The way CEO Dave Hirz sees it, there are no other grocery stores that have Smart & Final’s business model.
“It’s completely unique in our industry,” he said. “What makes our model so successful is that Smart & Final is the only place where household customers can come in and find everything on their shopping list and do their club store shopping at the same time. Smart & Final can effectively replace a shopping trip to a conventional store, while eliminating the need for a club membership.”
