Food Lion  was established in Salisbury, North Carolina, in the year 1957. The founders of this brand store were three people: Ralph Ketner, Brown Ketner and Wilson Smith. But, at that time the name was Food Town. After that the grocer Delhaize who was based in Belgium purchased the Food Town Company. After several years of this affair, the name was changed to Food Lion in the year 1983.  

Despite this alteration of the name that puzzled the customers, it proved to be cost-effective as well as adding the historical sense of Delhaize. The Belgian company, which was formerly known as "Delhaize Le Lion," was able to rename its new American counterpart by just modifying the two letters of the Food Town brand. All through the 1980s, Food Lion extended all over the Mid-Atlantic as well as the Southeastern United States and became very successful when a lot of supermarkets were not able to do the same. The quality, variety and, moreover, the pric,e were the three reasons behind its super popularity in each and every city and town.
