Sedano’s Supermarkets is celebrating 60 years in business in Miami with promotional events and special pricing throughout the year. The grocer has become a part of Miami’s DNA for understanding South Florida’s unique blend of Latin cultures.
“We’re very grateful to our longtime employees and loyal customers for allowing Sedano’s to be part of their friends and families for the past 60 years,” said Javier Herrán, chief marketing officer at Sedano’s Supermarkets. “We take pride in being a cultural hub to our local community and feel proud to bring our customers quality foods at the best prices while always keeping in mind the flavors of their homelands and culture.”
Since opening its first store in Hialeah in 1962, Sedano’s has been making the grocery shopping experience affordable, attainable and nostalgic by giving immigrants a sense of community away from home. Each location has allowed Hispanics in South Florida to shop for a unique selection of groceries, part of Latin America’s authentic cuisine, at the best price points in one place.
Its employees have created a family within their workplace and enjoy helping people find all the foods they miss from their home countries.
“Bringing our customers a bit of their country of origin and traditions to their kitchen was the vision of our founders. I am proud to follow their legacy and to be part of the Sedano’s family for the last 39 years,” said Pedro Mesa, director of community affairs at Sedano’s.
Like Mesa, there are many other employees who have been working at Sedano’s for years.
The supermarket is hosting Sedano’s Kitchen at the Miami-Dade County Youth Fair through April 10, where small local food businesses will get the chance to promote and sell their products. Sedano’s will also continue celebrating its annual “Season of Giving” during the holidays.
Founded in 1962 by the Herrán and Guerra families, Sedano’s Supermarkets has grown to become one of the leading independent grocery chains in the United States. Sedano’s serves Florida’s multicultural communities, with more than 3,000 employees and 34 stores in Miami-Dade, Broward and Orange counties. As America’s largest independently owned Hispanic supermarket chain, Sedano’s is recognized for its excellent customer service, ethnic product offering and competitive prices.
