Stewart's has more than 330 stores in upstate New York and southwestern Vermont. While mostly owned by the family of chairman William Dake, employees also own approximately 40% of the company through an employee stock ownership plan (ESOP).
Stewart's is known regionally for its milk, ice cream, coffee, food to go, gasoline and other convenience items. The company has an extensive production, distribution and warehousing network that supplies its stores. As a result, the chain is unique in the number of products it produces in its own facilities, including 20-ounce "refresher" teas and dairy drinks. It also offers a private-label craft beer.
For benchmarking purposes, store counts are year-end 2019.
