Consistent Quality Every Time

Dawn Foods started making products to help the donut shop operators offer consistent, great-tasting donuts. Today, we offer a full range of bakery products, and at the heart of every product is the same consistent quality you can count on, the flavors and textures that customers love and the promise of great taste that keeps people happy and coming back.

It’s no secret that tastes change over time. Trying to keep up with what people want from season to season and year to year can be challenging. At Dawn Foods, we invest heavily in consumer insight to understand evolving trends and interests so that we can pass those insights on to you and help you drive your sales higher.

"Our Dawn sales rep, Jay, is great. We had an ice storm in December. Our shop awning tore in two places. Jay happened to come in when I was talking to my wife about replacing it. I looked out our window the next morning and there was Jay, up on a ladder with needle and thread, sewing up our awning for us! I said, 'That doesn’t have much to do with cake,' and he said, 'But it has everything to do with your business. 'Our employees even stopped to hug him!'"
