Company description

Demoulas Super Markets, based in Massachusetts, operates approximately 60 grocery stores in Massachusetts and New Hampshire. Under the names of Market Basket and Demoulas Super Market, they employ over 12,000 people. Originally a single mom and pop grocery store, it was bought in 1954 by the two Demoulas brothers, George and Mike. They expanded the number of super markets and acquired real estate interests. An agreement to maintain the company's 50-50 ownership in the event of one brother's death became the grounds for a suit in 1990. It was filed by the family of George Demoulas, alleging they had been defrauded. A long court battle decided in favor of George's family and it was upheld on appeal. Mike Demoulas resigned his position as President and CEO early in 1999. The Demoulas Super Markets' major competitors are Hannaford Brothers, Shaw's, and Stop and Shop.
