Maker Furst-McNess Company

Maker Details In 1908, Frank Furst and Fredrick McNess founded the Furst-McNess Company in Freeport, Illinois. Originally sold door-to-door from horse driven carriages, McNess has been delivering these high quality home products to four generations of cooks. You may not remember these products, but it is our guess that your mother or grandmother will.
