The Story

Stater Bros. Markets 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.

Headquartered in San Bernardino, CA, Stater Bros. Markets is proudly celebrating 85 years of serving Southern California families. Today, Stater Bros. operates 170 supermarkets in seven counties throughout the area, and has approximately 18,000 employees with annual sales of over $4 billion.

In 1981, Stater Bros. late Executive Chairman Jack H. Brown, a proud Navy veteran born on Flag Day, took the helm of Stater Bros.  Under Brown’s leadership the Company grew to become the largest privately owned Supermarket Chain in Southern California and the largest private employer in both Riverside and San Bernardino counties.  Brown passed away in 2016. 

Prior to his passing, Brown appointed seasoned supermarket industry executive Pete Van Helden to the position of President and CEO.  Van Helden, who now holds the position of CEO, reports to Stater Bros. Chairman Phillip J. Smith who also celebrates his birthday on Flag Day.

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. 

Additionally, the Company remains steadfast in its commitment to “not just doing business in the community, but being part of the community.”  Since 2008, Stater Bros. has contributed more than $80 million in food and funds to countless local organizations that support hunger relief, children’s well-being, education, health, and help for our Nation’s Veterans and active service members.
