Frank Sauder started his door-to-door business in the 1930's, during the Depression Era. Several mornings a week, in the early hours before dawn, Sauder departed his Lancaster County farmhouse in Lititz and headed for Philadelphia with a small truckload of the freshest vegetables, poultry, and eggs available from his Lancaster County farm neighbors.
The wholesale egg business began to expand in 1947 when Frank Sauder's son, Raymond, joined him in the family business. In just a few years, door-to-door egg sales grew into a top-quality egg wholesaling enterprise.
Raymond's son, Paul, is the third generation of Sauders to operate the business. Paul has built upon the family traditions of integrity, product excellence, and fairness to customers, producers, and employees. Today, with the help of a highly motivated work force and a skilled management team, Paul has grown the company from a single location to its present size, with three marketing arms and five processing plants.
Today the Sauder company has passed the torch to fourth generation Sauder, Mark Sauder. He is currently continuing to chase the dreams that the family business set out to accomplish so many years ago.
