Protecting Our Family



Nick Niemann grew up on a farm helping his family build, innovate, grow and manage their various business interests in restaurants, supermarkets, real estate, ranching, farming, construction and retail merchandising.


Nick first learned the ins and outs of business at the heels of his grandfather and father.  His grandfather opened his first corner grocery store in 1917.


Upon his death in 1969, he had already laid in an Estate and Succession    Plan    to    transfer    his



growing supermarket chain and family farm to Nick's father and uncle.  They continued to operate and grow the business into a successful regional supermarket chain, operating across a variety of supermarket business models, including full service and discount formats (such as Cub Foods, County Market, Save-A-Lot).


In 1980 Nick married his college sweetheart, Ann Marie Forbes.  They were blessed with their first child in 1981.  They have been married for over 38 years and have 6 children and 17 grandchildren.
