Spouts Farmers Market, Grocery Retailers, Thriving in COVID

While the year of COVID19 has destroyed many businesses in the United States, it has been a boom year for the retail grocery industry.

Temporary disruptions to distribution chains lead to fewer or late deliveries. Combine this with panic hoarding leading to friction in the earlier months of the pandemic. Overall year-over-year earnings have increased. In fact, Sprouts Farmers Market boasted a year-over-year profit in 2020 and continued its pre-pandemic plan to open additional stores.

Under the direction of CEO Jack Sinclair, Sprouts, which began as a small family business, has a practice of purchasing excess food (only non-gmo) from farmers. This allows for lower prices as well as sustainability. “This is our strategy, whether it’s pre-pandemic, post-pandemic or during the pandemic. We’re going to be putting ourselves in a place where we’ve got exceptional value in our produce and everyday products, ” said Sinclair. Hailing from Scotland, and demonstrating his skill set at 99 Cents Only Stores and Walmart prior to joining Sprouts, Sinclair was voted Executive of the Year 2021.

“We had a fantastic 2020! Our results are as follows: net sales grew 15% to $6.5 billion, and we had comparable-store sales of 6.9%, compared to 2019. Clearly, we have had some tailwinds from COVID, however, executing our strategic initiatives at a more rapid pace than we originally planned is fueling these encouraging results and establishing a solid base from which we can invest and grow.”
