business news in context, analysis with attitude

The Orlando Sentinel reports that Sedano’s, which operates more than two dozen Hispanic supermarkets in South Florida, plans to buy three Albertsons stores in Central Florida and convert them to its format; if the experiment goes well, the chain reportedly will open more stores in the Central Florida region.

The move is said to reemphasize the importance of the growing Hispanic market in the Orlando area. According to the Sentinel, “Sedano's joins Bravo, another Hispanic supermarket chain that has several locations in Central Florida. Publix, meanwhile, has a Sabor specialty market in Kissimmee.”
