Founded in 1971 and headquartered in Seattle, Washington, Metropolitan Market is an upscale grocery chain located in the greater Seattle‐Tacoma metropolitan area. In addition to its local produce and foreign and domestic grocery products, Metropolitan Market seeks to differentiate itself with an extensive selection of prepared foods and gourmet products. Each store has a full deli, an artisan bakery, a culinary kiosk, full service butcher and kitchen shops, an expansive offering of premium wines, fresh produce and aisles of specialty and conventional groceries.
The owners of Metropolitan Market partnered with Endeavour in 2012 to help them continue to grow the brand and expand locations more rapidly, while preserving the Company’s unique culture and legacy. Endeavour was attracted to the brand’s strong presence in the Seattle-Tacoma community, the opportunity for new store growth, and Metropolitan Market’s unique positioning in the high-end grocery space. Endeavour and management are focused on expanding the store base within local markets while continuing to focus on providing a premium shopping experience for Metropolitan Market’s loyal customers. The Company was sold in 2019 to a strategic buyer committed to preserving Good Food Holdings’ unique regional brands and customer-focused culture.
