About Us - A Michigan Family Business
Ric's Food Center is a Michigan family business offering traditional full-service neighborhood grocery stores. Ric's has been operating since 1977, when founder Richard Woodrick opened our first store in Mt. Pleasant. Today, under the direction of Richard's son, Andy Woodrick, and his partner, Monica Reynolds, Ric's proudly serves the communities of Interlochen, Ithaca, Hemlock, Mount Pleasant and Rockford Michigan.
While much has changed over the years, our commitment to providing value, quality products, and a friendly, service-oriented shopping experience has remained. Many people at Ric's Food Center have poured their efforts and enthusiasm into the company since its inception. The quality of our store's personality is a reflection of the quality of the people who have worked for and grown with the company. Many staff members have chosen to remain with Ric's Food Center for decades, and we think that says a lot about Ric's and the people who are at its heart - our employees and our customers.
Ric's Food Center is proud of its award-winning meat departments where we carry Star Ranch Premium Angus USDA choice grade beef, Hormel Natural Choice fresh pork, and Gerber Amish chicken. Our exceptional produce departments are serviced by quality produce purveyor Heeren Brothers based in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Ric's is a member of the Affiliated Foods Midwest grocery cooperative that recently celebrated its 75th year in business, and we now offer the Shurfine and Shurfresh brand of products, which provide a terrific value - high quality with a great price. Our bakery and deli departments strive to provide freshness and convenience to our shoppers. We feature Boar's Head and Eckrich (Boar's Head not avalilable in all stores) meats and cheeses, sliced to order with care and a smile; all-natural Amish rotisserie chickens, hot and ready to serve; and Ric's own signature salads and fresh baked breads, innovative and delicious!
Thank you for shopping with us. We are proud to be your neighborhood grocer!
