Founded in South Carolina by Frank Sherrill and Fred Webber in 1920, two mess sergeants who had learned a lot about food service during their time in World War I. Specializing in Southern food, the chain became a hit and expanded to Washington D.C., Georgia, Tennessee, North Carolina, and Virginia.
