In February of 1958, Leon and Gertrude Flanders founded Ware Provision Company, in Waycross, Georgia. The company began as a small family-owned enterprise with one 4' x 6' smokehouse and a small cooler, and first opened its doors on the same plot of land in Waycross, Georgia that Flanders occupies today. The majority of Mr. and Mrs. Flanders' early customers were small grocery stores who resold their delicious fresh and smoked pork products. In 1961, Ware Provision invested in a small beef patty machine, and in 1962, changed the company name to Flanders Provision Company. Before long, Flanders Provision was widely considered to produce the best beef patty on the market. This product quality, along with the best possible customer service, became the company's motto.
The Flanders Provision Company, LLC is currently engaged in the production, sale and distribution of frozen hamburgers and beef patties under the brands Flanders Beef Patties (including the new Jalapeno Patty), Flanders Bun Buster, Grill Master Beef Patty, and the Red Hat Ranch brand of products.
