A Stewart’s Food Store cashier checks out a customer Sept. 22, 2017, in Sweeny. The grocery store received a financial incentive from the Sweeny EDC as it looks to expand into smoking its own meats.

SWEENY — Stewart’s Food Store is looking to be a new destination for meat processing, and the Sweeny City Council voted to make that effort a little easier to bring to fruition.

The council approved a recommendation from the Sweeny Economic Development Corp. to provide an economic incentive of $70,000. Stewart’s application to the agency contained a request for $122,326.98, but the agency didn’t have that much money available.
