Superlo Foods

Stepherson, Inc. is a family owned and operated grocery business founded by the Stepherson brothers (Jack, Wesley, and Kenneth) in 1944. Serving the Memphis community continuously since our founding, our goal is to deliver the highest levels of quality, service, and selection at the lowest prices possible. From a single location, through success and failure, we have grown to our current operation of six Superlo Foods and one Stepherson's.

Our first location in East Memphis in the White Station area opened in 1948. Since then we have been located at Poplar-Perkins and Poplar-Colonial. We built our current location at 4744 Spottswood near Colonial in 1981. In late 2006 we completed a 2.5 million dollar expansion to upgrade this location and prepare us for the next 25 years.

We have served the Macon Road and Graham Street area since 1950 when our first location was built. Our current Stepherson’s location at 3942 Macon Road was built in 1960.

The expansion of our Superlo Foods concept began in 2000 when we purchased the former Mega Market location on Covington Pike and reopened as Superlo Foods #2. In 2013, we updated all meat, produce, and dairy coolers as well as all freezers. In addition to our full selection of national and private label brands, we have been able to increase our Latino brand offerings in the grocery, produce, meat, deli, frozen, and dairy departments.

We expanded to North Memphis in 2002 when we purchased a former Piggly Wiggly location at 3327 North Watkins. We reopened this location as Superlo Foods #3. Since then, we have completely remodeled and redecorated this location.

Our next expansion was to the Hickory Hill community. In August of 2009, we re-opened a former Kroger location at Kirby and Winchester. The store was completely re-done with all new equipment and decor.

In October of 2010, Stepherson, Inc. became an Employee Owned Corporation with the formation of our Employee Stock Ownership Program. All of our employees now have the opportunity to become part owners of the business.

In order to better serve our growing number of locations, we moved into a warehouse and central office facility on American Way in the summer of 2011. This has allowed us to improve purchasing to continue to provide our customers with the lowest prices we possibly can.

We expanded to Mississippi in February, 2012 when we opened a former Schnuck's location on Goodman Road in Southaven, MS as Superlo Foods #5. We have been warmly welcomed in the Southaven community and look forward to serving it for many years to come.

In October of 2014, we continued our growth in Memphis with Superlo Foods #6 by purchasing a long time neighbor, Cooper's on Quince Road. The Cooper family joined the Superlo Foods family as we expanded our service in the East Memphis area.

Stepherson, Inc. is focused on continuing our efforts to serve the Memphis and Mid-South through great selection, quality products, and prices you can raise a family on. We continue to re-invest in our community to enhance the lives of all of our customers and associates.
