"Dawn's Foods has been producing quality, great tasting food products for over 50 years!!"
Dawns’ Foods began in 1961 in the kitchen of Dawn and Harold Swan. Dawn began making her family recipe potato salad, which Harold sold, at the local grocery store he managed. Dawn’s homemade potato salad soon became a local favorite.
Soon afterward, a local food distributor began distributing Dawn’s potato salad throughout southern Wisconsin. The growing popularity of Dawn’s potato salad necessitated that production be moved from their kitchen to the renovated family garage, and then to a new 4000 sq. ft. production plant in Portage, WI. New salads and additional distributors were soon added.
Currently Dawn’s sales and marketing area consists of approximately 14 states with the majority being in the Midwest. Approximately 20 distributors service these 14 states.
Our mission at Dawn’s is to produce the highest quality products in whatever food category we choose to enter. We want the name Dawn’s to be synonymous with quality food products. It is our goal to provide a safe and rewarding work environment for our employees whom are a key component in our success.
