King Soopers, the supermarket brand of Kroger was founded by Lloyd J. King and Charles W. Houchens in the Rocky Mountains of Arvada, Colorado in 1947. Within a span of a decade, Soopers began its market expansion by establishing itself as a functionalised brand with nine stores.
It is one of Colorado√¢‚Ç¨‚Ñ¢s largest, full-service retail grocery chain that employs over 23000 people in 150 stores spread across Colorado, Utah, New Mexico, Wyoming, etc.
Headquartered in Denver, Colorado, King Soopers was successfully acquired by Dillons in 1957, but then in 1983, Dillons merged their acquisition with Kroger and thus King Soopers and City Markets became a subsidiary to the widely renowned Kohler.
The Kroger-run supermarket targets to help in the creation of modern communities with minimal or zero wastage with an aim to eradicate hunger.
King Soopers provides its vast consumer base a wide variety of assorted bakery products, take-out delicatessen, ice cold frozen food items, day-to-day groceries, freshly cut meat, wide range of pharmacy goods, fresh farm produce, a wide range of seafood, snacks and liquor.
