The History Of Young’s Market Company

In 1888, John G. Young decided to open a retail store in downtown Los Angeles, marking the beginning of the Young’s Market Company. In 1906, all five Young brothers join the company, and it slowly began to develop into a prominent retail market chain in California.

After the end of the prohibition, in 1933, Young’s Market Company still has the retail business but is starting to devote more energy towards the marketing of wine and liquor. They acquired a franchise known as Dr. Pepper in 1940, and slowly stopped the retail part of the business, devoting their efforts on the wholesale of wine, spirits, and food.

In 1963, after the death of William G. Young, the last of the Young brothers, Vernon O. Underwood, Sr. takes on the role of President of the Young’s Market Company, starting to slowly spread the company’s operations, entering other states in the Western US like Hawaii, and much later in Oregon, Alaska and Washington.

Under the guidance of Vernon O. Underwood, Sr., they have expanded their business, and after his death, the Underwood family bought out all the shareholders, becoming a completely family-owned company. In 1990, Vernon O. Underwood, Jr. discontinued all other branches of the company, focusing specifically on wine and spirits.

They celebrated the 100th anniversary in 1988, and in 2018, their 130th anniversary. The Company has state of the art distribution centers in several states and are continuing the tradition, by preserving the core values which are family, integrity, quality, teamwork and entrepreneurial spirit.
