Alaska and Hawaii
It will probably come as no surprise to anyone that Aldi currently has no stores outside of the lower 48 states. That means no business in Alaska or Hawaii.
Since Aldi and Trader Joe’s have a lot in common, people are curious to know if Aldi owns Trader Joe’s, if Trader Joe’s owns Aldi, or if the companies are owned by the same company. It is important to check in advance that Aldi does not own Trader Joe’s. Trader Joe’s doesn’t own an Aldi either.
ALDI has about 5,000 branches worldwide and the two Albrecht brothers who own the company are among the richest in the world.
In July 2021, Aldi Süd operated 6,816 stores worldwide, including 2,100 stores in the United States.
Aldi intends to add about 150 new US stores in 2022, including continued expansion in the Gulf Coast region that will bring the deep discount grocer into its 38th state. Aldi US based in Batavia, Illinois, announced on Tuesday that it plans to open a store in Lafayette, La. on February 10, marking the chain’s first location in Louisiana.
But not Trader Joe’s, which is one of the most popular retailers currently not in Hawaii and has no plans to open stores.
In 1961 the brothers changed the name to Aldi, short for Albrecht Discount, and the business continued to grow.
We are opening stores in the Phoenix area. That means you have great job opportunities. ALDI is proud to be a trusted neighborhood grocery store and we’re excited to expand our business to serve you in the Phoenix area.
A common misconception about Aldi U.S. BB #:116756 is that it is a sister company or at least a cousin of Trader Joe’s BB #:162286. It is not. Although the two chains share some similarities, with both pursuing a low-price, private-label strategy, they are independently owned and operated.
Walmart is by far the largest and best-known grocery retailer in the world, consuming over a quarter of the grocery industry’s total annual sales.
Aldi has its roots in Germany, where it is owned by ALDI Süd (Süd), a historic leader in the German private label grocery industry with roots dating back to 1913. ALDI Süd operates more than 5,300 stores and more than 80 distribution centers in nine countries.
Great place to work
Working at Aldi was one of the best work experiences I’ve ever had, with a boss who is always committed to individual work-life balance Employee. You can always ask questions and be honest with him.
