Following a few speeches and ribbon cutting, attended by Antioch community leaders and members of the Chamber of Commerce, owner Harley Allen and his son General Manager Dennis DeLano officially opened their new Delta Fresh Foods on Thursday morning, May 12.
“I want to welcome Harley and Delta Fresh Foods,” said Antioch Mayor Pro Tem Lori Ogorchock on behalf of the City Council. “Thank you for hiring locally. Welcome to Antioch.”
Jack Monroe of the Antioch Chamber offered his welcome.
“On behalf of the Antioch Chamber of Commerce, we’d like to welcome Harley and Delta Fresh Foods to the community,” he said. “Having worked in the grocery business for 35 years, I can tell you the displays are awesome, the selection is wonderful.”
“You have a wonderful store and we wish you many years of success,” Monroe added.
Harley DeLano offered his thoughts.
“We’re very happy to be here in Antioch,” he said. “We are a different kind of store. We find out what the people want and get it for them at a price that is value and make a few bucks in the meantime.”
“We hired about 45 people from the area about 40 from Antioch,” DeLano added.
Residents, who were waiting with their shopping carts for the ribbon cutting ceremony to conclude, filed into the store to begin shopping.
