C.J. Dannemiller

They say, “Money doesn’t grow on trees,” but you can build a business from a garden! The C.J. Dannemiller Co. was started in 1935 when Clarence J. Dannemiller started growing popcorn in his garden. He packed it in bags and would sell it door-to-door. The business grew and added concession equipment and supplies to the line-up. 

Today, 80 plus years later, the company employs the fifth generation of the family. Current company president, John Dannemiller shares, “As a young boy, I remember making deliveries with my Dad and thinking, ‘This is what I want to do when I grow up!’”

The company is now one of the major distributors of popcorn, nuts and concession supplies in the state of Ohio and beyond. Our mission is to provide ALL of our customers the tools needed to be successful. With the help of Gold Medal and our friendly knowledgeable staff, we build long term relationships with our customers. We provide them safe quality foods at competitive prices delivered in an effective, efficient and accurate manner.

In terms of future plans, C.J. Dannemiller will continue to expand and improve its current facility and product lines in order to serve its customers in the best way possible
