Isernio's understands that, before you can indulge in some delicious comfort food, you have to feel comfortable with what you're eating. Ever since Isernio's was founded in 1980, quality, flavor, and pride were at the center of the product.

Frank Isernio's way of making sausage and ground chicken reformed the processes that were currently being used in the industry. His production strategies now include the use of whole chicken thighs instead of trim meat, and course grinding the meat for extra texture. Ultimately, Isernio's products are based on quality, flavorful, lean meat that the whole family can enjoy.

"Since we only use only whole skinless thighs and breasts, Isernio's Ground Chicken has a rich, rosy appearance and juicy flavor — a difference you can taste in every delicious bite," says Ingrid Harger, general manager of Isernio's.

What started as a hobby for Frank, who loved to cook special meals for his family in Seattle's Beacon Hill neighborhood, is now a widespread favorite in supermarkets and at family tables across the country.
