Hispanics have become the largest racial or ethnic group in California. In 2020, there were about 15.6 million Hispanics in California, up from 14.0 million in 2010. The next largest group, the non-Hispanic White population, declined from 15.0 million to 13.7 million during this time, reflecting a broader national trend.
According to the Pew Research Center statistics, Latinos accounted for 39% of California’s population in 2020, among the highest shares in the country. Los Angeles County has the nation’s largest Hispanic population, a distinction it has held since the census first included a Hispanic category in 1980. Los Angeles County has more than 4.8 million Hispanics.
The company is headquartered in Ontario, CA, and currently operates a total of 51 stores under the Cardenas Markets banner, 7 stores under the Los Altos Ranch Markets banner, 6 stores under the Rio Ranch Markets banner, and 1 store under Cardenas Ranch Markets banner.
