As the years went by, the Wynn’s expanded their businesses to include grocery and hardware stores in Naples, Bonita Springs, and Golden Gate. In 1985, Don Wynn sold several of the grocery stores to the Kroger company and shifted more of his time and attention to golf and fishing. His youngest son, Tim, then 26, took over direction of the Fifth Avenue store, and the Wynn’s became landlords to the Kroger market at the US 41 location, next to Sunshine Hardware. Eventually, the Kroger lease ended on the US 41 space, and today Tim runs that store, as well as Wynn’s Catering. Tim’s brother, Jerry, ran the hardware stores in Naples, Golden Gate, Bonita Springs, and Estero.
From the beginning, Tim realized that his success as an independent grocery store operator would depend upon offering his customers greater personal service and unique items unavailable in the large chain stores. With that in mind, he added Wynn’s Market home delivery service, expanded the store’s gourmet foods line (now one of the best in the area), and created our “from scratch” fine bakery department featuring a product line that combines international delicacies, American classics, and Wynn Family favorites from his mom, Annie Wynn’s own recipes. Wine and spirits expert Ted Janowitz was brought on board to develop one of the most distinctive wine departments in southwest Florida. Then, in 1992, as a complement to the market, Tim started Wynn’s Catering, now one of the largest and most prestigious catering firms in Collier County.
In his nearly two decades at the helm of the Wynn food operations, Tim has introduced many changes and advancements, but has preserved the core attitudes and principles that his father and grandfather started with. The most important principle being good customer service, which has always been the primary key to Wynn Family success.
