Stater Bros. Markets has deep roots in American heritage and takes immense pride in its extensive history of serving the nation. Tracing its origins to a modest grocery store in Yucaipa, CA, the inception of Stater Bros. Market can be credited to the visionary twin brothers and World War II veterans, Cleo and Leo Stater. With a mere $600 down payment, they seized the opportunity to acquire the original Stater Bros. Market from W.A. Davis. Despite the challenging circumstances of the Great Depression, Stater Bros. triumphantly commenced operations on August 17, 1936.
With its headquarters based in San Bernardino, CA, Stater Bros. Markets rejoices in the remarkable milestone of 85 years dedicated to serving families across Southern California. At present, Stater Bros. proudly operates an extensive network of 170 supermarkets spanning seven counties in the region.
