Joe Lueken: A Boss With a Big Heart

Mr. Joe Lueken has taken giving to a whole new level. The 70 year old owner of Lueken's Village Foods in Bemidji, Minnesota has been operating his business for over 45 years. He apparently has been very successful, and gives a lot of credit to his employees who he said he could not have done it without.

Like running any other business, operating a grocer demands time, know-how, and patience, and that is what Mr. Joe has been giving his business. Now, at age 70, he wants to have more time for himself, his wife, and his entire family, so he is stepping away from his business of 46 years.

Mr. Lueken could have sold his business and receive whatever amount he desire, instead, Mr. Lueken decided that the people who have helped made him successful should be the ones to inherit his business. Yes, that's right! Mr. Leuken told the StarTribune of Minneapolis earlier this month, "My employees are largely responsible for any success I've had, and they deserve to get some of the benefits of that." "You can't always take. You also have to give back."

He has drafted a plan to make every one of his employees, stockholders which will be based on a hierarchy of longest employees at the very top with more stocks. He will be compensated for his business over a five year period, but his employees are now the new owners of Lueken's Village Foods. Can you imagine being an employee of Lueken Village Foods? I can, and nothing could ever get in my way of happiness - not after this day.

For me, this is a new level of kindness, and thoughtfulness. Mr. Lueken has raised the bar of giving, or giving back as he calls it. He is considered by many charities as a very kind, considerate man, and rightfully so.

Hats off to you Mr. Lueken! May you and your family enjoy the rest of your life to its fullest, and may you always have abundance of every good thing, and insurmountable joy.
