When Frank Sauder started selling the freshest vegetables, poultry, and eggs from Lancaster, PA farms to residents and businesses located in Philadelphia during the Great Depression in the 1930s, no one knew what the future held. Sauder quickly built a solid reputation for quality foodstuff and fair prices. Constantly building on that reputation, Sauder’s door-to-door egg business has grown into one of the nation’s top egg wholesaling businesses over the years.
Since the company’s humble beginnings R.W. Sauder has expanded from one location in Brownstown, PA to five grading and processing facilities located in three states. Today, the organization employs about 400 people and sells approximately 1.5 billion eggs annually.
