Founded in Rhode Island, along the banks of the Queen’s River in the village of Usquepaugh, the oldest manufacturing business in Rhode Island, and the second oldest continuously operating business in the state. C.D. Kenyon, who purchased the mill in 1909, saw the potential for selling ground meal. He began to brand it in sacks with the Kenyon name and made it available to everyone. In 1916, the company bought a Model T truck, which made it possible to satisfy the growing demand for Johnny Cake Meal, which extended the entire state of Rhode Island, and parts of Connecticut and Massachusetts.

Founded in the 1930s, and in 1991, the firm acquired Eclipse, a coffee syrup manufacturer, after which is become the sole manufacturer of coffee syrup in the United States. Coffee milk has become part of Rhode Island folklore and has received local, regional, and national media attention as a uniquely Rhode Island taste “sensation.” On July 13, 1993 coffee milk earned more than just the title of “hometown brew” when the State Legislature voted to make coffee milk the Official State Drink of Rhode Island.
