Who founded Tesco

The story of Tesco

Well we all bought something from Tesco, it's a shop where people think everything is very cheap, but I've found it isn't that cheap, maybe it's just me.

Anyway, here's how Tesco's got so big over the years. Tesco was founded by Jack Cohen in 1919 when he started selling groceries from a small East End stand in London. The Tesco brand appeared for the first time in 1924.

The name "Tesco" was founded when Jack Cohen bought a batch of tea from T.E. bought. Stockwell created labels that used the first three letters of the vendor name (TES) and the first two letters of the last name (CO). When you put TES and CO together, the word TESCO surprisingly forms.

The first Tesco store opened in 1929. He bought a few more stores and supermarkets by the 1950s when it grew dramatically and had over 800 stores. The company bought out numerous smaller stores.

In 1973 Jack Cohen resigned and was replaced by his son-in-law Leslie Porter.

In 1994, Tesco's fought Sainsbury's for control of a Dundee-based company that operated 57 stores. This enabled Tesco to expand its branches to Scotland. In 1997 Tesco also expanded to Ireland.

In 1995, Tesco's launched its internet shopping service, which continues to be active and profitable for the company.

Since 2001, Tesco has been spreading its business across the UK, essentially buying up a small business it thought was worthy. Tesco now offers auto and home insurance, has its own cellular network, and has six different types of stores: Tesco Extra, Tesco Superstores, Tesco Metro, Tesco Express, Tesco Homeplus, and One Stop - Every Little Helps.

Here are two things that I'm not convinced are true, but you can decide for yourself:

There is no movie like Charlie and the Tesco Factory.
Tesco didn't buy the other side of the moon….
