...started by the Albrecht brothers. Aldi's is short for "ALbrecht's DIScount". There are two separate corporate entities operating as Aldi's, both owned by the Albrecht brothers, who have since retired as Germany's richest men.

One brother, who ran the Aldi's entity that came to the United States, started Trader Joe's as a separate company.

That's the story I got from Wikipedia, in a nutshell.
