BETTER WITH AGE
The Sokol story started over 125 years ago. The year 1895, to be exact.
This was the year John A. Sokol, a young Czech immigrant, decided he was hungry for more. Through determination and a positive outlook, John worked his way up from being a grocer’s apprentice to opening his own store. Then, he opened two more.
John would not stop there. At the turn of the century, he moved into wholesale. Shortly after that, he began grinding spices and manufacturing foods at his own facility—constantly pivoting to better serve his public. The U.S. was a land of riches after all, and the opportunities were far greater than one could’ve ever imagined.
