Introducing Keith Barker, operator of the Grocery Outlet located in Santa Rosa, California. Keith has been involved with Grocery Outlet since 1994. Before becoming an operator, Keith delivered Eagle Chips to several different Grocery Outlet stores. He worked as a Grocery Outlet manager for five years before he decided he wanted a store of his own. He first operated the store in Newark, California and then took the Santa Rosa store where he has been since 2001.
Keith enjoys the freedom of operating his store in his own way, while also, giving to his community. He currently donates to the senior center next to his store, local wine dinners, many youth sporting teams, and Saint Vincent de Paul, which includes working both their Thanksgiving and Christmas events. Keith also loves working with the citizens of his neighborhood. The ladies from the senior center come in every week and bring their friends who haven’t visited the store yet and Keith always says hello and introduces himself to all the new faces!
Along with his son and two daughters, Keith would like to thank all of his shoppers for allowing him to do what he loves. To everyone that has not been to Keith’s store, go check it out and buy the product fast, because with the prices he offers, it sure won’t last!
