Coborn's began in 1921 when Chester Coborn opened a produce market in Sauk Rapids, Minnesota. Over the years, Chester and his son, Duke, grew the market by adding various food lines, dry goods and groceries. Chester's two sons, Chester Jr. and Duke, took over the business after their father's death in 1929. They led the company as it evolved with the addition of meat products in 1936; the acquisition of shopping carts and checkouts in the 1940s; and the move to cash and carry in the 1950s.
In 1957, Duke's four sons, Dan, Bob, Bill and Ron, took over the business following the death of their father. They constructed new stores in other parts of central Minnesota. Over time, they established a trusted, well-recognized retail identity by installing the latest innovations and amenities – all in an effort to meet the growing needs of guests. Today, Bob, Bill and Ron have passed on and until very recently, Dan has remained active in the business, serving as Chairman of the Board. The Coborn family continues to maintain ownership of the company, and fourth and fifth generation family members, Chris (Dan's son) and Emily (Chris' daughter), now serve in leadership roles.
Today, Coborn's, Inc. owns and operates more than 120 retail locations, including 54 grocery stores throughout Minnesota, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois, North Dakota and South Dakota. These locations operate under the brands of Coborn's, Cash Wise Foods, Marketplace Foods and Save-A-Lot. Coborn's, Inc. also has an online grocery ordering and delivery service named CobornsDelivers; stand-alone convenience, liquor, video, pharmacy, Country Floral, and Ace Hardware stores; several in-store coffee shops and a Subway restaurant. To support its many retail locations, Coborn's, Inc. operates its own central bakery, dry cleaning facility and grocery distribution center. In addition to our 120+ retail destinations, Coborn's, Inc. has around 8,000 employees – now that's quite a family!
In 2006, the Coborn family adopted an employee stock ownership plan or “ESOP” to allow eligible employees to become co-owners of the company. Employees now have the opportunity to directly benefit from the success of the company. With a strong ownership stake in the company, all employees are encouraged to take pride in ownership, which means taking responsibility for everything they do while at work and making decisions like an owner. Employees taking pride in ownership have played a key role in the growth of Coborn's, Inc.; their dedication, ideas and commitment to serving the guest have largely contributed to the company's success.
In addition to remarkable employees, the success of Coborn's, Inc. is rooted in truly caring for guests and the community. Each year, Coborn's, Inc. donates more than $2.5 million and thousands of volunteer hours to the communities it serves. Corporate trademarks include generous monetary and in-kind donations to local non-profit organizations serving children and families in need; local food shelves; the Coborn Cancer Center; and more.
