Abstract:
Stan's Pimento Cheese is a North Carolina legacy. After service in World War II, Stan Hudgins, of Alamance County, worked for Colonial Stores for fourteen years. Eventually he opened his own neighborhood produce and grocery store, and it was there that he created his famous brand of pimento cheese. In 1984, he agreed to distribution to other stores throughout the Southeast, and the cheese took off. Today, Stan's Quality Foods makes and ships 20,000 pounds of pimento cheese a week.
