America’s Favorite Pickle is Made in Michigan’s Thumb
OK, technically Vlasic Pickles, located in Imlay City, is located at the extreme southern portion of the Thumb. However area growers supplies cucumbers for America’s #1 pickle and scores of workers work at the plant and distribution.
Frank Vlasic moved to America in 1912. Just after World War II Frank’s son grandson Bob built its first plant in Imlay City, Michigan. Over the next 20 years, the family grew Vlasic into America’s number one pickle.
