Searching, selecting and developing future owners is one of the most important things we do, and we take it very seriously. There are two paths to ownership, straight into a Four Square or our Supermarket Trainee Operator Programme (TOP).

If you are looking to change careers or own your own business already, and have capital to invest, then a Four Square could be a good option for you. In these businesses you’ll experience what it’s like to be a retailer, the grocery trade, and the leadership skills and commercial acumen that are essential to run a successful store.

To become a supermarket owner, you will need to find a suitable role in store to learn about the industry, this role could then provide you with the path to our Trainee Operator Programme. It requires dedication and commitment to learning about the grocery trade, alongside an owner operator who will support and mentor you through to our ownership assessment centres. You need to complete our Trainee Operator programme before you are eligible to purchase a New World or PAK’nSAVE.
