Career

Mackey co-founded his first food store, SaferWay, in 1978 alongside his girlfriend, Renee Lawson. They met while living in vegetarian housing. They dropped out of college and borrowed $10,000, and raised $35,000 more to start SaferWay. The two ran the market, and they lived in the third story of their building. In two years, they merged SaferWay with Clarksville Natural Grocery, run by Mark Skiles and Craig Weller, and renamed the business Whole Foods Market. 

Mackey built Whole Foods into a multinational organization, with outlets in major markets across the country. Along the way, he bought out smaller competitors. In 2007, Whole Foods purchased a major natural foods supermarket competitor, Wild Oats Markets, Inc.

Whole Foods was the first grocery chain to set standards for humane animal treatment. Animal rights activist Lauren Ornelas influenced him. In 2006, he announced he was reducing his salary to $1 a year, would donate his stock portfolio to charity, and set up a $100,000 emergency fund for staff facing personal problems. The following year, The Wall Street Journal revealed that he was using the pseudonym “Rahodeb” to post to Yahoo Finance forums. Mackey resigned from the position of Chairman of the Board of Whole Foods Market in 2009. He held that position since 1978.
