Beginning as a family-owned company in 1975 in Tyler, Texas, John Soules Foods grew quickly by selling ready-to-cook and fully cooked meat to the foodservice industry. We introduced beef and chicken fajita products, which provided an innovative way to combine flavor and convenience. Sales skyrocketed when retail distribution began in 2003 with great success.
Today, the Soules family still operates John Soules Foods. Our state-of-the-art facilities are on 67 acres just north of Tyler. In 2014, we acquired ProView Foods, a leader in breaded chicken products for school and institutional nutrition programs adding breaded chicken products expanding our variety of chicken products to all customers. The Fall of 2021 began operations in Valley, AL with the newest and largest facility in the company. This new plant brought the company’s total state-of-the-art high-volume production lines to 8, producing nearly 300 million pounds per year.
