100 Years of Drive, Perseverance and Success
The history of Duke Foods is a captivating one. Our founder Eugenia Duke made her reputation as a businesswoman before women even had the right to vote, selling homemade sandwiches on the streets of downtown Greenville, South Carolina for a dime a piece. Her deliciously simple spreads tasted “like home” to soldiers who were far from it, and her signature chicken salad, egg salad and pimento cheese recipes delighted millworkers and dandies alike. So popular were Eugenia’s recipes that her sandwiches enjoy near-legendary status, and her delectable mayonnaise has become the very flavor of the South.
