That’s why, for the third year in a row, the Texas chain that includes spinoff Central Market has claimed the No. 1 spot on the 2017 Temkin Trust Ratings list, a compilation of consumers’ most-trusted companies.

Automaker Mercedes-Benz also tied for first.

The Waban, Mass.-based customer experience research and consulting firm’s annual list which “examines the trust that consumers have that an organization will operate on their behalf,” shows H-E-B scoring at 82 percent – compared with 80 percent in the previous two years.

Another San Antonio-based company also scored big on the list. USAA, the banking and insurance giant, landed in slots 3, 5 and 6 for its banking, insurance and credit card platforms.
