About Juan Roig
From a mere butcher store which specializes in offering food products, Juan Roig’s father Francisco Roig Ballester was able to develop the Carnica Roig into Mercadona which is now a grocery store directed by Juan Roig. His wife Hortensia and siblings Amparo, Francisco, Trinidad, and Fernando are also involved in the business’ operation but only Juan took the courage to lead the company.
Mercadona now is a family owned business which specializes in offering a wide variety of goods including foods, hygiene, household cleaning, medicines, pet products, dried and fresh goods as well as perfumes. Juan Roig established a Total Quality Model which would ensure the satisfaction of the five major components of the company which includes the capital, the company, the worker, the head and the provider.
In 1999, the company claims that it employs around 16,800 permanent workers at that time and today, the company has over 61,000 workers who have permanent contracts. By the end of 2007, the company has already opened 1,137 supermarkets throughout the Spanish geography.
