Sedano’s Supermarket, more commonly called Sedano’s, was founded in 1962 by Rene Sedano in Hialeah, Florida. After a few years, Mr. Sedano decided to return to Cuba, selling his store to Armando Guerra, who decided to keep the store name.
Today, Sedano’s is the largest Hispanic owned grocery store chain in the US, with more than 30 locations in Southern Florida. The company is known for stocking Hispanic food items, such as canned chilis and a wide variety of items that appeal to Cubans, Mexicans, and South American customers. This popular supermarket chain employs more than 2,000 people and has an estimated annual revenue in 2016 of $400 million.
Sedano’s holds about 3.2% of supermarket shoppers, just behind Publix. Company headquarters remain in Hialeah, Florida.
