Fareway is an American grocery store chain based in Iowa. The company was founded way back in 1938 by Paul S.Beckwith. At the time, Fareway's idea of a self-service grocery store was revolutionary, and many people thought it wouldn't catch on. But it did, and Fareway grew as a result. Today, the company operates about 124 grocery stores in six Midwestern states and has up to 12,000 employees.
The company is still owned by the Beckwith family, and it's renowned for its excellent treatment of employees. When Beckwith was opening the first Fareway store, that was what he wanted to see— a group of happy employees catering to happy customers. It's not a coincidence that the company is named Fareway— when Beckwith founded it, he wanted to build an environment that would not only be fair to employers but fair to employees and customers as well.
To further support employees and stay true to the vision of the founder, the company announced a plan in 2018 to help eligible employees pay off their student loan debt. This benefit gave the employees about a hundred dollars every month, with an upper limit of five thousand dollars. This policy added the grocery chain to the about %4 of companies that help employees pay off student loan debt.
There are very few companies that treat their workers as well as Fareway does, and it is little wonder their employees are extremely loyal.
