Happy 95th!


I miss your grocery store in 5-Points and I definitely miss the kitchen gadget store on Carrillo...Chapala...DeLaVina!

In 1915, four Jordano brothers opened a small market in Santa Barbara. More store openings soon followed, and by the 1950s the family-owned business was operating the first chain of supermarkets on the Central Coast. Jordano's stores were known for high quality products, innovative merchandising, and superior customer service. The company grew to become the area's largest wholesale distributor of foodand beverages, and one of the 50 largest companies of its kind in the United States.

Today, Jordano's is still family and employee owned, very proud of its Santa
Barbara heritage, and committed to supporting the local community.
