Superior History

Over Six Decades in the Making

Four generations ago, a dream turned into a reality. Superior Fisheries on Cherry St. in Grand Rapids was born. Business was good with a variety of offerings, including fresh fish, seafood, and freshly fried fish & chip baskets, but the space quickly became too small for operations. In 1976 a few lots of property in the country were purchased where our soon-to-be new plant: Superior Seafoods Company, would be born.

As time passed, growth and change continued. In the early 2000s, Superior Seafoods officially became Superior Foods. This name change signified an expansion that has helped define who we are. Since then we have seen Superior expand with the addition of its three brands (Superior Select, River City Meats, and in 2022 – Black Pearl Seafoods). Along with this, we have grown our geographical reach, especially with our retail business. Fast forward to the current day and we are anticipating the addition of our new deli production facility that will be opening down the street from us on Broadmoor avenue in the spring of 2022!

Through all of the change and growth, though, our mission principles remain the same: to provide quality products, resulting in an experience that is nothing less than Superior.
