Heritage’s Dairy family-operated stores are paced by private-label dairy goods and a wide selection of groceries dominating the mix. A milk processor from its inception, Heritage’s launched into retail operations when the company founder noticed that home milk delivery had been decreasing. The company continues to leverage its own proprietary milk recipe.

Foodservice fare includes a wide-ranging breakfast menu, anchored by the Heri-Egg sandwich on a kaiser roll or bagel. Other notable items include chef salads, chicken Caesar salads, subs, sandwiches, Buffalo chicken, turkey club and American, Italian and ham sub wraps.

The company runs a wholesale business where candy, tobacco and groceries are distributed via Heritage’s Wholesale Co., and it operates its own construction and service team, which builds and maintains stores and corporate offices.
