Nick Harroz, Jr. founded Crest Foods in 1946, with the purchase of Brett Drive Grocery in Midwest City from his stepbrother. In 1997, Harroz opened the third Crest Foods in Edmond, choosing the city because of its growing economy and perfect location. This location would also house the Crest Foods Corporate Headquarters.

Over approximately 70 years, Crest Foods has grown from a single grocery store to eight stores located around the metro area. With requests every day for more stores, the company plans to expand to two more locations in the metro area. Crest also recently purchased a new Distribution Center to accommodate its expanding business and to help keep its Rock Bottom Prices - Rock Bottom.

Even with continued growth, the company's number one priority every year is to continue driving prices down while still delivering full customer service, including customer requests for new products, sacking groceries and carryout to your car.

The Oklahoma owned and operated company also gives back to the community, donating $75,000 to the Oklahoma Food bank as well as participating in fundraisers for Children's Hospital and Battered Women.

Crest Foods is truly excited to be part of the growth happening in the state.
