There's plenty of regional grocery market chains that have a dedicated following: Wegmans, Giant Eagle, Publix, Aldi and, of course, H-E-B. But one Eater writer is arguing that the Texas-based chain is the "cultiest cult grocer in America." It goes without saying that Texans love H-E-B, especially native Texans who longer live in the Lone Star State. While all local and regional supermarket chains seem to have fans willing to claim their chain is the best, writer Priya Krishna writes that H-E-B's following is unlike any other. The San Antonio-based chain only has locations in a single U.S. state, plus 52 stores in Mexico, which isn't the case for a lot of other popular chains. It's the 12th largest private company in the U.S. and consistently ranked one of the top places to work. But Krishna writes that H-E-B stands out as "one of the most powerful cultural forces in existence" for one reason.
