Driven by a passion for food, Schwan’s Company is committed to bringing our customers delicious, chef-inspired foods made from quality ingredients. That’s how we grew from “one-man-and-a-truck” in rural Minnesota to a multibillion-dollar private company with team members across the country. While many know Schwan’s for its iconic Schwan’s Home Service Inc. yellow delivery trucks that bring more than 300 delicious foods directly to homes, the company also offers foods in venues such as schools, restaurants and convenience stores, and promotes its Red Baron® and Tony’s® pizza, Pagoda® snacks and Edwards® desserts in grocery and club-store freezers. Our commitment to quality and passion for food shows in all we do, from careful ingredient selection and making quality food, to a great experience wherever you shop and eat.
