler. Today the company is prospering as it celebrates over 100 years in business. Cheerwine remains a family-owned business still operated by descendants of the company’s founder.
Duke’s legacy began in 1917 when Eugenia Duke of Greenville, South Carolina, sold sandwiches spread with her homemade mayonnaise to soldiers stationed at Camp Sevier. Eugenia’s sandwiches quickly became the talk of the town, and everyone agreed that her distinctive mayonnaise was the key to Eugenia’s tasty sandwiches. 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!

Snyder’s of Hanover® (Pennsylvania) began life in 1909 as the Hanover Canning Company, producing Olde Tyme Pretzels. Snyder’s of Hanover® employees continued innovating to improve their products and facilities. Recently a team of employees have worked hard to make all three of Snyder’s of Hanover® pretzel factories certified peanut-free facilities. The thought that some people could not enjoy their snacks due to dietary restrictions was unacceptable, so employees spearheaded the transformation.
