H-E-B is a large supermarket chain in Texas and northern Mexico. H-E-B food trucks can be seen on the major highways (such as I-35), with the slogan “Follow me to freshness” on the back.
“Follow me to freshness” has been on H-E-B’s trucks since at least 2008. It’s not known how many (if any) drivers saw the saying and suddenly decided to follow the H-E-B truck to its destination.
HEB Grocery Company, LP (aka H-E-B Grocery Stores or simply H-E-B) is a privately held San Antonio, Texas-based supermarket chain with more than 315 stores throughout Texas and northern Mexico. The company also operates Central Market, an upscale organic and fine foods retailer.
H-E-B ranked No. 11 on Forbes’ 2006 list of “America’s Largest Private Companies.” H-E-B was named Retailer of the Year in 2010 by Progressive Grocer. Supermarket News ranked H-E-B No. 13 in the 2008 “Top 75 North American Food Retailers.” Based on 2010 revenues, H-E-B is the twenty-fifth largest retailer in the United States. It donates 5 percent of pre-tax profits to charity.

Re: Kudos to H.E.B.!
Has anyone ever “followed them to freshness”...what does that mean? What does it look like?
