I just found out about an unusual food museum. The Schwan Food company was founded in 1952. It has grown from a one-man operation to a global reach. Their brands include Schwan’s, Red Baron, Tony’s Pizza, Freschetta Pizza, Mrs. Smith’s Pies, Edwards Pies and Asian Sensations. The museum is located at the Schwan Food Company headquarters at the corner of West College Drive and Saratoga St. in Marshall, Minnesota.
I have recently run into a number of pretty good company museums, especially food related ones. So next time I’m in Minnesota. I hope to look this one up.
LAST UPDATED December 26, 2015: It’s been six years and I still have yet to make it to this museum, but I still want to.
