On Thursday, June 4, H-E-B celebrated its 110th anniversary of serving Texans with a customer appreciation event at the Beaumont H-E-B at 3025 North Dowlen Road.

“Partners” served complimentary sodas, ice cream, barbecue, and treats, as customers enjoyed party favors and perused interactive attractions.

The first-ever H-E-B Mobile Museum showcased a digital archive of historical H-E-B mementos and a historical timeline of the Texas-based company. The interactive H-E-B Mobile App tent introduced several customers to the company’s free mobile application, designed to assist with grocery lists and the shopping experience.

Mayor Becky Ames, Jefferson County Judge Jeff Branick and Greater Beaumont Chamber of Commerce president Jim Rich joined H-E-B officials for the presentation of a special proclamation recognizing H-E-B for its 110 years of service.

H-E-B entered the Golden Triangle area of Southeast Texas in October 1990 with the opening of the Lumberton location in a small bedroom community north of Beaumont. From Beaumont to Nederland to Port Arthur, the growth within the Golden Triangle allowed H-E-B to expand its variety of offerings to dozens of Southeast Texas communities. With the recent opening of the newest Beaumont store at the corner of College and Eleventh streets, H-E-B now employs more than 1,300 Partners in the Golden Triangle area.

With over 360 stores, multiple manufacturing plants, warehouses and transportation depots, H-E-B employs over 85,000 “partners” who continue the tradition of “making the lives of Texans better.
