Mother’s Market to Open 2 Stores
Mother’s Market & Kitchen is opening two new stores next year in Los Angeles, its first move out of Orange County since its founding in 1978. Mill Road Capital, a private equity investor, owns a majority stake in the company, but the original owners and employees continue to be investors.
The organic grocery stores will open in Signal Hill in early 2018 and in Manhattan Beach in the summer of 2018. Mother’s Market operates seven stores in Orange County, with the latest store opening in 2011.
Mill Road plans to open one to two stores per year, depending on real estate opportunities. Mother’s Market opened to cater to vegetarians, but has become a go-to store for organic, preservative-free and non-GMO foods.
