How to Get Product into Stater Bros
Headquartered in San Bernardino, CA, Stater Bros. Markets is proudly celebrating over 81 years of serving Southern California families. Today, Stater Bros. operates 171 supermarkets in seven counties throughout the area, and has approximately 18,000 employees with annual sales of over $4 billion.
Stater Bros. is rooted in the American tradition and proudly celebrates a rich legacy of service to this great nation. Tracing its beginnings back to a small grocery store in Yucaipa, CA, twin brothers and World War II veterans Cleo and Leo Stater purchased the original Stater Bros. Market from W.A. Davis with a $600 down payment. In the midst of the Great Depression, Stater Bros. officially opened for business on August 17, 1936.
Over the years Stater Bros. has become an iconic Southern California mainstay and trusted household name by consistently providing generations of customers with exceptional quality, everyday low prices, friendly service, fresh product offerings and full-service Meat Departments.
The Company has been named amongst the Top 20 companies in the United States to offer exceptional job security for its employees according to a recent report published on Forbes.com. The Company has also been rated as the “best place to shop for groceries” among Full Service Supermarket Chains in Southern California according to a Leading National Consumer Magazine.
Stores are mainly in communities east of the San Gabriel River in Los Angeles and Orange counties. A few are also located in northern inland areas of San Diego County and parts of northern Los Angeles County, such as Palmdale. Also there are two stores in Kern County in the cities of Ridgecrest and Mojave. However, throughout its Inland Empire base, they are concentrated heavily in San Bernardino and Riverside counties. Major competitor supermarket chains in Stater’s territory are Albertsons-Vons, Aldi, and Ralphs-Food 4 Less (divisions of Kroger).
