Flossie’s® became a brand in the late 1970’s, primarily focused on opening walk-in shops. We traveled from coast to coast opening shops in malls and theme parks. As our family grew, Flossie’s® President, Rick Waddle, decided to set down roots in Arkansas. He expanded Flossie’s® into food trailers and the concession side of our business was born. We were able to take our famous trailers to events and come home to family each night. Flossie’s® continues to travel throughout Arkansas with a fleet of seven trailers and three generations serving our community.
Because the food trailer’s menu was so popular, we developed a line of retail items so other families could share our recipes around their dinner table. First, was our Flossie’s® Famous Original Funnel Cake Mix and Flossie’s® Ring & Funnel Kit. The retail line quickly expanded to include the Flossie’s® Famous Corn Dog Mix, Flossie’s® Famous Apple Cinnamon Funnel Cake Mix, and our newest additions: Flossie’s® Famous Moonshine Peanut Brittle and Flossie’s® Famous Cotton Candy.
In 1997, we were fortunate enough to be chosen as one of QVC’S 50 in 50 Quest in America Tour and Best in Arkansas. We were featured on QVC for many years where we gained loyal fans from all over the country. While on air, we would hit record sales every time.
We have been lucky to sell to some of the largest retailers. Some of our customers have included Sam’s Club, Cracker Barrel, Bahama Bucks, The Texan, Citi Trends and Magic Springs. A few of our current large customers are Bass Pro Shop, Cabela's and Amazon.
