RTOA Member since 2014
Ken’s has grown from producing dressings for a small steakhouse restaurant in 1958 to the largest privately-owned dressing and sauce company is the U.S.
Our success is founded on putting flavor and family above all else. The same flavor-obsessed family that started bottling Ken’s is still bottling the Salad Dressings and Sauces today.
Round Table Pizza buys our delicious Salad Dressings and Wing Sauces from Ken’s Foods.
What makes your product special?
All we make is dressings and sauces. When you focus on one thing you can always continue to make it better. We also have great traditional recipes and several new flavors that have helped us grow in all markets.
What do you like best about your product?
Robert likes the fact that in each product category we have something for everyone’s flavor and need. Whether it’s Gluten Free, Bold spicy flavor, Lite, Traditional, Savory, etc. We meet our consumer’s needs.
What do you like best about working for Ken’s Food?
It’s a family company and that means a lot to Robert because he’s a family guy. Ken’s has grown but the pillars of a family business have remained. Everyone in our company including the owners are accessible to our customers.
