Family Company

From our family to families around the world

Dawn Foods started as a family business. And no matter how large we grow, family is still at the heart of how we think, how we treat our customers and how we treat each other. Here’s a quick look at our family and their history of dedication to serving you and your business.

A History of Commitment and Innovation

Dawn Foods began nearly one century ago with the basics: two bakers and a recipe for really delicious donuts. To this day, Dawn remains a family-owned company — with third-generation Joneses still actively involved in growing our business and serving our customers. And while we now create much more than donuts, our focus on providing the sweet treats for life’s moments that matter hasn’t changed. Under the direction of the Jones family, Dawn Foods has become the international partner of choice for bakers and culinary professionals around the world. We produce more than 4,000 products, employ nearly 5,000 people, do business in more than 105 countries, and operate in more than 57 locations worldwide. But no matter how we grow, our company culture still celebrates hard work and partnership, quality products and innovation, and working with our customers to help them leverage insights and trends to grow their businesses.
