We are frequently asked if there is or was a "Buddy".
Nils "Buddy" Eian moved to Minneapolis from Ashby, Minnesota in 1974 to start Buddy's Kitchen. The first product was a succulent hand-cooked omelet for North Central Airlines. That omelet remains a signature Buddy's product 34 years later.
Two surviving daughters of Buddy remain active shareholders today, carrying on their father's traditions of making high quality products that are fairly priced, and fostering an amazingly positive work environment for the employees.
Although initially grew serving the catering needs of airlines, the company has diversified to
serve other growing industries.
