Why Should I Choose Save A Lot’s Grocery Store Licensing Opportunity?

As the nation’s leading independent discount grocery chain, Save A Lot features a unique grocery store licensing opportunity. Grocery stores showed strong recession resistance over other forms of retail stores during the pandemic, fueling significant growth and a sales drive that’s predicted to last for years to come.

The grocery store industry is a growing, booming industry. In particular, the discount grocery store model has seen exponential growth and is positioned for some of the highest growth rates in retail. With only a three percent market share, there’s plenty of room for newcomers to flourish.

When you become a Retail Partner with Save A Lot, you’ll see how our time-tested model is proven to help you build a thriving business while being efficient and effective. Unlike other grocery store franchises, we utilize a licensing model that stands out from the competition by specializing in value and convenience, so you can get your store operating quickly and see a strong return on your investment.

We’ve designed and streamlined our business model to provide our Retail Partners with everything they need to build their businesses from the ground up. Save A Lot licensing partners save time and money while enjoying many benefits.

Some of the many advantages of our business model include:

  • Low-cost service model. We’ve streamlined our operations to be ultraefficient with minimally staffed shop floors, a smaller retail footprint, and simple shelf displays.
  • Award-winning private label brands. Our high-quality, low-priced private brands offer customers greater value and provide better margins for our Retail Partners.
  • Limited assortment. Our reduced number of SKUs simplifies operations and provides a more efficient shopping experience.
  • Everyday low pricing (EDLP) strategy. Thanks to our buying power, we offer savings over other supermarkets on private-label and national-brand products, USDA-inspected meat, farm-fresh produce, and non-food items.
  • Neighborhood focus. As a neighborhood value grocer, Retail Partners can become an integral part of their community through products that are tailored to their diverse local populations, nationally supported programs, promotions, and partnerships.
  • World-class distribution. We operate our own dedicated distribution centers that keep our stores stocked, allowing for greater operational efficiency, higher velocity, and increased buying power.
  • Brand reinvestment and growth. We recently refreshed our branding, prototype models, and remodel assistance programs to help Retail Partners jumpstart their business.
  • Retail Partner-focused business model. Our business strategy prioritizes the success of our Retail Partners, so we provide numerous support services to help them see strong returns.
