Fortinos - The history
Fortinos is a chain of Canadian supermarkets. The company was established in 1961, when foreigner John Fortino, opened his first shop in Hamilton in Ontario. John Fortino came from Italy and at the beginning was working as a steelworker. The very first Fortinos shop was really successful. After seven years Fortino decided to open a second store. In 1972, with seven new business partners, who have seen a big potential in Fortino's chain, shop number two was opened. As predicted it was even more popular than the first one. The company started the expansion. In the Ontario area, new establishments were appearing rapidly.
