Asian grocery stores are a staple in California; I can count over a dozen here in Sacramento alone. As the growth of Asian markets continues across the United States, Maison Solutions, a California-based grocer offering traditional Asian food, announced its acquisition of Lee Lee Oriental Supermart.

John Xu, President and Chief Executive Officer, Maison Solutions"This transaction demonstrates our strategy of expanding by acquisition in geographic locations with large and growing Asian and ethnic populations," said John Xu, President and Chief Executive Officer of Maison Solutions. "Lee Lee International Supermarkets has an established brand presence in Arizona and is a perfect fit for Maison, giving us a base for further growth in the region.”

The retailer agreed to buy the Arizona three-store chain, which operates under the name Lee Lee International Supermarkets, for $22.2 million.

This deal will effectively double Maison Solutions’ size as the retailer expects annual revenue to jump to $70 million, according to a release. The acquisition will also expand Maison Solutions—which has six Southern California stores—into new markets.
