This is a list of the largest companies active in the Specialty Food Stores industry. This differs from market share in the following example: One business with revenues of $100 million generates 10% of its business from the Specialty Food Stores industry. A second firm, with revenues of $20 million, generates all of its business from this industry. In our list, we show the businesses having revenues of $100 million and $20 million, respectively. However, the market share would compare the $10 million in industry-specific revenue to the $20 million: the second company has twice the market share even though it is "smaller" in size.

Typically, small or midsized companies are in "growth" mode and can expand more rapidly. However, large businesses may have the strategy and financial capabilities to scale rapidly.

.Small Business Financing

Small businesses that have received financing may expand soon. Financing may be required for capital-intensive investments, such as real estate or equipment purchases. Specialty Food Stores businesses may use the financing to cover startup expenses or the costs of hiring new employees. Loans differ from equity investments in the level of risk that is expected: loans frequently have collateral either directly or implicitly through the business or the owners that ensure repayment. Equity investment has the possibility for much greater returns, but offers no guarantee the principle will be repaid. Convertible securities combine the two concepts, but is used by private-equity firms rather than main street startups.
