Established in 2010, FreshCo operates roughly 75 stores located exclusively in Ontario. With a focus on extensive selections of fresh and ethnic products, the discount supermarket chain appears well-positioned for continued expansion as the demographic composition of Canada becomes increasingly more diverse. The resources and support of parent corporation Sobeys, which generates roughly $16 billion in annual revenue, also promises a bright future. As FreshCo continues to make inroads on the Canadian supermarket scene, the company will regularly need to hire for jobs in grocery retail management.
