In 1905, Carl Woeber came from Germany to Springfield, Ohio, with a handful of family mustard recipes, expertise in the art of mustard making, and the desire to succeed.
He launched his business from home, making a variety of quality mustards in his own kitchen and selling them door-to-door by horse and buggy. It was just a matter of time before the demand for the Woeber products grew into a need for a manufacturing facility. The rest is history.
Carl's son, Raymond, joined the business and made great strides in expanding product lines and distribution. As new flavors and other ground horseradish products were introduced, several plant expansions came about.
Today, the company is owned and operated by the third generation of the Woeber family, brothers Ray and Dick. Under their leadership, Woeber's has grown to be one of the largest suppliers of horseradish in the United States. With the most up-to-date technology and increased warehousing capacity, Woeber's is capable of adding new product lines and increasing its capacity for its foodservice, commercial and retail customers.
It is rare in today's business environment that even third generation family businesses survive the temptation to sell out or be gobbled up by huge conglomerates. The fact that the Woebers maintain the family pride and hands-on passion for making the best mustards and horseradish products is testimony to the quality of their brands.
