While describing the values that have carried KTA Super Stores to its 100th year as a family-owned business, president and COO Toby Taniguchi brings up traditional Japanese concepts.
“The organization has been able to survive because our focus is not solely on the bottom line. Our focus is also on honoring the people, relationships and partnerships that those before us have built. Japanese call it on and giri, which mean gratitude and a sense of duty toward those who came before us.”
