Founded by Allen Milam and his father, Thomas, the first store was opened in 1984, on Bird Road in Miami, and was operated under the Piggly Wiggly franchise name.
In 1989, the store was rebranded to the family name, “Milam’s Market,” and in the coming years several of Allen’s siblings joined the company, bringing on additional retail and business experience. With the growing family involvement, additional stores were opened in Miami Springs in 1997, Coconut Grove in 1999, and Sunny Isles in 2000 — bringing the total number of stores to four. Allen, former CEO of the company, retired in 2015.
Milam’s Markets prides itself on offering quality, variety, and service, second to none. The Milam family has always believed that a supermarket plays a vital role in the community and in the lives of those who inhabit it. As a result, Milam’s Markets strives to constantly improve its shopping experience and product offerings in order to make a positive difference in their lives.
Milam’s Markets is now a third-generation family business, employing over a dozen family members. With the help of its supportive communities, caring associates, strong management team, and continued family involvement, Milam’s Market looks to continue growing in Miami-Dade County and improving itself for decades to come.
Milam’s Markets is a member of the Independent Grocers Alliance (IGA). IGA was founded in 1926 and brings together independent grocers across the United States to ensure that family-owned local grocery stores remain strong in the face of growing competition from big box cookie-cutter chain stores. IGA retailers undergo a series of rigorous assessments to ensure that customers are encountering exceptional shopping experiences each and every time they enter an IGA retailer. The very best IGA retailers are awarded the coveted Five Star Retailer status based upon a series of in-store appraisals and customer feedback. All of the Milam’s Markets locations have been recognized by IGA as a “Five Star Retailer.”
