FOX BROS. MISSION STATEMENT:
“AT FOX BROS., WE WILL PROVIDE SUPERIOR SERVICE, THE HIGHEST QUALITY PRODUCTS, AND FAIR PRICES THROUGH AN ENTHUSIASTIC COMMITMENT TO OUR GUESTS, OUR TEAM MEMBERS AND OUR COMMUNITY.”
Fox Bros. Piggly Wiggly, an independently owned and operated franchised conventional Grocery Store, was established by Pat and Bob Fox in Hartland, Wisconsin on June 16, 1988. Fox Bros. is a franchisee of Piggly Wiggly Midwest (PWM), the corporate entity of Piggly Wiggly stores in Wisconsin and northern Illinois. PWM is located in Sheboygan, Wisconsin and is the major supplier to over 100 Piggly Wiggly stores.
Pat and Bob have been involved in the retail food industry most of their working lives and have brought a multitude of knowledge, experience, energy, commitment and innovative vision to their operation, associates, and the grocery industry. By surrounding themselves with associates or team members dedicated to their vision, striving for constant improvement, superior customer service and community involvement, this commitment has resulted in the success and respect Fox Bros. Piggly Wiggly has earned within the industry and local communities.
In 1992 and 1993 Fox Bros. completed two expansions at the Hartland location. In 1997, the Oconomowoc location was purchased and its doors opened as Fox Bros. Piggly Wiggly on June 16, 1997. In 2004 the Oconomowoc store was relocated to a brand new state of the art location across the street increasing in size to 50,000 square feet. At that time the two stores employed over 300 employees, which included regular full-time, part-time, and seasonal employees.
In 2006, Fox Bros. Piggly Wiggly earned the distinguished Wisconsin “Grocer of the Year” award from the Wisconsin Grocers Association. This association has approximately 1000 members comprised of major grocery operators including large chains as well as independents. In 2006, Fox Bros. was one of five (5) grocers nominated statewide for this honor.
Bob Fox retired from day-to-day operations on January 8, 2006 while Pat Fox remained as President and Co-Owner. Pat later acquired full ownership of Fox Bros. in 2010.
In 2007 Fox Bros. Piggly Wiggly developed its own homemade bratwurst, summer sausage, and beef stick products which are made fresh daily at the Oconomowoc location. Currently Fox Bros. is producing approximately 8000 lbs. of brats per week during the summer months. This equates to approximately 35,000 individual brats per week.
In October 2011 Fox Bros. bought four (4) Piggly Wiggly Corporate stores, increasing the Fox Bros. group to a total of six (6) Wisconsin store locations. These stores are located in Richfield/Hubertus, Jackson, Saukville, and Slinger, Wisconsin. With this business expansion, and the addition of another 325 employees, Pat’s wife, Lori, became an active partner in the business.
Finally, on December 10, 2014, Fox Bros. Piggly Wiggly opened its seventh (7) store in Hartford, Wisconsin expanding the number of employees to over 700 team members.
Fox Bros. is very proud and appreciative of all its Team Members whose dedication and hard work continue to make its customers the #1 priority and truly live the Fox Bros. Mission Statement.
