Bravo Supermarket is a chain that operates in various locations, mostly in the northeastern United States, including New York, New Jersey, and Connecticut. They also have several locations in Florida. They sell an array of products including fresh produce and cater to much of the Latino population.
The Bravo group was founded in the early 1990’s and they wanted to bring the New York shopping experience to those in Florida. Whether this was because a lot of people from New York moved to Florida and the company wanted to give them a taste of home, or whether it was because New York is the shopping capital, therefore a New York shopping experience is a powerful statement. They worked together with their already established sister company, C-Town Supermarkets.
The fourth and fifth stores were opened in Orlando as opposed to New York. At the time, Orlando was flowing with Hispanic New Yorkers, therefore the company was already known by many people and targeted at the Hispanic market. For these reasons, the store was an instant success and paved the way for several more to be opened. If you walk in to one of these stores, you can shop for Goya beans, listen to Latin music and see potted palm trees.
Sixteen stores in total were opened across Florida, briging authentic Hispanic ingredients to the community. This would not have been possible if it was not for Krasdale, the supplier, agreeing to supply their produce outside of New York. The stores range from small stores at 7,000 square fee to much larger stores at 25,000 square foot. This means that the stores are sized between the tiny bodegas’ in the area and the giant superstores.
In 2008 a branch opened on the northside, because they took advantage of the gap in the market for a good supermarket with an inbuilt pharmacy. Other services that this new store offered include custom cuts of meat, a deli and a department full to the brim of fresh produce.
