H-E-B has announced that they surpassed 100,000 employers on their payroll on Wednesday, making the company the largest private employer in the state of Texas.
H-E-B employs over 90,000 people across 332 locations in Texas. The company has also hired over 10,000 employees at 56 stores throughout Mexico.
Craig Boyan, president and COO said in a prepared statement that this is a huge milestone for their company.
"It takes great people to build a great company, and we look forward to providing even more Texans with meaningful career opportunities that bring experiences, growth and lifelong connections at H-E-B," Boyan says.
This isn't the first time the company has given back to the Texas community. A couple of months ago, CEO Charles Butt also surprised the state with a $100 million donation for educational purposes.
