Fred’s Frozen Foods was founded in 1960 in Noblesville, Ind. The company originally manufactured a patented line of pork loin fritters that was sold to restaurants and drive-ins in the Midwest. With an increase in popularity, Fred’s started producing other popular appetizers including breaded mushrooms, zucchini circles and cauliflower.
In 1982, Fred’s introduced the FIRST breaded mozzarella cheese sticks – now a standard menu item in many establishments. Fred’s for Starters® continue to create many household and restaurant favorites.
