Stewart’s opens new Frankfort shop as company continues Mohawk Valley expansion

Stewart’s celebrated the opening of its new, larger shop in Frankfort during a grand opening on Jan. 26th.

Among the local dignitaries attending the event were Assemblyman Robert Smullen, representatives of state Sen. Mark Walczyk’s office, village trustee Peggy Maneen and Sarah Harrer from the Herkimer County Chamber of Commerce.

In conjunction with the event, Stewart’s made a donation to the Frankfort-Schuyler Elementary School for their Character Education Program.

Stewart’s opened the doors at its new, larger shop on Main Street in Frankfort at the end of November, 2023, adding pizza and an expanded food-to-go lineup, including empanadas and crispy chicken sandwiches. The 4,000-square-foot shop also includes a beer cave and an expanded fuel island.

Located at the corner of East Main and South Frankfort streets, just south of the New York state Thruway, the new shop represents Stewart’s latest investment in the Mohawk Valley.

“We are excited to open another new shop and show our continued commitment to invest and grow throughout Herkimer County and the Mohawk Valley,” said Stewart’s chief operating officer Chad Kiesow. “Offering easy food and expanded grocery options are a major focus as more small grocers leave the market.”

Stewart’s has been part of the Frankfort community for years and spotted the opportunity to play a bigger role after the longtime owners of Melrose Supermarket retired and their property became available for purchase.

The Frankfort shop is part of Stewart’s $50 million capital investment plan for 2023.
