Annie and Bruno Richter immigrated to the U.S. from Germany and began making sausages in their basement in the 1920's. As their efforts grew, they founded Richter’s Food Products in the Jefferson Park community in Chicago, IL. The goal for Bruno Richter was to use extensive advertising to market a healthier sausage. Advertising for “Richter’s Healthy Weiners” or “Richter’s Health Sausage” adorned buttons and matchbooks throughout the Chicago area. The Richter’s Food Products building, finished in 1932, was designed in a lavish art deco style by architect H. Peter Henschien.
