You really can't go 15 feet in an Iowa urban area without hitting a Hy-Vee store. If you're an Iowa native or even a Midwesterner in general, chances are you are very well aware of what Hy-Vee is.

Hy-Vee, which is currently in Iowa (obviously), Minnesota, Illinois, Kansas, Missouri, South Dakota, Wisconsin, and Nebraska will soon have locations in Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee, and Alabama. There will be locations in large cities like Nashville and Memphis. This is according to a KCCI report.
