The son of John Canning, Madison Dearborn Partner’s chairman, has started a high-end supermarket in the Chicagoland area, according to the Chicago Tribune.
Tim Canning has opened Lemon Tree Grocer in Downers Grove, Ill. Canning and his partner, Shaun Black, own most of the business, which cost more than $1 million to launch, the Tribune said. Michael’s Fresh Market owns a small stake as does an unnamed investor group. His father does not own a stake, the report said.
Lemon Tree offers items like grilled turkey meatloaf, sushi and made-to-order salads, sandwiches and wraps.
