Smart & Final Company Overview
Headquartered in Los Angeles, where the Company began in 1871, Smart & Final Stores, Inc. operates more than 300 grocery and foodservice stores under the “Smart & Final,” “Smart & Final Extra!” and “Smart Foodservice” banners in California, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Nevada, Idaho and Utah, with an additional 15 stores in Northern Mexico operated through a joint venture.
For years, Smart & Final banner stores were known as the “smaller, faster warehouse store,” primarily focused on providing customers with club-size items. Throughout its evolution, it has remained committed to adapting to the changing needs of the neighborhoods it serves, most notably through its 2008 introduction of Smart & Final Extra! stores. Uniquely positioned to offer time- and money-savings for both household and business customers, Smart & Final Extra! stores include expanded fresh and frozen products, organic and natural products, bulk foods, oven-roasted chicken and many other items sold in convenient sizes. In addition, all Smart & Final stores continue to offer 50% more club-size items than a traditional club store, with no membership fee required.
While Smart & Final stores target both households and businesses, Smart Foodservice stores are primarily focused on serving foodservice professionals; operators of small restaurants, catering companies, businesses, and nonprofits. It also provides household customers with a high quality and value option for stocking-up their kitchens and preparing for holidays, parties and events.
