Legacy Food Storage to Begin Selling in Oklahoma

March 20, 2014

Salt Lake City Legacy Food Storage, a Utah-based manufacturer of emergency food storage and other essentials, is teaming up with a new emergency preparation store in Oklahoma City, Okla., Homestand Preparation Station, to make emergency storm shelters with food, water and other items available to residents.

Homestand is the first brick-and-mortar store to sell Legacy products, which have previously been available exclusively through online distributors.

According to the Oklahoma Climatological Survey, the state sees an average of 53 tornados a year, with some years showing as many as 100. As of May, the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has invested more than $57 million in 11,768 private and public storm shelters in Oklahoma.

"This venture with Homestand is a giant step forward in helping Oklahoma residents be prepared in an emergency – and just as big of a step for our company as we strive to get closer to where are products are most needed," said Phil Cox, founder and CEO of Legacy Food Storage.

Legacy Food Storage provides complete meals in Mylar pouches that only require water to prepare. These and other emergency supplies will be available at Homestand.

After witnessing the May 2013 tornado that devastated entire neighborhoods in central Oklahoma, a group of Oklahoma City investors established Homestand to help Oklahomans prepare their families and homes for Oklahoma's harshest weather conditions.
