AdvancePierre Foods began staking its claim as "The Country Fried Steak Expert" back in 1973. Present owners Paul Allen and David McLaughlin combined 30 years of experience at Hormel Foods to found Advance. The Enid-based company manufactures top-quality, value-added food products and is known to have the most diverse line of chicken-fried steaks in the industry.

Advance’s product line is always expanding. Products now include breaded and unbreaded meat products, both cooked and uncooked, as well as philly steaks, specialty sandwich products and waffles. Advance not only produces consistent, quality products, the company also has the flexibility to customize products to cater to customers’ specific needs. As a result, product possibilities have few boundaries.
