How We Started:

In 1947 at Grandview Market in Edina, Jerry Paulsen was the neighborhood butcher, the kind of man who knew all of his customers by name and cut their steaks and chops to order. At Jerry’s meat counter, there was no such thing as self-service. You got full service and you always got what you wanted and a little more. As luck would have it, one day the Grandview Market was put up for sale and Jerry seized the opportunity to make it his own. What Jerry saw was the possibility to deliver the kind of personalized service he dreamed of, so he jumped at the chance and opened Jerry’s Lucky Dollar.

Jerry’s Lucky Dollar continued to grow and expand into a full-service grocery store known far and wide for its incredible meat and seafood department. In time, the market became known simply as Jerry’s Foods and stores were added in Eden Prairie, Minnesota and Sanibel Island, Florida under the Jerry’s Foods Banners. Jerry Paulsen continued to work at the Edina store well into his eighties, until he passed away in 2013.

Today, each Jerry’s Foods store is an integral part of their neighborhood. From specialty foods that reflect their locations, to hiring practices and services, Jerry’s Foods has remained committed to sustaining Jerry Paulsen’s dedication to personalized service, his passion for food, and the importance of a family work environment.
