Food 4 Less began as a discount chain in California. It is now owned and operated by the Kroger Company and has stores located in five states. The mission of Food 4 Less is to "provide families with the best values in town." After being acquired by the Kroger Company in 1977, the operating company name of the Food 4 Less chain was changed to Foods Company since Kroger did not secure ownership of the Food 4 Less name in its acquisition of the chain. Due to pre-existing agreements with several wholesalers that permits them to franchise the Food 4 Less name, there are other Food 4 Less stores throughout the country that are operated by different companies, particularly a group of stores in California that is operated by PAQ, Inc. The Kroger Company was opened with just $370 in Cincinnati, Ohio, in 1883. Its headquarters are still located in Cincinnati. The company now has more than 24 subsidiaries in 34 states across the United States totalling more than 2,600 stores.
