Celebrating More Than 85 Years of Snacks, Smiles & Success!
The year was 1931. With just $2,000 and the strong work ethic of founder, David C. Evans, Gold Medal was born. What started with simple drink concentrates has evolved into a full line of concession equipment and supplies including popcorn, cotton candy, Sno-Kones® and much more.
A lot has happened in our history. The third generation of the Evans family now leads the company and the fourth generation is working here as well. From our humble beginnings, we’ve grown to over 500 employees supporting efforts from engineering to manufacturing, marketing to customer service. We’ve been at the forefront of industry innovations, creating new products, continually improving processes and above all, serving the needs of our customers. Put our experience to work for you.
