Founded in 1907 by Charles Wixon
Charles Wixon drove a horse-drawn wagon down the streets of Chicago’s meat packing district, delivering seasonings and spices to his customers. As his customer base grew, so did Wixon Spice Co. in the heart of downtown Chicago.
In 1964, the opportunity for expansion came with the merger of Wixon Spice Co. with Milwaukee Spice. This merger came with the move to Wixon’s current location in St. Francis, Wisconsin.
The start of the 1980s brought new ownership and new capabilities to Wixon as the company was purchased by Fontarome. The next twenty years were filled with company expansion as Wixon added increased flavor and taste modification expertise to its wide range of capabilities.
Current leadership purchased Wixon, Inc. in 2004 and have continued to grow the company into the custom taste provider it is today.
