WinCo Foods isn’t just big on self-service — it’s giant. Inside the cavernous stores (average size is 95,000 sq. ft.) of this 24-hour, discount supermarket chain, customers shop for food in bulk, pay in cash, and bag their own groceries.
The company’s 95-plus stores in eight western states also feature pizza shops, bakeries, health and beauty products, and organic foods. WinCo Foods, formerly known as Waremart Foods, was renamed as a shortened version of “winning company.”
The name is also an acronym for its early states of operation, which include Washington, Idaho, Nevada, California, and Oregon. Founded in 1967, employees, past and present, own the company.
