Since its humble beginnings, Acme Fresh Market proved to be more than just a local supermarket. It branched out to various services like deli goods and pharmacies. It even has its own catering service.
It was founded in 1891 by Frederick Wilhelm Albrecht, a native of Massillon, Ohio. He started in the grocery business with his store named Albrecht’s Grocery. He then began a chain of stores that were on a cash-only sales basis. His store chains would soon be known as Acme Cash Basket Stores.
Going through the Great Depression halted its expansion, but did not stop the chain from slowly growing. After exploring various services, and having a few more ups and downs, the remaining stores were rebranded into Acme Fresh Market.
However, after a loss of a local Acme store in 1997, it spurred local residents in west Akron to rally for a new supermarket. Henry Johnson, a longtime Acme employee, worked with Acme and his local city to open a new grocery. Hence Acme Fresh Market was born.
There are sixteen Acme Fresh Market stores, and two RSVP Food and Outlet locations. It was in the West Akron location where Fresh Market Catering was born.
