Stewart and Jeanie Ritchie incorporated Guckenheimer in 1967 with a simple idea – to use real food and generosity of spirit to empower engagement and community transformation in the workplace. Over the last 51+ years, the company has grown from a single location to having over 4,000 employees in the United States.
