About Boone Brands
Where we're from...
Boone Brands is located in Sanford, North Carolina and traces its heritage back to the pre-World War II era. Founded as the Patterson’s Packing Co., the company began as a livestock auction and processing facility. The Patterson’s Grocery Store and Patterson’s Meat Packing Company were well known throughout the area.
After World War II, the Patterson family redirected their focus and developed the first canned hot dog chili sauce in the Mid-Atlantic region. The Patterson’s insisted on the highest quality at a value price, and offered Patterson’s Hot Dog Chili Sauce as a premium hot dog chili condiment. Patterson’s Beef Hot Dog Chili soon became and continues to be a local favorite.
The grocery supermarket industry grew and stores became more sophisticated. Patterson’s Meat Packing Company exited the auction and meat processing business in the 1970’s, but continued to offer Patterson’s Hot Dog Chili Sauce.
and where we're going!
