Freson Brothers


Our founders, Frank Lovsin and Leo Resek, opened Freson Bros. as a small butcher shop in Hinton, Alberta in 1955. Just one year later, the shop already needed to grow to keep up. The owners soon realized that their commitment to home-grown quality could be expanded well beyond meat. Shelves were soon stocked with Alberta produce and fresh baking. Since that first store opened, Freson Bros. has grown to be a trusted member of Alberta’s communities


We have grown a great deal since we opened that first butcher shop in Hinton, but we haven’t forgotten the features that made us a community staple: connecting with family and the comfort of home, supporting our communities, and celebrating our heritage. We’ve stayed true to our values, including fresh, local food, warm hospitality, and traditional approaches – and that will never change. You can find us in 16 communities across Alberta

Family comes first, and for Freson Bros., providing for your family means offering the freshest food, convenient options, and healthy choices. Plus, you’ll always find great savings made just for you with our personalized loyalty program.
