815Eats was named after the area code of our hometown Ashton, Illinois. A place where we treat our employees as our greatest asset, focus on quality and flexibility, encourage ideas and input from everyone, embrace our rural surroundings, innovate every day, and often forgotten, have some fun!
The 815Eats story dates back long before 2021. In fact, back before the creation of the 815 area code. That's because the 815Eats family also includes our parent company, Crest Foods Co., Inc. And when we say parent, we mean it: Crest Foods is a third-generation, family-owned-and-operated company. Founded in 1946, Crest Foods has grown to become one of the most trusted leaders in dry food manufacturing.
Combine the start up enthusiasm of 815Eats with Crest Foods’ knowledge and reputation, and you'll find a humbling recipe for success. We look forward to sharing our 815Eats story and hope that you, too, will join us in the fun.
