People are realising the meaning behind Waitrose's name & they're stunned | The Sun

EVER wondered what the real meaning is behind Waitrose's name?

Most people have probably been inside a Waitrose at some point in their lives, but people are only just realising where the supermarket chain got its name.

Waitrose was started in 1904 by three men: Wallace Wyndham Waite, Arthur Rose and David Taylor who opened their first shop in Acton.

Many people don't know that the shop was named after two of its founders: Waite and Rose.

When Taylor left the business, Waite and Rose formed the widely recognised name Waitrose in 1908.

Waite made a name for himself promoting products from all over the world – things like Canadian honey and Indian tea.

The supermarket joined the John Lewis Partnership in 1937 and has become one of the most well known brands in the country.

Waitrose revealed the true history behind their brand on their website, but only keen eyed fans discovered this.

This comes after people discovered the real meaning of the Apple Maps logo, and the true meaning behind the name Google.

But for some people on Twitter, the supermarket revelation came as no surprise.

One said: "Wallace Waite, Arthur Rose and David Taylor opened a small grocery business in Acton in west London in 1904 as 'Waite, Rose & Taylor'. The rest, as they say, is history."

But others are a little confused: "the founders of Waitrose are Wallace Waite, Arthur Rose and David Taylor so surely it should be called Waitrosetaylor..?"

It certainly doesn't quite have the same ring to it.
