H-E-B is a major Texan grocery chain. They just about rival Whole Foods for store per square mile here in Austin (and that’s saying something).
Before an enterprising friend of ours took the initiative to look up what H-E-B actually stands for, we crowd-sourced possible answers from various visitors over the last few months.
Here are a few favorites:
Hello, Eager Buyers!
Helping Everyone Bulge
Hallelujah, Epicurean Bites!
Heralding Each Buyer
Have Everything Better
Sadly, the real answer is Howard Edward Butt.
I think we should write in with suggestions for an official name change.
Suggestions, anyone? H-E-B…. Happy n’ Eatable n’ Bright?
