Food City, which entered the Chattanooga market in 2015 when it purchased 29 Bi-Lo supermarkets in the Chattanooga area, opened its 42nd Starbucks retail outlet Monday at its newly remodeled Red Bank store. Steve Smith, president of Food City and CEO, stated that the addition of Starbucks has helped to attract more grocery shoppers into local Food City stores. It also has increased on-premise food purchases in the prepared foods sections of Food City outlets.

“It adds to our overall offering in our stores, and we have found it is particularly helpful in drawing in younger shoppers and those picking up or eating in our food court area,”Smith spoke at Monday’s ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new Starbucks. “Our relationship with Starbucks has worked out great and is really one of the best things we have tried.”

Food City has been a franchisee for Starbucks since 2017 and opened a similar Starbucks last October at the Food City store in Ooltewah and operates other Starbucks locally in Hixson and East Ridge.

Smith said that Food City will have Starbucks in all of its new stores and many of its grocery outlets after they are renovated. The Red Bank grocery store, measuring 49,541 square feet, is located at Dayton Boulevard and Morrison Spring Road. It was built in 2006.

“Starbucks helps broaden our customer base and give the community more of what it wants,”Taylor spoke during Monday’s grand inauguration of the new coffee shop.

At the same store, the Tennessee Valley Federal Credit Union opened a branch office in the Red Bank store in 2017.

The Starbucks store in the Food City is open every day from 7 a.m. until 9 p.m.

The additions to Starbucks are part of Food City’s growth plans. Food City is a privately-owned grocery chain that operates more than 130 grocery shops in Alabama, Georgia Georgia, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Virginia. Smith stated that Food City continues to grow and noted that the company’s total staff now exceeds 18,000, a significant increase from the 13,000 employees prior to the pandemic.

Smith stated that Food City is looking for new locations for its stores in downtown Chattanooga, Kimball, Tennessee, Fort Payne, Gadsden, Alabama and other cities.

Food City presented a check for $2,500 to Red Bank High School as a gesture of community support during Monday’s celebration of Starbucks’ new Starbucks.

The donation will go towards helping to cover some of the losses caused by the theft of more than $20,000 in equipment from a school and Red Bank Booster Club storage area. Red Bank police are still investigating this theft. It occurred when someone cut through a fence around a storage unit and stole an industrial mower and a paint machine that was used to line the fields. Also, two generators and a backpack blower were stolen.

“Red Bank is a community where people look out for one another, and this gift is a tremendous example of that,”Red Bank football coach Ted Gateway spoke Monday via telephone interview. “All of this impacts our kids, so we appreciate Food City making this effort to help our school and our students who went out and raised the money to help pay for better sports facilities in our community.”
