We are a privately held, family-run company with a history of innovation and a deeply held belief in the importance of doing business with integrity. Our company was founded by the McKee family, and its members still are actively involved in guiding our overall business direction as well as our day-to-day operations.
The McKee family is deeply committed to the company’s employees, and each year all eligible full- and part-time employees receive a share of the company’s profits. We live the belief that “a better way … begins with me” and expect it to be applied at every level of the organization. Our history of family ownership is one significant way we’re different from so many companies doing business today.
Over the years, we’ve grown from a three-person bakery to a group of companies that provides a livelihood for more than 6,000 employees and has annual sales in excess of $1 billion. Our products are available across the U.S., in Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico, and on U.S. military bases around the world. And while we’re extremely proud of the Little Debbie brand, which has held Americans’ loyalty and trust for so many decades, we’re also dedicated to providing new and innovative products that meet our consumers’ evolving expectations while maintaining the quality and value McKee Foods Corporation is known for.Visit McKeeFoods.com for more
Want to see what McKee Foods has been up to lately? Supporting national and local efforts with Outdoor Happiness in mind is something that has always been a high priority for the company. McKee Foods and the McKee family have given more than $2.8 million to a number of projects dedicated to the building, preserving and maintaining of outdoor spaces to ensure they will be enjoyed by communities for years to come.
McKee Foods understands the value of Stringer’s Ridge as both an urban oasis and historic site. The forest offers trees that benefit the ecosystem as well as stunning views of downtown Chattanooga. Protecting this green space is a priority to McKee, who contributes to the preservation and maintenance of this park with a view.
Bauxite Ridge, a natural property behind McKee’s existing employee fitness center, was once sighted for residential development. Now, this beautiful landscape will be preserved and developed into an area designed for community use – not only for McKee employees to enjoy, but for anyone else who wishes to take advantage of the trails and natural features that make Bauxite Ridge such a picturesque outdoor destination.
Efforts by McKee Foods to improve the Wolftever Creek Greenway and City Park in Collegedale, TN are adding miles of pedestrian trails safe for running, walking and family fun.
Also known as the Tennessee Riverwalk, this Hamilton County project has provided miles of public trails along the picturesque Tennessee River. McKee, along with many other supporters and volunteers, is working to continue extending the trail to ultimately stretch 22 miles from downtown Chattanooga to Moccasin Bend National Park.
