Maid-Rite's 60th Diamond Anniversary
60 years ago, Maid-Rite Specialty Foods was founded in Scranton, a town best known for coal mining. The company operated out of a modest 3,000 square-foot facility that consisted of a small freezer, cooler, and processing area. Maid-Rite’s founder, Don Bernstein, with a staff of two not only headed up the operation, but he also sold products and delivered them in the firm’s only refrigerated truck.
Driven by the dedication of one man, the company that was literally built on top of 7 coal mining tunnels, would become a diamond that shines brightly in the foodservice industry today.
As we celebrate our Diamond Anniversary year, we recognize Don in a special way for his leadership, vision, and commitment to the generations of employees and millions of customers who are the true reasons for Maid-Rite’s success.
Maid-Rite's Early Beginnings
Growing a successful meat company is a lot of work. Especially when you do it the way we did... one customer at a time. From our early beginnings with modest facilities and limited staff we have become one of the largest independent producers of portioned frozen meats. We owe this to thousands of our loyal customers and dedicated employees who have grown with us over the last seven decades.
