Brookshire's and East Texas go hand in hand. They grocery company has been a stable employer for 90 plus years in East Texas. Many of us got our first job working there in high school. Some decided to stick around for many years after that.

Now, the national business publication, Forbe's, has recognized Brookshire's Grocery Company on their inaugural America’s Best Employers By State list according to the Tyler Morning Telegraph. In their survey, Forbe's surveyed employees from various businesses in every state. The survey asked those employees how willing they were to recommend their employer to family and friends.

Brookshire's landed on a list of Texas based companies that includes H-E-B, Valero Energy and Texas instruments. Brookshire Grocery Company chairman and CEO, Brad Brookshire, told the Tyler Morning Telegraph:

We are honored to be recognized as one of America’s top employers in Texas. Our company is very proud to employ many talented individuals who are passionate about serving others and committed to living out our core values. We want to thank all of our incredible employee-partners for everything they do to deliver exceptional experiences and value to our customers.

Pretty cool to have East Texas recognized on this list.
