Dawns’ Foods began in 1961 in the kitchen of Dawn and Harold Swan. Dawn began making her family recipe potato salad, which Harold sold, at the local grocery store he managed. Dawn’s homemade potato salad soon became a local favorite. For more about our history click here.

Something Special From WisconsinDawn's Foods produces foods that many of our customers say that they made themselves. We are proud to say that when our customers decided to purchase salads instead of making them "in-house", Dawn's is the name most people choose for that replacement. WHY? Because when a store or restaurant puts their name on a product, it's important to make it memorable. They try to make it as flavorful and distinctive as possible. When you decide on Dawn's, you will most assuredly get both.

Whether a deli operator, restauranteur, caterer or consumer, DAWN'S FOODS will provide that satisfying raising of the eyebrow reaction to every one of our quality line of POTATO SALADS, PASTA SALADS, DIPS AND DESSERTS.
