If you'll meet me in St. Louis, chances are there'll be a Schnucks in sight. The region's largest food chain, Schnuck Markets operates about 100 stores, two-thirds of which are in the St. Louis area. The other stores dot Missouri, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, and Wisconsin. All stores offer a full line of groceries and 95% of them boast pharmacies. Other services include Redbox video rentals, in-store banking, and florist shops. While most stores operate under the Schnuck banner, the company also runs about half a dozen Logli supermarkets in Illinois and Wisconsin, and a specialty pharmacy. Founded in 1939, the company is owned by the Schnuck family and run by CEO Scott Schnuck and president and COO Todd Schnuck.

Geographic Reach

The grocery chain operates across a handful of states, primarily in Missouri with additional locations in Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, and Iowa.

Financial Performance

Schnuck Markets rang up an estimated $2.7 billion in sales in fiscal 2015 (ends September).


Schnuck leverages its experience operating in-store drugstores. To this end, the company in 2012 opened its first full-service standalone pharmacy on the site of St. John's Hospital in Springfield, Illinois.

Schnuck has targeted at least two areas outside the St. Louis area for a concentration of its groceries. In Evansville, Indiana Schuck has eight stores. Up and across Illinois, the company has placed six stores in the Rockford area. It has fewer stores in a string of other cities in Illinois including Springfield, Champaign-Urbana, and Peoria.

While Schnuck Markets does most of its business in the suburbs, the grocery chain operates a new urban prototype store -- named Culinaria -- in the heart of downtown St. Louis. Measuring a modest 23,000 sq. ft., the store is about a third of the size of a traditional Schnuck supermarket. Culinaria is a full-service grocery store with specialty food items and a coffee bar and wine shop.
