The Power of a Cracker

Philip Lance, founder of Lance Corporation

Founded by Philip L. Lance in 1913, the Lance Corporation has become synonymous with the peanut butter cracker. Originally Lance sold his peanut goods door-to-door. His son-in-law, S. A. Van Every soon joined him. By 1926, the company moved to the facility on South Boulevard as seen here. Eventually the Lance Corporation moved to a large, more modern facility on Pineville Road and the company expanded its operations throughout the country.
