WinCo Foods is a family of 20,000+ employee-owners, with 126 grocery stores and our own distribution and transportation network operating across 10 states in the American West, Pacific Northwest and Southwest.  As the Low Price Grocery Leader we believe that we make the lives of our customers and employee-owners better and we do it by focusing on the people and communities where we operate.


WinCo Foods began in 1967, in Boise, ID, under the name Waremart, operating stores under the name until 1999, when the name was changed to WinCo Foods, short for Winning Company.


In 1985, after a group of senior employees purchased a majority interest in the company, they made the momentous decision to give WinCo Foods employees a real ownership stake. The WinCo Foods Employee Stock Ownership Trust (ESOP) was born, creating what has now become the third largest Employee-Owned company in the United States.


Today, WinCo Foods is well known and beloved for its everyday low-prices and engaged employee-owners across our service areas, encompassing 126 stores throughout Washington, Idaho, Nevada, California, Oregon, Utah, Arizona, Texas, Oklahoma and Montana.


Here’s the best part: The day you start at WinCo Foods is the day you start building your ownership stake!  (available at most locations, check the locations Summary Plan Description)


Providing for your future self – While you may not think so today, the WinCo Foods ESOP is a path to financial security. Think about this: to date, we have more than 500 millionaire employee-owners, with hundreds more close behind!


The formula is simple: work hard and the better you do, the better your location does. The better your location does, the better the company does.  The better the company does, the better our ESOP does.  You get an annual gift of stock equaling 20% of what you make each year.  After six years, it’s all yours, no matter what.  (ESOP available at most locations, check the locations Summary Plan Description)


You can own a grocery store! How cool is that? Work hard, stay focused and it may just support you for the rest of your life!
