“Few Milwaukee companies can lay claim to a heritage like Roundy’s,” Marx said. “Judson Roundy founded the company in 1872 when Ulysses S. Grant was the President of the United States. Today we are a leading grocer in the Midwest and one of the largest employers in the state of Wisconsin. We are elated to kick off a celebration of this milestone anniversary in the great city of Milwaukee today.”

To honor the 150th celebration, local artists will create murals to be hung at five Pick ‘n Save and Metro Market locations in Wisconsin. Artist Greg Gossel began work on the Van Buren Metro Market mural during Wednesday’s press conference.
