Narinder Singh Badhan was just 20 years old when he moved to Sydney and opened his first grocery store.

His mission was to make fresh produce and quality, ready-made meals as accessible as possible, and so the independent boutique grocer, QE Foodstores, was born. 

To this day, the first QE Foodstores on Victoria Street, Darlinghurst, still carries only the freshest fruit and vegetables, straight from Sydney’s best markets. 

“Our extensive range of products is carefully picked for its quality and variety, and includes specialty and gourmet goods, as well as affordable everyday brands,” Mr Badhan said.

“We listen to our customers, and are always on the lookout for new products to deliver the best shopping experience possible.”

Other QE Foodstores have since been introduced to Oxford Street, Balmain, Camperdown, Newtown, Randwick, Waterloo and Waverley.

“Word of mouth has started to spread beyond our loyal local customers and our large product range of staple, specialty and gourmet groceries is now attracting people from surrounding suburbs, who will regularly make a special trip to a QE Foodstores location,” Mr Badhan said.

Six weeks ago and 16 years after the first store started attracting customers, Mr Badhan has just opened his ninth store in Milsons Point.

“This is our first Lower North Shore offering and it is already set to become our highest-performing store,” Mr Badhan said.

“With no other competing supermarket in the Lavender Bay retail catchment, our customers are pleased to be able to have such a high quality option at their fingertips.”

Mr Badhan said when he started QE Foodstores, his mission statement was “Quality food shopping made easier”, and he continues to ensure the brand lives up to its reputation.

“As the demand grows for good quality food, fresh and organic produce, and ready-to-eat meals, we focus on delivering the ultimate convenience, as our customers are very time poor,” he said.

“Our goal is to keep growing and provide a great range of products and services to many more Sydney neighbourhoods. We are constantly on the lookout for new sites in the inner city and east, and we’re now very seriously considering additional sites on the Lower North Shore.”
