Zup’s is a family-owned business originally established in Ely in 1916 by John Zupancich. “Grandpa John” operated the business with his seven sons, and it quickly became popular for its wide variety of products and Old-World sausages.
Today, Zup’s, an Iron Range tradition, has grocery stores in Ely, Babbitt, Tower, Silver Bay and Cook, and close to 200 employees. All are owned by Zupancich Brothers, Inc. and operated by the founder’s grandsons and great grandsons.
Zup’s was founded on family tradition and the spirit still lives within the organization. The friendly greetings, the welcoming smiles, and always an extended hand of help.
Our stores were created out of our family's love and passion for delicious foods and inspired by families looking for a place where they'd love to shop and be proud to call their own.
The environment is relaxed and well organized. It's the kind of place you'll feel comfortable running into for a quick gift or a forgotten item. Most importantly, it's a place where you can shop at your own pace, mingle freely with staff and friends, and discover something new each time you visit.
Whether it's your first time shopping with us or you've been a loyal customer for years, we promise to always do our best to make you feel like family.
The Zup’s family would like to invite you to join us, shop a bit, try a few new items. We are sure you will be delighted with what you find and taste.
