Stater Bros. has been serving Southern California for more than 80 years and is the largest privately-owned supermarket chain in the United States. They have always emphasized providing high-quality products at the best possible prices with old-fashioned friendly service throughout history.
The philosophy served as the foundation for Stater Bros. when on August 17, 1936, Cleo and Leo Stater opened their first store in Yucaipa, California. The brothers’ innovative ideas of offering excellent customer service with low prices, weekly specials, and convenient hours quickly gained a loyal following.
With yearly sales of $4 billion, Stater Bros. has developed steadily over the years to become the largest supermarket chain (privately held) in Southern California and the largest private employer in both San Bernardino and Riverside counties. The Stater Bros. Supermarket Family currently consists of over 18,000 people and manages 170 supermarkets.
