They was a time Nakumatt, Uchumi and Tuskys ruled the supermarket roost in Kenya. The first two came tumbling down like a house of cards amid failed resuscitation attempts by stakeholders. This paved the way for new entrants in the market like Quick Mart chain of supermarkets. For beginners, Quick Mart was founded in 2006 by the late businessman John Kinuthia. The then little-known supermarket outside the borders of Nakuru has made tremendous growth thanks to the business acumen of Kinuthia’s son, Duncan Kinuthia, who took over its operations from his dad.

The acquisition saw Quick Mart merge with Tumaini Self Service Limited, also acquired by the same investors in December 2018 under the special service vehicle Sokoni Retail Kenya controlled by Adenia.
