“To provide the freshest produce, the finest international groceries, and the choicest Halal meats — all at a price everyone can afford.”
In November of 1987, Khouraki bought an egg ranch on the corner of Brookhurst and Ball in Anaheim, located next to an Italian restaurant and a flower shop. After a few months of remodeling, the new Altayebat Market was opened in April of 1988, at almost double the size of the previous store.
Over three decades later, Altayebat has expanded three times, remodeled four times, and is still growing. What was once the only business in the area of its kind is now surrounded by more Middle-Eastern businesses than one can count. Doctors, dentists, bookstores, restaurants, coffee shops, community centers, and yes, even other grocery stores have all sprung up in this area within the last several years — so much so that the area of Anaheim has been dubbed “Little Arabia.”
Times may have changed, but one thing remains the same: Altayebat Market has been and will continue to be committed to providing the community with the best products at the best prices. Arabs, Americans, Armenians, Indians, Chinese, Pakistanis, Bulgarians, Iranians, Afghanis, Malaysians, Mexicans, French, Romanians, and many others of different nationalities have made Altayebat Market what it is today. They all know Altayebat is the place to go for everyday items, as well as those that are hard to find. Although our business has gotten larger over the years, we are still a Mom & Pop store at heart and will try to please every customer and every need. As long as we continue this mission, we have done our job.
