|Key people||Peter Tedeschi, CEO|
Tedeschi Food Shops is a chain of 189 convenience stores (as of March 2010), located primarily in Massachusetts, with 10 stores in New Hampshire, 2 stores in Rhode Island, and 1 store in Connecticut.
Angelo Tedeschi, in 1923, opened a store in the basement of the family home in Rockland, Massachusetts. Since then, the Tedeschi family has been involved in the retail food industry, early on in the grocery store industry, and more recently in the convenience store industry. In 1972, the Tedeschi family acquired the Curtis Compacts chain of convenience stores, which was later renamed to Tedechi Food Shops.
Tedeschi Food Shops acquired the Lil Peach chain in 1996 and the Store 24 chain in 2002.
