Phase three is the frozen food section becoming two times its current size. With the expansion all new efficient equipment will be installed including new ovens to make new breads in the bakery section.

HyVee was founded in Iowa in the 1930's. The company is 85 years old and currently has 233 stores and 65 thousand employees. It is the largest employer in Iowa.
