Sarandi was outlined in the Company's maps Improvements of Northern Paraná in 1947. It was the beginning of the sale of lots in urban region, which would constitute the locality and would only serve to "supply center" of the Railroad Rede Viação Parana/Santa Catarina.

However, documents and statements related to possession of land reveal the presence of families in the rural area since the 1930s, coming to increase considerably in the next decade.

The first families misfits careen their way toward the ground, opened clearings and formed the first coffee plantations. Many of these pioneers, years later, were the first residents also in urban area, contributing to the development of the locality.

The first inhabitants were, in their majority, immigrants coming from the state of São Paulo and the Brazilian Northeastern region, dreaming with the riches of Northern Paraná. They have acquired their lands, by opening the mata and forming large rural lots. Thus began the planting of coffee.

In the urban area, in 1974, the loteadoras began the sale of land. But the real estate boom occurred in 1976. On occasion, a large number of families left the field by virtue of frost which decimated the coffee plantations.

The success in selling urban land made possible the opening of new subdivisions. The strong economic growth, the expansion of the urban area and the increase in the collection of taxes are driving the emergence of a popular movement calling for the political emancipation of the locality, which at that time belonged to Marialva. A popular plebiscite in 1981 approved the creation of the municipality of Sarandi, according to the Law in 7052/1982.[2]
