Fry’s Electronics is headquartered in Sunnyvale California and its first store was opened in 1985. The brother’s Fry, John, Randy, and Dave, got the seed money for their electronics store from their father. Charles Fry had been successful in the grocery business, & and sold his franchise, Fry’s Supermarket, for $40 million.
Fry’s began by stocking high-tech supplies such as software, computer components, integrated circuits, and test and measurement equipment. They also sold tech books, porno magazines, T- shirts and snacks.
He then gave a portion to each son to do what they wished. Since none of the boys were interested in the grocery business they decided to pool their money and open an electronics store instead.
Fry’s electronics owns 34 stores. These ones are very large and require a wide variety of employees to maintain their badness.
Another offshoot was the mall-based chain of electronics stores called "Impulse." These stores carried small personal electronics and cell phones. In 1995 the name was changed to Fry’s Electronics express to capitalize on the Fry’s Electronics name.
