Bashas’ has a long, memorable history with Arizona. Founded here in 1932 we have been a part of this state’s growth, growing from one location in Chandler to over 100 statewide. We have experienced ups and downs as our state evolves, our communities grow and are proud to be Arizona’s Hometown Grocer.

The Basha family name can be seen everywhere from street names to high school and elementary school names, giving our customers a feel for just how engrained into Arizona the family, and the company is.
