Family is the heart of Freson Bros.

because nothing beats the comfort of home.

Freson Bros. is a family owned and operated business which began back in 1955 when Frank Lovsin (who borrowed money from the bank using his parents house as collateral) partnered with father/son team, Frank and Leo Resek. 

Placing value on family, community, and heritage has always been a driving force behind how we operate our business.  Since opening our doors, our goal has been to provide unique products, help foster healthy families and communities and bring the comfort of home into our stores.  

Our focus is pretty simple:
- We believe it's the little things that count and have an impact.
- We believe great quality food matters.
- And we believe in the value of human connections.  
 
As a company, we value hospitality (not just customer service), traditional ways of making food, and are always looking to the future on how we can better meet the needs of our customers.  
You'll find our stores clean and filled with smiling faces willing to help any way we can. Need a dinner idea, help to find a certain product or have questions? ASK US! We're here to help. We currently have 15 Freson Bros. stores across Alberta from Brooks in the south to Manning in the north. We are in the process of adding our 16th location in Fort Saskatchewan and have announced our expansion into Edmonton at Rabbit Hill Road.  

Our History

The name FRESON was derived from a combination of the names of FRank, RESek and LovsIN (FRESIN). Their bank manager, however, misspelled the name on the company documents and the partners didn’t argue, so the name FRESON instead of FRESIN stayed.
