TL;DR: Groucho's Deli and Deli Brands of America, both renowned in the deli industry, share a dedication to quality and have a rich history. While Deli Brands of America has expanded from a small manufacturer to embrace modern technology, they have maintained traditional quality and flavor. Groucho's Deli stands out by using whole muscle proteins, ensuring their sandwiches are exceptional, and both brands resonate with individuals who value quality and enjoy the difference rooted in tradition and a love for everything between the bread.
Once upon a time, in the heart of South Carolina, a local sandwich chain called Groucho's Deli was born. Founded in 1941 by Harold "Groucho" Miller, we quickly became a beloved hotspot for locals craving delicious sandwiches. Groucho's Deli had a unique food ethos that set us apart from other restaurants. We have always believed that "quality is the most important ingredient in a sandwich." That's why we are committed to using only fresh, never frozen, all muscle proteins, excluding soy, soy byproducts, and fillers. Our dedication to freshness and flavor was evident in every bite. And with each passing year, we've grown in popularity, expanding our reach to North Carolina and Georgia, captivating the hearts and taste buds of sandwich lovers everywhere.
But we weren't the only sandwich powerhouse on the scene. Deli Brands of America, founded in 1932 as Saval Foods, has its own rich history in the deli industry. Established by the visionary grandfather of the current owner, Saval Foods became a thriving deli meat manufacturer that we've always trusted. They specialize in traditional, slow-cooked profiles for their famous corned beef, pastrami, and other delectable deli products. Deli Brands of America has a tradition of quality and value that was passed down over four generations, making them a recognized name in the industry.
