Stewart's Shops is an employee- and family-owned business with over 300 convenience shops in Upstate New York and Vermont. Based in Saratoga Springs, NY, the company was founded in 1945 when the Dake family purchased a dairy and ice cream shop from Donald Stewart of Ballston Spa. Today Stewart's Shops can be found in over 30 counties within a 150 mile radius of Saratoga. From Plattsburgh to Newburgh, Watertown to Rutland, the company maintains its small-town feel and motto, "We are closer to you."
Although our roots are in the dairy business, we've grown into much more than an ice cream shop. Through vertical integration we now make and/or distribute three quarters of the products we sell in our shops. Stewart's Shops are open seven days a week providing our customers with the freshest milk and homemade ice cream, piping hot coffee and food to go, and a complete line of convenience groceries and services. We employ approximately 3,800 people in our Shops, Dairy, Ice Cream Plant, Distribution Center and Offices. Stewart's realizes over $1 Billion in annual sales, over $30 million in profits, and contributed nearly $15 Million to our employee profit sharing plan last year. Our company believes in giving back to the communities where we have shops and donates a portion of our annual profits to charity; $2 million in 2007. – less – More from ZoomInfo »
