No. Even though a lot of our independently owned and operated stores share the SUPER A FOODS and BIGWAY FOODS store name, they are not all corporately owned or a part of a franchise. These stores are under what we call a “Banner” name, which gives them brand recognition across Western Canada, but doesn’t limit the flexibility they have as independent owners.
Warehouse Markets are the best of both the foodservice and retail world. You get a large selection of foodservice products but at a retail store. There are no membership fees and customers have the choice to buy in bulk or retail sizes.
Anyone with a TGP account number can attend the TGP Food Show. Please see the Foodservice section for more information.
There are many benefits to being a TGP customer which include:
We’re close by. Based centrally in Western Canada, TGP trucks can deliver to just about anywhere in Western and Northern Canada.
We’re a part of a large company. In 2013, the Financial Post Magazine ranked Federated Co-operatives Limited, our parent company, 48th for overall sales and 44th for overall earnings in 2012. Because of our size, we can provide our customers with a growing variety of retail and foodservice products at a competitive price.
We’re friendly. It may seem like a small detail, but we work hard to create a great experience for our customers each and every time. We are always asking ourselves how we can serve our customers better and we have an entire team ready to serve you.
We are always looking for new customers. Please feel free to send an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org or call us toll free at 1-800-461-9401. We would love to learn more about you and how we can help serve you!
An independently owned store or food establishment means the owner(s) has total control over his/her business. They have the freedom to decide what’s best for the communities they serve and they are often locally invested within their communities. Most independent stores or food establishments are better able to respond to the needs of their community because they are active members of the communities they serve.
