WinCo Foods is an employee owned company founded in 1967

WinCo Foods, LLC opened its newest discount supermarket on April 17. The 104,000 will employ about 220 people. WinCo Foods is an employee owned company and is known primarily for being the supermarket low price leader in each community where it operates.

In addition to the regular features consumers expect in a WinCo Foods store, like our wall of values, extensive bulk foods department, and quality produce, meat, seafood, deli and bakery departments; the store makes extensive use of "green" technologies which create real energy efficiencies and savings of from 5% to 25% on refrigeration, heating, cooling and lighting the store and the product cases. These innovations will reduce the store's carbon footprint and also reduce the potential for ozone depletion from refrigerants.

WinCo Foods is an employee owned company founded in 1967 in Boise, Idaho. It operates as a regional discount supermarket company and currently employees approximately 14,000 individuals and operates 79 stores and 4 distribution centers in the states of Washington, Idaho, Nevada, California, Oregon and Utah.
