Tesco was founded in 1919 by Jack Cohen as a group of market stalls. The Tesco name first appeared in 1924. The first Tesco store opened in 1929 in Burnt Oak, Middlesex. His business expanded rapidly, and by 1939 he had over 100 Tesco stores across England. The company was successful, and the chain grows from 500 stores in the mid-1990s to 2,500 stores fifteen years later.
