Invest in the Co-op

Seward Co-op is Growing! And you can be part of it. Your investment will help make possible a new store at 38th Street and 3rd Avenue, and an administration and food production facility in the Franklin Cooperative Creamery building on the corner of Franklin and 26th avenues. With your help, these expansions will contribute to the economic well being of our city and create healthful options for our customers and the community.

Direct investment from Seward Co-op owners is crucial to the financing of these exciting expansions. Our goal is to raise $2.5 million in capital from co-op owners through owner loans and Class C stock. We hope to achieve the goal by the end of our fiscal year on June 30, 2014, but may extend the offering, if necessary, to the end of the calendar year. If you would like information on these investment opportunities, please check out frequently asked questions here, and request the offering document from Customer Service or by contacting Jill Livingston at 612-314-2012.
