About Boone Brands
Boone Brands located in Sanford, North Carolina traces its heritage back to the pre-World War II era and the Patterson family. Sanford knew the Pattersons as hard working people with an interest in serving the local community. The Patterson’s Grocery Store and Patterson’s Meat Packing Company in Sanford were well known throughout the area.
The war ended and consumers wanted more convenience. Pattersons redirected their focus and developed the first canned hot dog chili sauce in the region. Pattersons insisted on the highest quality at a value price. Patterson’s Hot Dog Chili Sauce 8 oz. was developed and canned in Sanford with the first ingredient listed as beef. Patterson’s Beef Hot Dog Chili soon became a local favorite.
The grocery supermarket industry grew and stores became more sophisticated. Patterson’s Meat Packing Company exited the meat processing business in the 1970’s. Patterson’s Hot Dog Chili Sauce stayed true to its original recipe promoting great taste at a fair price. Transition over the past years has included the purchase of several brands.
In 2015 the company changed its name to Boone Brands. The Patterson’s brand is now a part of the Boone Brands family of products. These additional brands now include Patterson’s, Mrs. Fearnow’s, Texas Tailgate, Rose, Beverly, Hilton’s and Harris.
