supermarkets in Kenya 13 .png-min

Here are the top supermarkets in Kenya. There has been a rapid increase in the number of supermarkets in Kenya although we have also seen some go under due to mismanagement and misappropriations of funds.

With the rise of malls almost in all major towns in Kenya, we have seen a rise in the number of supermarket chains in Kenya seeking to take advantage of the huge spaces that come in these malls.

More and more Kenyans are shopping in supermarkets than ever before. This has an advantage of shopping for large items in one location. You can also eat at some of these supermarkets. In a nutshell, there so many things you can do and buy in most supermarkets in Kenya.

Without much ado, let us look at the top supermarkets in Kenya

2.Tusky’s Supermarket

supermarkets in Kenya 2-min

Tusky’s is one off the most well-known supermarket chains in Kenya. In fact, with the demise of Nakumatt, Tuskys seem to have expanded to most towns and suburbs in Kenya. It arguably the largest supermarket in Kenya.

The story of Tuskys’s begins with one Mzee Joram Kamau who in 1985 begun a store in Rongai in Nakuru Country. His vision was to enable customers to ‘pay less, and get more’. Over time he formed a great bond with the founder of Nakuru Mattresses (know the default Nakumatt) and this would enable him grow his business.

With the desire to grow, he left his first store to his brother to open a store called Tusker Mattress. This would with dedication and hard work, grow to what today we know as Tusky’s. The store he left to his brother would latter grow to what is now Naivas supermarket.

Branches

Tuskys has 55 branches in Kenya and 7 in Uganda. Here is a list of them all.

Foodplus Chandarana chain of supermarkets started in 1964, as a single grocery store, operated by the family, the late entrepreneur Shantilal Mulji Thakkar, with twelve employees.
