Committed to Quality Since 1917

For more than four generations, Daisy Brand has been a family-owned company committed to providing the freshest, most wholesome dairy products. The company is headquartered in Dallas, Texas with manufacturing facilities in Garland, Texas, Casa Grande, Arizona, and Wooster, Ohio.

The Daisy Difference

As a family company, Daisy passionately strives to provide our customers products in which we take great pride. Our dedication to pure ingredients with no preservatives makes for great-tasting products and sets us apart from others.

Having been in the dairy industry for close to 100 years, we recognize that making better products is a continuous practice. We are proud of the products we make and continually strive to make them even better.


A Trend of Growth

Having grown to above a 40 share, Daisy Sour Cream is the nation's number one brand with distribution in all 50 states. Additionally, Daisy is the largest brand in food service, military, and club and is recognized by consumers for "a Dollop of Daisy", a tagline that put this once small brand on the map. 

While maintaining a strong culture of curious and innovative problem-solvers, Daisy tripled employment over the last 15 years. The future looks bright with the opening of our third facility to further strenghten the foundation of growth.

Made in the USA

Daisy Brand is proud to produce all of its sour cream and cottage cheese in the USA. Headquartered in Dallas, Texas, production is split between state-of-the-art facilities in Garland, Texas; Casa Grande, Arizona; and Wooster, Ohio.

 

Dallas, TX                    

 

Dallas has been home to Daisy brand’s headquarters since the company relocated from Chicago in 1975. The home office houses most of the company’s core functions, and nearly a quarter of the employee population. Located just off of I-635 and Highway 75, Daisy Brand’s home office is conveniently located for commuters in the Dallas-Fort Worth metroplex.


Garland, TX 

 undefined 

Our largest facility, the Garland plant processes over one million pounds of sour cream and cottage cheese each day. Like the rest of Daisy Brand’s plants, the Garland plant relies on high-tech processing and packaging machinery to ensure quality in every cup. One mile off of I-635, the plant is easily accessible for commuters and shipping companies alike.                              


Casa Grande, AZ

Daisy Brand’s state of the art Casa Grande plant opened in 2008 to address the growing nationwide demand for Daisy Brand sour cream and cottage cheese. Located in the heart of dairy rich Pinal County, the plant is well positioned to receive and process locally produced milk for an exceptionally fresh product. In 2015 the Casa Grande plant was selected to be the first to manufacture Daisy Brand’s innovative squeezable sour cream.


Wooster, OH

  undefined

Daisy Brand's Wooster plant began production in 2016, making it the newest of three manufacturing facilities. Built using the same technology and know-how developed in the Garland and Casa Grande plants, the Wooster plant promises to be a vital part of the company’s manufacturing operations as the number of loyal Daisy Brand consumers continues to grow.

Progressive Grocer Editors’ Picks Award - Daisy Squeeze Sour Cream



Daisy Sour Cream

What makes Daisy America’s favorite sour cream? It could be the creamy taste, the freshness, or that it’s simply pure with no additives or preservatives.

Award-winning Daisy Squeeze Sour Cream was developed to improve the consumer experience. Making better products is a continuous practice at Daisy.

In 2015, after years of consumer requests, Daisy introduced a squeeze package that was the result of innovation, both in developing a patented structural design and spearheading "the first of its kind" machine in the United States.

Daisy Light Sour Cream

With the rich, creamy taste you love, but only half of the fat and 1/3 fewer calories, Daisy Light Sour Cream is America’s leading brand of light sour cream.


After almost two decades of research, Daisy Cottage Cheese was introduced in 2007. Similar to Daisy Sour Cream, the ingredient list and innovative manufacturing processes produce products that deliver a longer shelf life without preservatives. 

Daisy Low Fat Cottage Cheese

Whether enjoyed sweet or savory, this refreshing snack provides a protein boost to power you through the day with 13 grams of protein and only 90 calories.

Daisy Regular Cottage Cheese

This all natural cottage cheese doesn’t contain additives or preservatives, giving you a rich, creamy taste that is the perfect complement to your favorite fruits, nuts, or vegetables.

    IT Manager Interview

    Anonymous Employee in Dallas, TX

    Neutral Experience
    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied through an employee referral. The process took 3 days. I interviewed at Daisy Brand (Dallas, TX) in March 2016.

    Interview

    The hiring process is not short. Initial interview, panel interview with team members, lunch with representatives of other departments, interview with upper management, and a session with an outside career counselor group which includes various assessment instruments.

    I've dealt with some longer processes in my career, both as an applicant and an interviewer, though this one is at the upper end. The desire for cultural and team fit, along with the small team sizes providing limited opportunities to add other employees, drives the steps.
