Thomas Edison said, “The three great essentials to achieve anything worth while are: Hard work, Stick-to-itiveness, and Common sense.”
We’re pretty fond of that model of perseverance. Starting the first PA municipal purchasing cooperative — when no one had heard about what it could do — took perseverance, certainly. But, more than being first, it’s what our clients gained that made us — and the market — sit up and take notice.
And every day that we provide guidance to rescue a business from crushing price increases or get civil servants great benefits and return money back to public coffers to avoid tax hikes — those are the days that make us realize how much what we do is needed.
Please take a moment to visit our website and meet the people who make that happen, explore updates, and, if you’re in the job market, check our careers section, too.

Stauffers of Kissel Hill’s founder, Roy M. Stauffer, Sr., was born and raised on the Stauffer Fruit Farm in Warwick Township, a few miles southeast of Lititz. His father, Tilman, raised fruits and vegetables and sold them on the farm and to local stores. Some of the produce was peddled door to door.
In 1932, Roy Stauffer, Sr., opened a fruit stand along the Lititz Pike on lease ground on the south side of Kissel Hill. Following the loss of the stand through fire in 1937, Mr. & Mrs. Stauffer purchased the brick Kissel Hill home and small farm of five acres where they lived with their twelve children. Later that year, the present Kissel Hill building which now houses the corporate office, was open for business and services were expanded to include sale of plants, trees and shrubs. As the business prospered, it became necessary to find additional sources of supply so fresh produce could be continuously available. Realizing the necessity to dispense the produce in its freshest state, items from Adams County, New Jersey, New York and terminals in Baltimore, Philadelphia and New York were purchased, in addition to local produce. Roy, Sr., also attended and sold produce at various farmer’s markets throughout Eastern Pennsylvania, in addition to the retail sales at the Stauffer Fruit Market. Over 80 years later, through the support of the local community, the business prospered over the years. Today Stauffers has locations throughout
Central Pennsylvania: Our supermarkets and home & garden stores are in Lititz, Lancaster, and Rohrerstown. Additionally we have home & garden stores in East York, Dover, Hummelstown, Linglestown and Mechanicsburg.
