Prior to Fairway Market’s bankruptcy, investors believed that every organic foods retailer was poised to experience growth and be extremely profitable. However, after the bankruptcy, many came to the hard realization that just like in any industry, an organic foods retailer is capable of failure.
Sprouts Farmers Market (NASDAQ:SFM) is a rapidly growing, value-oriented, specialty grocery concept, offering natural, organic, and healthy products at prices competitive with conventional grocers. The Company operates 240 stores, primarily in the Southwest, but has been expanding into the Southeast and the Midwest as well. Its motto is “Healthy living for less,” and it targets middle-income consumers who want to lead a healthy lifestyle without paying premium prices. It offers quality, fresh, natural, and organic products at attractive prices in every department.
It has a deep heritage in organic and natural food market
The company was founded in Arizona in 2002 by members of a family with a long history of selling fresh and natural foods to a broad demographic of customers. By 2010, the company had 54 stores and was generating $629M in revenue. In 2011, the company partnered with a private equity firm, Apollo Fund and, through acquisitions, it expanded its footprint. It started as a specialty grocery store, and in 2011, the company took an initiative to become an everyday healthy grocery store. Now it is trying to become a healthy grocery and food destination.

When it comes to standard features, the Kona generally outpaces the EcoSport. Most items typically found on rivals are available on both SUVs, but the EcoSport requires that you add them as options or step up to the next trim level. The Kona widens its features lead by offering more advanced safety features (forward collision warning with automatic emergency braking, lane keeping assist and a driver attention monitor), a head-up display and a wireless charging pad. These are not available for any EcoSport.
