Napoleon Creamery

?, #8940
      The operation of a local creamer in the City of Napoleon was begun in the late 1800's by Mr. Ernest Spengler, a local grocery operator. It was the out-growth of his observation that he could perform a service for the local farmers of the surrounding community by buying their cream and churning butter in Napoleon. The farmers soon realized that this method of selling was more profitable than making th e butter on the farm and then trying to market their product as many individuals.
In the spring of 1924, The Napoleon Creamery Company was formed. This was the combination of the business experience of Mr. Spengler; Mr. Leo W. English who at the time was operating his own sales and distribution of butter and eggs in the City of Toledo; Mr. Earl A. Grieser owner of the Holgate Produce Company; and Mr. Otto H. spengler, an Attorney of Toledo, Ohio.
Mr. Grieser came to Napoleon as the manager of the home plant, while Mr. English managed the sales branch in Toledo, Ohio.
A building was started at 221 East Washington Street, Napoleon, with the first production in January of 1925.
In 1925 there were 10 employees at the Napoleon plant and 4 at the sales branch in Toledo. The yearly production the first year was about 300,000 pounds of butter. From 1925 to 1938 the main products handled by the company were "Ever-Sweet" butter and "Napoleon" eggs. In September of 1938, The Napoleon Creamery Company bottled its first pasteurized milk for home consumption. Total sales of butter in the year 1963 reached 1,450,000 pounds.
In late October 2000, the creamery was no longer producing dairy products but was a small wholesale and distribution operation. A Grieser descendent, Lucille Grieser and her daughter were tending the office.1,2
