Place of Origin

Maker Schultz Brothers Distributors, Sheboygan

Maker Details Formed in 1911, when three brothers in Wisconsin teamed up to become a wholesale grocery distributorship. The brothers, Herman, Arthur, and Oscar Schultz, first called their new enterprise 'The Schultz Brothers Company,' but soon changed the name to the more descriptive 'Schultz Brothers Company Wholesale Grocers.' The brothers began by distributing nationally branded non-perishable products to local grocers. By 1928, they had developed their own brands--Schultz's Finest and Pine Hills--which they distributed along with the other, national brands. In 1946 the Schultzes expanded their wholesale operation to include fresh produce and frozen food products, adding a new building to their original facility to accommodate the expansion. Later teamed with Piggly-Wiggly and ran grocery stores in SE WI.
