Jumbo is a family company and enjoys a rich history of successful entrepreneurship. As it currently stands, Jumbo boasts almost 700 supermarkets, 8 food-markets and a thriving online order and delivery service.
Additionally, Jumbo started with the new convenience store concept in which elements of the regular Jumbo shops, food-market and La Place restaurants are combined. Jumbo’s goal herein is to make tasty and healthy food readily available for everyone. Jumbo has a specific formula meaning best service, largest assortment and lowest price, which enables customers to trust Jumbo’s “7 Promises”. In 2009, Jumbo took over the supermarket chain Super de Boer and in 2012, C1000 (the even bigger supermarket chain) followed. In 2016, Jumbo took over the food service formula La Place. In 2018, the takeover of EMTÉ was completed; and through these takeovers, Jumbo was able to transform from local supermarket company to a nationwide and leading retailer in Holland.
