How ShopRite's Jeff Brown became a progressive - and a soda tax opponent

When Brown was a kid working in his father’s store, his father didn’t pay him initially. This was the family way. New Central Market, then at 40th and Girard, had been founded by his grandfather. If the young Jeffrey Brown wanted to hang with his dad, he’d have to head to the store.

    How ShopRite's Jeff Brown became a progressive - and a soda tax opponent
    A lot of fellow progressives in town are giving Jeff Brown the side-eye. He doesn't actually seem to care. Brown owns more than a dozen ShopRite and Fresh Grocer supermarkets around Philadelphia, where he has attracted national attention by hiring former prisoners and bringing healthy food to underserved neighborhoods.
