Cindy Lee

Taiwanese immigrant Cindy Lee opened the first two T& T Supermarkets in 1993 to provide Vancouver’s immigrant population with a familiar place to shop. T& T is now the largest Asian grocer in Canada, with nearly 30 stores. The Retail Council of Canada awarded Cindy and her daughter Tina—who succeeded her mother as CEO upon Cindy’s 2014 retirement—with the 2018 Canadian Grand Prix Trailblazer Lifetime Achievement Award. Cindy continues to support charitable causes.
