On May 21st, 1966, at Wray’s Thriftway in Yakima, Washington, the man we would come to know as Uncle Dan wowed shoppers with demos of his dry dressing and seasoning packets. Fifty years later, Uncle Dan returned to Wray's, joined by his son and present General Manager of Uncle Dan’s Salad Dressings, to celebrate half a century of work and flavor, to connect with the community Uncle Dan’s came from, and, of course, to offer in-store demos of his dry dressing and seasoning packets.
Loyal Uncle Dan’s fans came from far and wide to meet the man behind the dressing, and hang out with two generations of Dans. Some even left with their own priceless dressing packets personally signed by Uncle Dan!
Thank you to everyone who made this anniversary special, and stay tuned throughout the year for special events and discounts in honor of Uncle Dan’s half a century of delicious dressings.
