The Kennedy Family
Saving you more since 1934.
Frank Aloysius Kennedy started out his retail career as a window dresser for Jacobson’s and later he managed Kinney Shoe Stores. He opened the first Polly’s Food Service in 1934. The store was located on the corner of First and Franklin in Jackson, MI. His son F.A. Kennedy later renamed it Frank’s Finer Foods and it remained under the operation of members of the Kennedy family up until 2005.
Frank Aloysius considered himself quite the marketer. His first store featured a live parrot that greeted the customers. I bet you can guess the name of that parrot. Unfortunately the Health Department outlawed live birds in food stores. But Polly has lived on as the company’s namesake and mascot.
