From our first store in 1967 to over 270 stores
today, not much has changed.
Sure, we've become more techno-savvy and expanded our product lines, but we've kept our commitment to quality, excellence, and convenience.
When brothers Charles and Emerson Frey opened the first Turkey Hill Minit Markets store in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, their goals were to sell quality products and provide excellent, convenient service. Their commitment to these values led to success and the eventual opening of over 270 stores.
Today, Turkey Hill Minit Markets customers enjoy a wide range of products from Turkey Hill Dairy and an extensive selection of other snacks and beverages. Many of our stores offer additional services for our customers' convenience, including ATMs, lottery tickets, and gasoline.
As our customers' needs grow and change, Turkey Hill Minit Markets will grow too, but one thing will never change. Our commitment to quality, excellence, and convenience.
Why we're called Turkey Hill.
The founders of Turkey Hill Minit Markets - Charles and Emerson Frey - were raised in Lancaster County, Pennsylvania, an area with a rich farming heritage. The particular area where Turkey Hill's headquarters is located is in Manor Township, near the Susquehanna River.
The area was first inhabited by a group of Native Americans called the Susquehannocks, who named the area "Turkey Hill" because it was an abundant hunting ground, particularly for turkeys.
The Susquehannocks probably never imagined the impact of the "Turkey Hill" name. Today, Turkey Hill is a well-recognized brand throughout the region.
