In 1982, Fred’s introduced the FIRST breaded mozzarella cheese sticks – now a standard menu item in many establishments. Fred’s for Starters® continue to create many household and restaurant favorites.

Jean Lee’s family came to the United States in 1963, settling in Los Angeles. They opened a Chinese Deli, and it soon became one of the busiest restaurants in Chinatown. The restaurant was the first Chinese “fast food” concept, and they followed old family recipes, filling the kitchen with the scent of barbecue roasted pork, fresh seafood cooked in woks and stir-fried vegetables.

Jean Lee expanded the manufacturing part of the business to include a USDA facility, producing an extensive line of authentic Dim Sum and more than a dozen different varieties of Egg Rolls. Golden Tiger is another example of a fine family tradition translating into products that are now being sold nationally. Golden Tiger is one of the largest suppliers of Asian Dim Sum in as a result of many years of hard work by the Lee family.

Mexican Food Made Easy

The Butcher Boy Food Company embarked on its journey as a humble, family-owned meat grinding establishment nestled in the heart of Riverside, California back in 1950. A transformative milestone arrived in 1964 when the Butcher Boy brand unveiled its now-iconic frozen burritos, a moment that ushered in a remarkable era of growth. Swiftly, the brand ascended to its esteemed position as a steadfast cornerstone in the realm of frozen Mexican foods.

Legendary Southwest Chili

The legendary taste of the Original Chili Bowl has been satisfying hearty appetites for more than 50 years. The Original Chili Bowl Restaurant in Tulsa, Oklahoma, began cooking chili back in 1947. Their original recipe started with fresh ground beef, blended with tantalizing herbs and spices, and was kettle-cooked over a slow fire.

Still made the same way, the Original Chili Bowl is then flash-frozen to seal in all the taste and flavor.

Famous for its Homemade,
Family Chili Recipe

Whitey’s Premium Chili was founded by Harry “Whitey” Bigadza in a small bar in 1939. Bigadza opened his own tavern in Richfield, Ohio where Whitey’s Chili continues to spread famously across the state. Although Whitey’s Premium Chili is manufactured now, it is made with the original recipe, hoping to take you back to fond memories of much simpler times.

Whitey’s Premium Chili strives to always provide a high quality, consistent and gourmet product, just the way Whitey would have wanted!
