Natural Grocers dates back to 1955, when Philip and Margaret Isely borrowed $200 to start the health-oriented business, which is still family-run.

“You’ll find that we have many more products on our shelves today than we did in the 1950s, but we’ve always stayed true to our roots,” said Natural Grocers Co-President Kemper Isely, one of Philip and Margaret’s children. “Today, we stock our shelves with thousands of products that meet our industry-leading quality standards, at Always Affordable prices, and we consistently challenge and update our standards to reflect our five founding principles.”

Lakewood, Colo.-based Natural Grocers has more than 3,500 employees.
