Jacksons Food Stores was founded in 1975 by current CEO and owner John Jackson in Meridian, Idaho. The company operates a chain of grocery and convenience stores.
From the single location in 1975, the company has grown to 214 locations in 5 states, mostly through acquisitions, such as the 13 stores and car washes from the acquisition of Danny’s Family in 2016. About half of all locations have a Shell gas station attachment and/or a car wash. Some locations offer truck parking and services, while others try to maintain a welcoming family environmet through big screen televisions, fish tanks, and ready to eat meals.
Jacksons Food Stores are family owned and operated and tend to be located in major urban areas, such as Portland, Oregon. Headquarters remain in Meridian, Idaho.
