About Esselunga, Florence

Esselunga S.p.A. is an Italian retail store chain. Founded in 1957 by Nelson Rockefeller, Bernardo, Guido and Claudio Caprotti, Marco Brunelli, the Crespi family and other Italian associates, the company is now entirely owned by the Caprotti family through Supermarkets Italiani S.p.A. It was the first supermarket chain in Italy, with Giuseppe Caprotti, to introduce on-line shopping and self-produced organic products. With 20,000 employees, the company had a €6.8 billion turnover in 2012. Esselunga controls about 9% of the Italian grocery distribution market. It is ranked as the fourth most profitable company in the European retail sector (in proportion to its size) and it is Italy's 23rd largest company. Until 1999, Esselunga owned 50% of the Italian branch of Penny Market (a REWE group company). Esselunga was entirely owned by Bernardo Caprotti until his death in 2016, and is not listed on the stock market. In his will, Bernardo Caprotti left 66.7% of Esselunga to his second wife Giuliana Albera and their daughter Marina Sylvia, and 16.7% to each of his children from his first marriage, his son Giuseppe Caprotti and his daughter Violetta.

  • We stayed in the area for two months and this was our to-go supermarket. Prices are ok for inside the city, and we recommend you get the Esselunga Affidati card for the discounts. We saved a bunch of money thanks to that (it's just a member card not credit or something).

  • Automatic cashiers dont have english langue option. Lines in regular ones had huge slow lines, but otherbaspects were great.

  • Excellent grocery chain, best prices in italy, great deals all the time

  • One of my favourite things to do when visiting a new country is prowl the aisles of the supermarket. Will not disappoint.

  • Amazing food, very cheap but very good "fast food"
