Upper Crust Enterprises, Inc.
Our legacy of Upper Crust Enterprises, Inc. and Gary Kawaguchi began with Fishking Processors, Inc, better known as Mrs. Friday’s. Mrs. Friday’s began 50 years ago in Los Angeles by Masashi Kawaguchi, Gary’s father. Mrs. Friday’s became renowned for its innovative quality breaded seafood.
To maintain the company’s high level of quality and differentiation in the 60’s, the Kawaguchi family introduced to the U.S. “Panko” - Japanese Breadcrumbs. Originally the Panko was imported; however, in the early 80’s the family decided to build a facility and manufacture their own Japanese Panko Breadcrumb. It was the first Panko manufacturer in the U.S.
As the family business continued to expand, Gary Kawaguchi always followed his father’s vision. Through the Company’s acquisition in the mid 90’s Gary remained on the Management team committed to the success of Mrs. Friday’s while managing the Panko business. In 2006, when the breaded seafood operation moved out of California, Gary purchased the Panko operation now known as Upper Crust Enterprises, Inc. to continue his family’s life-long dream of satisfying customers by providing innovative Japanese quality Panko Breadcrumbs.
Today, our Japanese Panko Breadcrumbs are sold throughout the entire United States, Canada, Mexico, Barbados, Belize, Russia, United Arab Emirates, Guam and Saipan. We supply various restaurant chains in the U.S., Mexico and Canada. We added Tempura Batter mix to our product line late this summer and already have customers locally and in Mexico. We joined the Health wagon and formulated our product to abide by Zero Trans Fat labeling laws.
