- Did you know that Costco outpaces all competitors? Sam’s Club generates $586 per square foot; Costco $1,000 per square foot.
The Granddaddy of them all? Whole Foods. Memorial Day, 1981: the floods in Austin killed 13 people and caused millions in damage to the city at large. The flood wiped out the very first Whole Foods store only eight months after it opened. They had no insurance, no savings, no warehoused inventory and no options. Until….people started to show up at the store. Team members worked for free, customers showed up in work clothes to mop, and suppliers extended credit. The result: Whole Foods re-opened in an amazing 28 days for business and became the company we know and love today.
