Just three years after surpassing the 200-store mark, Phoenix-based Sprouts Farmers Market opened its 300th store in Simpsonville, S.C.
How did we get here?
Sprouts began as a produce stand operated by Henry Boney in San Diego in 1943. The business flourished, eventually becoming Henry’s Farmers Market, which sold to Wild Oats Market in the 1990s.
Henry’s son and grandson, Stan and Shon Boney opened the first Sprouts Farmers Market in Chandler, Ariz., in 2002.
