Is Aldi's owned by Trader Joe's?

Chef's answer
Nope! ALDI and Trader Joe's don't share the same parent company, have no joint ownership, and are independently operated. But, the two stores do share a common family heritage. The original ALDI (at the time, Albrecht Diskont) opened back in the early 1900s as a single German grocery store.
