Grocery Outlet is on a very aggressive expansion strategy in all six states we operate with an overall growth goal of 350 stores by 2019. We are actively pursuing various other new markets with a vision of a potentially nationwide scope in the near future.

Our growth is powered in part by Hellman & Friedman, a private equity firm that acquired Grocery Outlet in September 2014. With the powerful synergy between them and our corporate team, we provide above-and-beyond support to our owner-operator network of stores, while maintaining an unparalleled reputation in the supplier community as a company that can move inventories and deliver prompt, on time payment. We are the first call for many suppliers who know that if they have overstocked items, they can quickly turn them into cash with us.
