"Seward Co-op Grocery and Deli is owned by over 8,000 area residents. The co-op has experienced five expansions during its 37 years in the Seward neighborhood. The City of Minneapolis has been part of our ability to grow and prosper. The City was instrumental in making our move to 2823 E. Franklin possible, doubling our store size, creating 50 new jobs, and redeveloping a blighted property in Minneapolis."—Sean Doyle, General Manager, Seward Co-op
