Farm Stores Franchising has announced the completed acquisition of the operations and trade name of Swiss Farms stores in Delaware County, Pennsylvania.
The two brands are the oldest and largest drive-thru grocery chains in the U.S., dating back to 1957 in Florida and 1968 in Pennsylvania, and bring together the most experienced management teams in the industry as they continue to grow towards their 10 year goal of 1,000 stores across the United States.
The newly merged teams are leading the expansion of the Farm Stores drive-thru neighborhood store concept in ten states, from Arizona to Connecticut. There are over 50 franchises operating or in construction from Arizona to Connecticut.
The Swiss Farms stores in Delaware County will launch the Farm Stores in-store bakery program in 2021, and two of their 10 stores have become franchised locations.
The company is accepting applications from qualified prospective franchisees in eastern PA and the northeast to expand the reach of the beloved DelCo and Florida concepts to new neighborhoods.
