Kraus Foods was founded in 1949 by Leonard (Spike) and Dorothy Kraus. Their son, Kenneth, and his wife, Suzanne, purchased the store from them and expanded to twice it’s original size. We purchased an existing store in Andale in 1985 giving us our second location. Kenneth’s son Jeff is now also an owner making us a third generation business. Three of Jeff’s children are also currently employed here.
We have a number of special services to meet your needs! Our signature department in our stores is the meat department. Jason Cotter has been with us for over 10 years and is our meat department manager. All our meat is cut fresh daily and we make the best homemade german sausage in the world! We make 8 different varieties of sausage, each one unique and each one delicious.
We also have a hot deli in each store where we serve hand-breaded chicken daily and a variety of smoked meats on Fridays. We offer services including an ATM machine, carpet cleaner rental, money orders, a lottery terminal, and video rental.
We take pride in our customer service where our employees (many who have been with us for 10+ years) greet our customers by name. We also proudly help sponsor many local events from ice cream socials and chili suppers at the school, to ball club turkey shoots.
We have recently introduced a Rewards Card program that we are very excited about. Customers earn points for each purchase and they redeem those points for a variety of free items. In June alone, our most frequent customers each redeemed points for free merchandise valued from $10 – $22. Who says you can’t get anything for free?!
