About Richard’s

Richard’s Foodporium® first opened its doors in 1979 as an independently-owned natural foods store in southwest Florida and, after 40 years, our customers still love us. Our overriding mission is to offer natural and specialty products at affordable prices, and to provide exceptional customer care. There are now multiple stores in operation with an expanded selection of products, including a number of private label items. The Richard’s Foodporium® brand is backed by a wealth of experience and dedication. We are always striving to better meet our customers’ needs and enhance their shopping experience.
