Does Trader Joe's have franchise locations?

Answer

Trader Joe's actually started out in 1958 as a chain of convenience stores called Pronto Markets. In 1967, they changed their name to Trader Joe's and changed their business model. They started specializiing in California wines. By 1972, they had created their own product label. It was not until 1993 that they opened their first store outside of California. Ten years later they have close to 400 stores nationwide. Trader Joe's is a privately held chain of stores; they do not franchise.
