Why is Joe called Grocery Store Joe?

GROCERY Store Joe may need a new Bachelor nickname after becoming fan favorite in the Bachelor in Paradise finale.

Here’s everything you need to know about why this charming young man is named Grocery Store Joe…

Why is Joe called Grocery Store Joe? 

Joe Amabile, best known as Grocery Store Joe, had a dramatic entrance in the Bachelors Nation, despite only previously being there for one episode. 

He returned for the 5th season of Bachelor in Paradise and ended up getting on one knee for Serena Pitt after clearing the air with his ex, Kendall Long.

When he competed on the 14th season of Bachelorette he became fan favourite due to viewers believing he owned a grocery store – and that was immediately when he was dubbed Grocery Store Joe.

Joe also gave many hints that he presumably owned a store on his social media.

In May 2021, he posted a photo of himself picking out a watermelon on his Instagram.

He then followed this up a few months later with an Instagram story in which he guided his followers through the organic selection available in a store – including peaches and mangos. 

His Instagram also has a story highlight where it shows him visiting all different grocery stores in the Chicago area that he worked in the past, which could've also imply he had/has his own. 

Does Joe still own his own grocery store? 

While answering questions with his DWTS partner, Jenner Johnson, Joe revealed what we all might not want to hear.

Answering the question about the store, Joe replied: “I don’t own a grocery store anymore—that’s true.”

Joe didn't give any more information regarding when he stopped owning the store, but did mention how he hates tea – incase fans want to see more interviews of him.

His Instagram account does hold a few clues as to what happened.

One possibility is that he has decided to put his focus on the production of his new sweet marinara sauce, which he promotes on his Sundays with Joe Instagram.
