The history of Bien Pharmacy dates back to 1882 when pioneer homesteader N. J. Bleser opened the doors of Bleser Drug in Milbank Junction, Dakota Territory (South Dakota would become a state 7 years later in 1889). N. J. Bleser and later his son, Karl Bleser, operated Bleser Drug until 1967 when John Radeke purchased the pharmacy changing the name to Radeke Drug. In 1987 Dan Hilgenberg purchased the pharmacy from Radeke and changed the name to Dan’s Pharmacy. Finally, in 2007 Lance Bien purchased the pharmacy from Hilgenberg and changed the name to Bien Pharmacy. Although the name has changed several times over the years, Bien Pharmacy is one of the oldest independent family-owned pharmacies in South Dakota. Our commitment to excellent customer service is the main reason for our success and longevity. We look forward to continuing this tradition for many years to come.

Product is cleaned and then packaged in 25 lb. bags on up to 1,000 KG totes or true bulk loads. Orders ship by truck domestically in the U.S. and by overseas containers to Europe and Japan.

Since we opened our first taco stand, Taco John’s has been serving fast Mexican food in an original way. From handmade salsas and fresh made shells to classic Crispy Tacos and exciting new features, no one does Mexican like we do.
It all started in 1968 when a small taco stand opened in Cheyenne, WY. With its bold flavors and top-notch tacos, it was an instant hit. Two local businessmen, Harold Holmes and James Woodson, purchased the franchise rights in 1969 and named the restaurant after the man who opened the first store – John.
The rest is history. Taco John’s restaurants began popping up across the Midwest, evolving to include drive-thrus, interior seating and bold originals like Potato Olés® and Nachos Navidad®. Ever heard of Taco Tuesday®? We started that. We even trademarked it. That’s how seriously we take tacos.
Today Taco John’s operates and franchises nearly 400 quick-service restaurants in 25 states, making it one of the largest Mexican quick service restaurant brands in America. We continue to grow across the country, but some things will never change: our uncompromising standards of food quality, dedication to using real ingredients and signature bold flavors.
We are three separate companies with one purpose: to meet all of you dairy and farm supply needs. With three locations, our distributors can deliver to a large geographic are within the states of South Dakota, Minnesota, Iowa, Nebraska, Kansas and Missouri.
