Company enters seventh state with new market to be located at 13430 W. 151st Street
NEWS RELEASE (July 15, 2021) – Fareway Stores, Inc. hosted a groundbreaking ceremony today for a new store to be located at the northeast corner of 151st and Pflumm in Olathe. The location will provide for an approximately 7,400 square foot, full-service meat market.
“We are highly anticipating our sixth Fareway Meat Market, which will serve Olathe area residents, and allow for expansion into Kansas,” said Fareway President and CEO Reynolds W. Cramer. “We are committed to providing only the best in fresh, high quality meat with full-service counters across our seven-state region. We would like to thank the city for making this possible and look forward to providing great service and becoming a part of the Olathe community.”
The meat market concept originates from Fareway’s more than 80-year commitment to providing the best in fresh, high quality meat. This location will expand Fareway’s presence in the area following its opening of the Fareway Meat Market and McGonigle’s KC BBQ at 79th and Ward Parkway in Kansas City, MO, in 2020. The Olathe location, once opened, will be Fareway’s 131st store.
“We are very excited to have a unique and quality grocer like Fareway come to south Olathe. We believe that the Meat Market will become a destination for people not only in Olathe, but south Johnson County,” said Olathe Chamber CEO Tim McKee.
In addition to offering a unique experience with an unmatched, full-service meat department, this location will provide for expanded seafood and sushi, artisan cheeses, and prepared foods, similar to the Fareway Meat Market located at 79th and Ward Parkway.
“We’re excited for our residents to be able to enjoy such high-quality products at a first-class establishment, right in their own backyard. Thank you to Fareway for choosing to invest in our community, and welcome to Olathe,” said Mayor John Bacon.
Construction will begin in the coming weeks, with expected store completion in spring 2022.
