Fry's Electronics is heading into its ninth year as the title sponsor of the Frys.com Open, formerly in Scottsdale, now at its current location San Martin, California. Fry's Electronics, Inc. was founded in 1985 in Sunnyvale, California, in a 20,000 square-foot facility by the three Fry brothers, John, Randy, and Dave; and Kathy Kolder. Fry's Electronics is a closely-held private company, and all of the founders are actively involved in the daily operation of the business.
Fry's was founded as a Silicon Valley retail electronics store to provide a one-stop-shopping environment for the hi-tech professional. Fry's retails more than 50,000 electronic items within each store, now totaling 34. There are currently stores in Northern California, Southern California, Texas, Arizona, Georgia, Illinois, Indiana, Nevada, Oregon and Washington. The stores range in size from 50,000 to more than 180,000 square feet. Fry's also provides customers with added shopping opportunities via its online store at Frys.com.
