The Young's Premium Foods legacy dates back nearly to 1920's, when TB Young began growing in-shell pecans in the heart of the Carolinas. The Pee Dee region of SC is known for its rich soil and favorable climate and TB's pecans were coveted for their size and texture. TB's son, James, shelled pecans in the 1940s under the brand Young Pecan; he distributed Pee Dee pecans to grocery stores and it grew to become the world's largest pecan shelling operation. Two decades later, we began selling pecans direct to consumer and Young's Premium Foods was born.
Our flagship store, like our story, is rooted right here in Florence, South Carolina. We offer the biggest, best gourmet pecans in over sixteen delicious flavors. Our onsite bakery sells pies, bread, cinnamon rolls, cornbread, muffins, cookies, pralines, bars and more. Every nut, gourmet snack and baked good is available to sample and the Young's Premium Foods store has become a destination in its own right.
Visit us in person on Highway 52, online or through our printed catalog. We'll ship direct to you, no matter where in the world you call home. We hope you'll feel our southern hospitality in every bite of our products because if the pecan is a fingerprint of its tree, then at Young's Premium Foods our roots run Carolina deep.
