Steve and Debbee Tarr are the operators of the Grocery Outlet located in Manteca, California. In 1995, Steve began working for the company as a Freezer Assistant. After several years and numerous promotions, Steve decided it was time to begin operator training and he convinced Debbee to start with him. The couple's training moved them to the North Tacoma Grocery Outlet in 2000. Then in 2002, they took their first store in Yuba City, California. A year later they took the Victorville Grocery Outlet and in July of 2009, they took over the store here in Manteca.
