Open for more than 40 years, Troyer's got its start in the early 1960s by local farmers, Abe and Sarah Troyer. As the business grew, Abe developed a unique business structure that allowed him to help people throughout the community by making them business partners with a 100% profit-sharing pay system. That way, workers weren't just hired as low-wage employees; they were partnered into the family.
