Stewart’s Shops is:
- An employee and family-owned business
- 330 convenience shops in Upstate New York and Vermont.
- In over 30 counties
- Based in Saratoga Springs, NY
- Founded in 1945 when the Dake family purchased a dairy and ice cream shop from Donald Stewart of Ballston Spa.
Although our roots are in the dairy business, we’ve grown into much more than an ice cream shop. Stewart’s Shops are open seven days a week providing our customers with the freshest milk and homemade ice cream, piping hot coffee and food to go, and a complete line of convenience groceries and services. We employ approximately 4,500 people in our Shops, Dairy, Ice Cream Plant, Distribution Center and Offices. Stewart’s realizes over $1 Billion in annual sales, over $50 million in profits, and contributed nearly $15 Million to our employee profit sharing plan last year. Our company believes in giving back to the communities where we have shops and donates a portion of our annual profits to charity; $2.5 million in 2013.
