Griffin’s rich history started in 1908 by brothers John T. and Charles M. Griffin with the Griffin Grocery Company in McAlester, OK.
Griffin manufacturing first started with coffee, with their famous syrup being added to the line in 1930. By this time, they had also built multiple facilities across Oklahoma and Arkansas. The company continued to grow to employ over 100 individuals and distribute their products over 15 states. Griffin Foods has remained a family business to this day, with John’s grandson currently operating the company in Muskogee, OK.
Griffin Foods now sells syrups, jellies and preserves, yellow mustard and Jalapeño mustard in stores throughout the state of Oklahoma, along with offering co-pack, food service and private label services. Despite the sticky situation of supply sourcing issues during the pandemic, they were able to meet all of their customers’ demands.
