14 Things You Didn't Know About Whole Foods
I am an avid fan & patron of Whole Foods. I feel such an affinity to Whole Foods because, like me, it's from Texas. Whole Foods got its start in Austin. My earliest memory of Whole Foods was when I used to shop at their 2nd location in my hometown of Houston.
Back then, Whole Foods was a small specialty shop for health food fanatics. While it did have healthy food choices, it wasn't the behemoth of a store chain that it is today. Back then, it was more of an alternative store where you could find healthy foods & natural medicinal items that you couldn't find anywhere else.
As a person who shopped at Whole Foods when there were only two Whole Foods stores in the entire world, it boggles my mind that there are now nearly 400 Whole Foods locations--in the United States, Canada & the United Kingdom. Mind blown, for sure.
