In 1980's, Silicon Valley took shape in transformation, great development, and expansion. As Asian population grew, people demand for more fresh and high quality Asian groceries.
In 1987, Marina Food established the first supermarket, centered in San Mateo providing Asian Foods and groceries.
In 1990, hot deli department was added in the store, and it supplied traditional Chinese BBQ food and also hot meals as well. As business expanded, the second Cupertino store was opened with the first in-store Asian bakery to provide freshly prepared pastries in 1991. In the year of 2000, Marina Food opened the third store in Union City and later in 2009, Fremont store was added into the chain operation. Currently, Marina Food has four stores serving the Bay Area with a total area of 120,000 square feet merchandising space. Each store has in-store hot deli and bakery. A centralized modern factory producing Chinese buns, dumplings, and other pastries under highly hygiene environment was established in 2010.
