Why you should visit Wolfermans
Wolferman’s has been a proud purveyor of specialty foods for over 100 years. Louis Wolferman founded what would become the nation's premiere specialty foods company in 1888, with the opening of Wolferman's corner grocery store in Kansas City, Missouri. He adopted the slogan “Good Things to Eat” and insisted on only the finest products with the best possible ingredients for his customers.
Constantly striving to provide exceptional food experiences, Louis’ son, Fred, started making the most unique English muffins in 1910, when he discovered that he could obtain an unusual size and texture by utilizing tuna cans as molds to form and bake muffins on a fiery open griddle. Today, the tuna cans are gone, but the recipe has stayed much the same, and the muffins that began with a loyal following in Kansas City are now prized by fancy food aficionados around the country.
Wolferman’s English muffins are perhaps their most recognized specialty food items, but as you will find, they are only the beginning. They also bake the very finest scones, tea breads and crumpets, and offer delicious toppings, elegant desserts, premium teas and specially blended coffee. More than a century after Wolferman's was founded, they still operate under Louis Wolferman's promise of delivering exceptional food experiences to their valued customers.
