Meet the McKee Family

We are a privately held, family-run company with a history of innovation and a deeply held belief in the importance of doing business with integrity. Our company was founded by the McKee family, and its members still are actively involved in guiding our overall business direction as well as our day-to-day operations.

The McKee family is deeply committed to the company’s employees, and each year all eligible full- and part-time employees receive a share of the company’s profits. We live the belief that “a better way … begins with me” and expect it to be applied at every level of the organization. Our history of family ownership is one significant way we’re different from so many companies doing business today.

Over the years, we’ve grown from a three-person bakery to a group of companies that provides a livelihood for more than 6,000 employees and has annual sales in excess of $1 billion. Our products are available across the U.S., in Canada, Mexico and Puerto Rico, and on U.S. military bases around the world. And while we’re extremely proud of the Little Debbie brand, which has held Americans’ loyalty and trust for so many decades, we’re also dedicated to providing new and innovative products that meet our consumers’ evolving expectations while maintaining the quality and value McKee Foods Corporation is known for.
