JOIN TEAM JEFF BROWN
It’s a vision of service, equity, and commitment.
For more than 35 years...
Jeff Brown has been a leader in the City of Philadelphia and across the region. He and his family have built a successful chain of 12 union-represented supermarkets that, since their founding, have employed more than 60,000 local residents, often providing their first work experience.
He has been a leading advocate for returning citizens (ex-offenders), providing them with employment opportunities and founding an organization - Uplift Solutions - that provides training and resources to assist their re-entry into their communities. He has also been one of the most active supporters of small minority businesses, providing financial support, technical expertise, and marketing opportunities in his stores.
Jeff’s focus on establishing stores in food deserts has played a critical role in providing fresh, quality food in largely underserved, economically disadvantaged communities across Philadelphia. His groundbreaking work on this issue has garnered him national recognition and he served as an advisor to First Lady Michelle Obama and the Obama Administration.
Most importantly, Jeff has dedicated his time, talent, and resources to solve some of the most critical issues in our city. While others in positions of power and authority across the City have talked about these issues for years, Jeff Brown believes talk is cheap and has acted. His leadership and vision are exactly what Philadelphia needs at this critical crossroads.
