WinCo Foods’ opening of its Bremerton supermarket April 1 marks its 18th location in Washington state. The 55,000 square-foot Bremerton WinCo is located at 4969 Kitsap Way.
The company attributes continued growth largely to being an employee-owned private company or “S corporation employee stock ownership plan.”
Nearly 200 people have been employed at the Bremerton store, with a majority from the local community, according to a statement from Employee-Owned S Corporations of America.
Founded in 1967, WinCo Foods is a regional discount supermarket company employing approximately 14,000 individuals and operating 85 stores and four distribution centers in Washington, Idaho, Nevada, California, Oregon, Utah and Arizona.
