Entrepreneur Berggren's real business was 'the everday person' - Milwaukee Journal Sentinel

Monday, August 01, 2016

He was an independent operator for Roundy's and opened multiple Pick 'n Save grocery stores throughout the city, including the first one in South Milwaukee.He turned a vacated Adelman Cleaners into a flagship Pick 'n Save store for Roundy's. In 1985, his east side Pick 'n Save store at 709 E. Capitol Drive, now a Piggly Wiggly, was featured in Progressive Grocer magazine as store of the month."He was always looking for the deal," Floyd's sister Dorothea Berggren said. "He wasn't into fancy restaurants, but was all about the people. He wanted to transform grocery shopping into a quality experience for the everyday person."Scott remembers how, at the end of each week, his father would take the produce from the grocery stores that had started to turn brown and donate it to rescue missions. "He was a special person and loved by so many," his son said.Dorothea said her brother was always attracted to the "blue collar work ethic" style of Milwaukee. While he loved the city, Berggren was born on a farm, which prompted him to buy several farms in Wisconsin and in Montana. She said he had a fascination with learning different cultures and meeting different people."He was such a unique guy," she said. "By the end of a conversation with him, he would know all about you."Floyd Berggren is survived by his sister, Dorothea Berggren; his son, Scott Berggren; his daughter, Lisa Wey; and three grandchildren.Floyd BerggrenVisitation is 5 to 7 p.m. Monday at Feerick Funeral Home, 2025 E.
