American as Apple Pie

It’s commonly called the unofficial start to summer, we know it as Memorial Day, observed on the last Monday of the month of May, which falls on May 25th this year. For history buffs, did you know there’s a South Carolina connection to Memorial Day. One of the first Memorial Day celebrations in the United States was by newly freed slaves on May 1, 1865 in Charleston, South Carolina. Memorial Day weekend is usually a time to spend with family and friends with favorite cookout recipes. Many of those include pies, cakes, breads, pastries, which are all made by Harlan Bakeries. The family owned company was founded in 1990 by the Harlan brothers in Avon, Indiana. What started as a bagel maker has grown to become one of the largest wholesale bakeries in the country. It was in Avon where John Reed needed a small part for his manufacturing facility. Piedmont Delivery Service picked up the part and delivered it at midnight. When you need a delivery service near you, Piedmont Delivery Service is waiting for your call. We call it The Piedmont Difference!

In remembrance and honor of all of our fallen heroes, I wish you and your family a safe and happy Memorial Day.
