75 Years of Bob Evans

Join us as we look back at what’s changed and what hasn’t here at Bob Evans Farms over the past 75 years. We’ve grown from a regional company delivering and stocking our own products at local supermarkets to a national brand. We’ve become more efficient, giving us room to grow. We’ve innovated, making it easier and faster for people to serve up fresh and delicious meals. But one thing that’s been consistent is a workforce made up of really good, hardworking people – people who take pride in what they do and the quality of the product they produce. 75 years is quite a run. A lifetime even. And we’re just getting started.

Doing so positions us as both a brand leader and employer–of–choice.
