Longo Brothers Fruit Markets Inc., commonly known as just Longo's, is a family-run grocery chain in the Greater Toronto Area, Ontario, Canada. Its corporate office is located in Vaughan, and had been previously located in Mississauga.
Longo's was founded by brothers Tommy, Joe, and Gus Longo in 1956, who established their first store at the intersection of Yonge Street and Castlefield Avenue in Toronto. This store was about 2,000 square feet (190 m2), and had eight family members working there. The Longo brothers opened their second store in 1962, on Woodbine Avenue.
Longo's owns and operates 24 stores in the Greater Toronto Area, with more openings planned in the future. Most recently, a 48,000-square-foot (4,500 m2) flagship store was opened in Maple Leaf Square in Downtown Toronto. A new Longo's store opened in Milton on November 30, 2011.
In 2004, Longo's acquired online grocery retailer Grocery Gateway, providing Longo's with the largest online grocery retail presence in Canada.
Longo's currently has over 4,000 employees, and has been selected as one of Canada's Top 50 privately managed companies by the Financial Post newspaper for nine consecutive years (2000-2008), achieving platinum status.
Joe Longo Sr. died in the fall of 2008. Tommy Longo died on 30 January 2011.
