The firm dates back to 1946 when Grocery Outlet was founded by Jim Read. Jim’s sons, Peter and Steven Read took over and grew the grocery business during four decades to 150 stores operating in six Western states, along the way opportunistically acquiring their own store locations. Morgan Read joined his father and uncle in 2005 to build an operating platform to support, grow, and diversify a standalone commercial real estate development business.
