Bizios Fresh Market, a family-owned and operated grocery store at 3446 Vollmer Road in Olympia Fields, is committed to quality and customer service. Opened in 2008, Bizios goes a step above basic daily essentials to also provide customers with a selection of specialty, gourmet, gluten-free and organic products.
"We care about feeding the community food that we would eat. We offer a better-quality product and homemade cooking and recipes," says Manager Nick Bizios.
When the pandemic hit in March 2020, Bizios adapted quickly. "We took action right away.," says Nick Bizios. "For us, the managers are owners so we're hands-on. We weren't equipped for curbside pickup, but a customer called and asked us, so we figured it out."
Local businesses are flexible to customers' needs and can make adjustments, request products or handle requests. "We get to know customers at a personal level," says Nick Bizios. "It's a community– it's really a family."
Small businesses play a central role in building a strong community. Business owners get to know the community and the people in it and care about providing personalized service and quality products. Remember to support local businesses and help contribute to the strong Olympia Fields community.
