Made in America, the American Dream

Don’t you just love items that are Made in America? We associate American-made items with safety and quality.

Jack Mullins, our previous culinary expert and leader, was a huge promoter of supporting our economy.  He believed we lived in the best country in the world, therefore we should support our country by purchasing clothing, cars, food and anything that was made in the United States of America. 

Jack believed in and lived the American dream.  He and his wife, Joan, knew that in order to support their ever increasing family, they needed to be in a business that they could grow and manage.  They were already making a custom sauce but were not in charge of the packaging operation.  In order to make their dream come to fruition, they had to buy Packaging Service Corporation in 1969 so they could co-pack all of the BBQ sauces and condiments that they developed.  Little did they know at the time that Mullins Food Products would become one of the best private label sauce and salad dressing manufactures in the United States. 

Today, Mullins Food Products employs several hundred individuals in the Chicagoland area.  We have fabulous recipe developers, food purchasers, sauce producers and packaging mechanics on our team.  Our employees shop in our town and support our local QSR’s; which in turn supports our economy. 

Be American, Buy American!
