Family Foods

I don't know about you, but I like having a convenient grocery store right here in Warrenville. This week, there is a flyer in the store thanking customers, and asking them to invite friends and neighbors to visit Family Foods. Apparently the store is trying hard to stay afloat and survive the competition of the big chain stores. If you don't use Family Foods regularly, here are some reasons that you might give it a try.


In the last 2 week, I have heard 3 unsolicited recommendations for Family Foods:

  1. A friend told me she held an Italian Beef taste test. She bought Italian Beef from several places and did a blind taste test. The Italian Beef from Family Foods came in 2nd, and was the least expensive. It is now her go-to for a quick dinner or family party.
  2. "Did you know Family Foods has a breakfast buffet on the weekends? We tried it an it was good." (4.99)
  3. "For just $1.10 you can get the best cup of coffee in Warrenville, hands down, at Family's just their plain old regular brew in the pump thermos of the restaurant section ...  a great compliment to the temptations of their great bakery." 

There are other reasons that I like Family Foods.

  • Convenient Time Saver - I can get there, shop, and get home quickly. The store is not too big, so I get thru  quickly, but it has everything I need for most shopping trips.
  • Liquor Department - There is an especially good selection of craft beers at competitive prices
  • NOW Foods Products - Another way to shop local. NOW Foods is based in Glendale Heights. They make vitamins, supplements, personal care, and health food products. Family Foods is one of the few stores in the area that sells NOW foods products (usually at Fruirful Yield).  In general, Family Foods keeps a selection healthy products. (aside - take the Now Foods factory tour to learn more)
  • Meet Friends while you shop- I often run into a friend or neighbor that I have not seen in awhile.
  • Bakery - Last time I ordered a cake, the staff was particularly helpful with decorating and making the cake just as I wanted.  Also a great place for seasonal treats like zeppole, pazcki, hot cross buns, etc. You can take home warm batard bread if you ask to have it baked fresh while you shop.
  • Meat Department - Freindly and helpful staff. If there's something you want, they'll get it for you. Every Thanksgiving, Family Foods features a delicious Houka Turkey
  • Lunch Buffet - An occasional treat - lots of good food for 7.99.

If you want to keep our local grocery story around, don't take it for granted. Shop at Family Foods!
