Rimbey Foods has new owners

Michael and Serena Kim purchased Rimbey Foods, moving from Calgary with their three children Ken, 19, Eddie, 16 and nine-year-old Serena.


Rimbey Foods has new owners and will soon have a new look.

Michael and Serena Kim purchased the store in May, coming from Calgary with their three children Ken, 19, Eddie, 16 and nine-year-old Serena.

The family is happy to be in Rimbey and is looking forward to becoming part of the community.

“Rimbey is not too small, not too big. It is the perfect size,” says Michael Kim. “I love the mountains being so close,” he added.

Kim is a dental technician by trade, but wanted to own his own business.

He is looking forward to upgrading and renovating the store and has plans to put in new flooring and re-organize the grocery items. The meat department at Rimbey Foods will remain in the competent hands of Jim Koenig.

His wife, Serena plans to make fresh Sushi every day using a variety of ingredients including seaweed, rice, cucumber and crabmeat.

The Kims have already installed new machines at the checkouts so items can be scanned.

Originally from South Korea, the family moved to Calgary eight years ago.

Michael Kim also spent some time managing a gas station.

The couple’s oldest son Ken is in his second year in the University of Calgary where he is studying engineering. Eddie will go into Grade 11 at Rimbey High School in the fall and Sophia will enter Grade 5 at Rimbey Elementary School.
