Give a brief history of your business:
In 1965, Sam Banks Sr. and Nona Belle Banks invented Nona Belle’s Golden Fish Fry here in Corning, AR. In 1968 they were joined by Sams Banks, Jr. who began marketing the product regionally. There was a demand for the Golden Fry and Sam & Sam’s was incorporated in 1969. Bush Chiles’ Hush Puppy Mix was acquired in 1974.
What do you see for the future of your business?
Hopefully 50 more years! Mork marketing is needed. We appreciate all the local business.
In addition to retail in Corning and area restaurants, Nona Belle’s largest market is in Memphis, Chicago, and Michigan.
