When Tom Raley opened his first grocery store in Placerville, California in 1935, he had big ambitions to transform the grocery business. With a zeal for improvement, Tom set out to reshape the way customers buy food. Its innovations—from opening the nation’s first self-serve meat counter to housing a grocery store and pharmacy under one roof—have always been made with the goal of making customers’ lives easier.
Through Tom’s vision and hard work, a family of stores has grown across Northern California and Nevada. Under the second generation leadership of Tom’s daughter, Joyce Raley Teel, and her husband, Jim Teel, Raley has brought quality and service to a new era for the customer. Joyce’s role in founding Raley’s Food for Families, a nonprofit to help feed the food-insecure in our own neighborhoods, affirmed the West Sacramento-based company’s concern for the community.

While working indirectly and directly in the business, Joyce was Raley’s heart, sharing her passion and commitment to team members and the community.

Mike defined the company’s vision and purpose: to infuse life with health and happiness by changing the way we eat, one plate at a time. He championed health and wellness by creating Raley’s exclusive Shelf Guide labeling program and other bold steps to improve the overall food system. Mike reaffirmed Raley’s commitment to personalized service by advancing convenient online shopping and the Something Extra savings program. Under Mike’s leadership, Raley’s is continually innovating to make healthier food more accessible to everyone.
