John Mackey

John Mackey opened his first market in 1978 with a $45,000 investment and a dedication to providing healthier food choices to customers. He co-founded Whole Foods Market in 1980, which consistently rates in the top 20 of Fortune magazine's "100 Best Companies to Work For" and has a higher profitability per square foot than Wal-Mart. Mackey also co-founded FLOW, a non-profit dedicated to "liberating the entrepreneurial spirit for good."
