Over 60 years ago there was a man who had a vision. It had to do with people, cheese, and a little red wagon. What am I talking about? The Figi’s Company! It is a great company to order whatever you are looking for.
The man’s name was John Figi. He knew he could make some really good cheese, but he wanted others to be able to order it through the mail so they could enjoy it too. But he wasn’t quite sure how to do it. So he personally sent out 1500 postcards to people all over the area. He received 43 orders out of the 1500! He couldn’t believe the response that he got. Then he had the problem on how to get all of those packages to his local post office since he didn’t have a vehicle. So he went to one of his good friends and borrowed his red coaster wagon and away he went. He put the packages in the wagon and wheeled his way to the post office himself to deliver them.
What an amazing start to John Figi’s business. John and his wife Ann were making some of Wisconsin’s finest aged cheddar cheese right out of their house. Ann was responsible for sorting all the orders that came in. She also had to hand cut about 200 one pound wheels and 70 one pound blocks of cheese on their kitchen table. She sealed the cheese by wrapping it with cellophane that had been preheated on the stove. While she did that John was busy making his special cheese. They made great business partners. I wonder f they even thought about how big their business would get as time went on.
Since there were no cheese cutters or computers or machines to do some of the work back then, everything had to be done by hand. All of the addresses and orders had to be hand written. They also had to hand cut all the cheese orders. So you can just imagine how much work they had to do! They slowly built their business customer by customer and brick of cheese after brick of cheese.
To this day the legend of the little red wagon has stuck with the Figi’s Company. Every year they offer collectible Christmas tree ornaments with a different little character sitting in the wagon. It could be from a bear to a moose to a snowman. They sell out every year! So they are a very popular collectible item. The legend of the little red wagon is known well at the Figi’s corporation and their customers to this day. And why not? With a start to the business like John had, the little red wagon is a part of the company’s history.
Another popular item is their collectible Americana Barn Series. They are ceramic barns that are a limited edition and exclusive only to Figi’s. Inside the barn is their famous Kave Kure Cheese Spread! You won’t be disappointed with how that tastes! That is one of my favorite items from Figi’s besides their beef sticks. Ordering from Figis is a great way to understand why Wisconsin is known as the cheese state! We are known for having some of the best cheese in the world.
From beautiful collectible tins for the Christmas season to cheese and sausage boxes, Figi’s continues to work hard to keep their customers happy by selling only the best of everything. They have so many different items to choose from. They have items like cheese spread, ham, candy, bread bowls, pecans, nuts, sweatshirts, knick-knacks, fruitcake, and much more! You can see all they have to offer on www.figis.com and you can even order online there! They also have a wide range of sugar free items. Eve Diabetics deserve fudge and chocolate. So even diabetics can enjoy themselves once and awhile.
Holidays are a busy season for Figi’s. So if you want to place an order and get the items in time for the Holidays, make sure you order at least a month in advance. That way you can make sure you have enough time to get the order in and enough time to have the order shipped to you. There are some great party items and ideas in the catalogs.
Figi’s also ships items to military addresses. So if you would like an item or items sent overseas to your solider they will take care of it for you! And the shipping is fairly cheap. It is a great way for your solider to enjoy some good food from back home.
