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 86 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.
