Phoenix, Arizona-based Sprouts Farmers Market is planning a series of new stores, including four with a new, smaller format in line with previously announced strategy and one store relocation. The healthy grocer will open approximately 20 stores this year.

“This year, Sprouts will densify its footprint with more stores opening in California, Florida and Texas,” said Dave McGlinchey, Sprouts Farmers Market chief format officer. “We’re excited to introduce our newest format in four stores in the second half of 2021 and plan to feature this format with even more stores next year, when we will be expanding at unit growth of 10 percent or more.”

Among the openings are 10 stores in Florida where the grocer has been growing rapidly since 2018 and currently operates 23 locations. Stores in Dania Beach, Florida; Grand Prairie, Texas; Phoenix, Arizona; and Smyrna, Georgia, will introduce Sprouts’ updated, smaller format which averages 25,000 square feet, and one store in Tustin, California, will be remodeled this year with the new layout.

“Our refreshed format highlights the unique experience Sprouts is known for while emphasizing product innovation, attributes and departments meaningful to our target customers like high-quality meat and seafood, frozen items and plant-based products,” said McGlinchey. “The smaller size is very efficient and keeps produce at the heart of the store while maintaining our familiar open layout that will offer more assortment of products for a treasure hunt shopping experience.”

Sprouts also will open two new local produce distribution centers this year, one in Aurora, Colorado, in March and another in Orlando, Florida, later in the year. The new centers will drive supply chain efficiencies by positioning stores within 250 miles of the centers.

Sprouts currently operates 362 stores in 23 states. Future stores are planned for:

  • Florida: Boynton Beach, Brandon, Dania Beach, Homestead, Miami, Oakland Park, Orlando, Port St. Lucie, Tampa and West Palm Beach;
  • Georgia: Buford and Smyrna;
  • Colorado: Denver;
  • California: Garden Grove and Menifee;
  • Texas: Grand Prairie and Las Colinas;
  • Arizona: Maricopa and Phoenix (relocation); and
  • Nevada: Reno.

Each new store will bring approximately 110 new career opportunities to the market. Grand opening dates and hiring information for each location will be shared at a later date. For a list of current stores, visit sprouts.com/stores.

Sprouts employs approximately 35,000 team members and operates more than 360 stores in 23 states nationwide.
