Family Tradition of Success 

Totem Food Products began in route sales delivery as a snack food specialist to neighborhood taverns.  Doug McKeen and two partners, Dave Conard and Paul Henderson, pooled their talents and resources.  The business grew steadily to include a diverse set of customers and a variety of new products.  Meat snacks became more popular and Doug McKeen asked Art “OH BOY!” Oberto to get into the jerky business, and we all know how well that turned out!  Dave and Paul retired and Totem Foods went on to acquire Puget Sound Foods in Tacoma which featured freshly made sandwiches.  The company also began a nut roasting operation and started packaging a variety of freshly roasted nuts.  In 1981 the company consolidated the Seattle and Tacoma locations and moved into the present Kent location.  In 1994, the assets of Premium Foods were purchased and the company took ownership of the Canadian Jumbo Hot Dog brand.

This is a family business.  Doug McKeen is still active and involved, his daughter Kathy and son Doug are corporate officers, and Kathy’s son Shawn is the buyer and warehouse manager.  A majority of our employees have been here over 10 years, a third of which have been with us 20 years or more.  Our focus has never changed.  It is, and always has been, service.
