T&T Supermarket’s mission is to enrich the lifestyle of our customers by bringing Asian-Canadian families fresh foods that they love, and introducing the mainstream Canadian families the diversity of Asian food culture at stores that offer exceptional convenience, service, and value.
First Stores Open in BC
T&T Supermarket Inc. establishes its first 2 stores at Metrotown mall in Burnaby and at President’s Plaza in Richmond. Founding CEO, Cindy Lee, started the business with her husband, with the dream of revolutionizing the grocery shopping experience for Asian Canadian families. Prior to starting T&T, Cindy was the bookkeeper for her husband Jack’s food importing business. Together they supported three children at home – Tina, Tiffany and Jason.
