Stauffers of Kissel Hill (SKH) is a growing and innovative group of supermarket and garden center locations with a large expansion of services offering high quality foods, garden, floral, and nursery products and services in Southeastern Pennsylvania. Headquartered in Lititz, PA, SKH is a great organization with humble beginnings and a rich history of serving. I am excited to profile them in my series of Organizations that “Get It”.
SKH was founded by Roy M. Stauffer, Sr., who was born and raised on the Stauffer Fruit Farm in Warwick Township, a few miles southeast of Lititz. His father raised fruits and vegetables and sold them on the farm and to local stores. This thriving business began in 1932 when Roy purchased the Kissel Hill home and a small farm of five acres. Later that year, the present Kissel Hill building at Lititz was built. This small beginning grew rapidly with the addition of several employees and the help of the family.
