Company History

For more than 70 years, Bob Evans Farms has been delivering farm-fresh goodness — delicious, quick-to-table farm-fresh foods that are sold in grocery stores all over the country.

Today, we are proud to be the #1 selling refrigerated dinner sides, including many varieties of mashed potatoes and macaroni & cheese. We’re also a leading producer and distributor of over 60 varieties of sausage and bacon products, and egg whites, frozen handheld breakfast items, and other convenience foods.

Our success is built on the basics: high-quality, farm-fresh, quick-to-table food, carefully made to meet the needs of today’s busy families. We do all the washing, peeling, seasoning and cooking, so you can enjoy extra mealtime with your family and spend less prep time in the kitchen.
