Your Owner Benefits

What does Co-Ownership mean?

Co-Owners get the unique experience of being a part of a truly community-focused business that supports the community’s needs in ways that other business models can’t.

Benefits of Ownership

The biggest benefit of joining the co-op is getting us closer to fulfilling the promise of a full fledged, brick & mortar, community-owned grocery — and participating in building it along the way! When it comes time to pick a spot for our store, Co-Owners will have a say in the location. When deciding on vendor requirements, labeling standards, and sustainability practices, Co-Owners will get to weigh in. Your voice matters, and we are grateful to be building a co-op with you.

As a Co-Owner, you will:

  • Support local farmers & producers
  • Participate in voting elections
  • Be eligible to hold office or join a committee
  • Weigh in on decisions like the store location as we grow
  • Participate in our Frontier buying club
  • Be able to include your local business or organization on our Community page
  • Have access to member discounts once the store opens & earn owner dividends in profitable years
  • Be a part of a truly community-centered business
