How to Start a Grocery Store Business: Our Steps to Ownership
We’ll get to know one another and decide if you’d be a good fit for Save A Lot. You’ll have the chance to review our licensing agreement closely, and we’ll review your financials and background to ensure you’re well qualified.
Finding the Right Location:
Our real estate team will work with you to find a location in your area that meets all of our criteria: visibility, size, price, and so forth. We’ll also support you as you build out your location, ensuring that the layout is perfect for a new Save A Lot.
Each Save A Lot store is unique, stocking its own SKUs to focus on localization. We’ll take the particulars of your location into account to develop a plan for sourcing and other operations.
You’ll participate in a Discovery Day where you’ll have the opportunity to meet our leadership team and get to know our company culture. It’s a great time to ask any remaining questions you might have before officially becoming a licensee.
We can get to work on transforming your location into a Save A Lot store. We’ll be there to provide guidance throughout this stage so you can get your doors open faster.
Grand Opening and Beyond:
Your Save A Lot store is open for business! We’ll help with marketing to generate a buzz around your grand opening, helping you get a head start building your customer base.
