Tom Graul – Why I Give to University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center

Tom Graul - Why I Give to University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center

When folks in the Baltimore area, Annapolis and the Eastern Shore are asked to name a supermarket that is known for outstanding quality and service, a name that always comes to mind is Graul's. What most people don't know is that the Hereford store, owned by Tom Graul, son of Graul's founders, was purchased on horseback! Graul had been courting the reluctant owner of the convenience store that became Graul's and convinced him to sell when the two were out riding together. It was their mutual love of horses that finally sealed the deal.

In addition to providing an outstanding service, Graul believes strongly in giving back to the community where he has been so blessed.

"As a business owner, it is so important that I put money back into the community. I simply feel good about it," he says. He gives to many local charities, but at University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center, he found the same outstanding quality and service for which Graul's is known when he underwent a cardiac catheterization in 2010. "It is a fine institution, and the people are extremely nice. My experience was great from beginning to end," he concludes.

Making a passionate commitment to ensure that customers have an exceptional experience - Tom Graul and University of Maryland St. Joseph Medical Center have quite a bit in common.
