About Us


Ryan’s is a family business. We opened our first supermarket at Northway (Ballarat North) in 1979, Pleasant Park (Ballarat) in 1983, Torquay in 1985, and Midvale (Mt. Clear) 1989. In 2001, we opened our first stand alone liquor store in Ballarat and followed with another in Colac in December 2003. We purchased an existing supermarket in Beaufort in March 2004 and a supermarket in Kyneton in 2007. 

Ryan’s soon established ourselves as giving excellent customer service. A foundation on which we still see as a vital component in differentiating ourselves from our competitors.

 Our eight stores allow us to have the required buying power to be very competitive. We aim to support our local suppliers wherever possible by buying locally and supporting our local communities.

All our Store Managers with their teams are encouraged to participate within the community through IGA Community Chest and other local sponsorship and involvement.
