Gold Medal History
When David C. Evans bought Kings Ink Company in 1930,our world was a little smaller. With a mere $2,000 borrowed on his home, Evans expanded the small company to include an entire food line sold under the Gold Medal Products label.

When WWII gave rise to new opportunities, the company managed the responsibilities of continued growth while capitalizing on a new product line up. New product and manufacturing innovations in the 1940's and 50's allowed for continued expansion, while specialty items and eye-catching merchandising items created national attention and put Gold Medal at the top of the industry.

Later, a move to a much larger facility allowed for new manufacturing capabilities and the creation of engineering and marketing departments. While our world is a little bigger than it was 70 years ago, Gold Medal continues to foster a philosophy that keeps their creative energies focused while receiving the full benefit of experience and size.

Today, Gold Medal equipment and supplies are sold worldwide through a network of professional concession equipment and supply distributors and branches. Gold Medal, headquartered in Cincinnati, Ohio USA, has grown to include branches in Chicago; Columbus, OH; Greensboro, NC; Indianapolis; Nashville; New Orleans; Orlando and Pittsburgh, plus independent distributors worldwide.
