The company started its business with a grocery store located in Vernon Texas. The grocery store was owned by Egbert Elam Eggleston. In 1922 one of EgbertÂâ€Ã¢„¢s sons, Fay, and a son in law, Roy Wright, began Vernon Meat Company in the back part of the store.

In 1926, Vernon Meat Company constructed its own building. It had a shipping room, a sausage kitchen, some coolers, several wrapping and boxing tables, and an office. Much of Vernon MeatÂâ€Ã¢„¢s business was still from reselling other companies products. Besides meat, Vernon Meat also distributed tea, vinegar, cheese, beans, syrup, and preserves. In the mid-70Ââ€Ã¢„¢s, started focusing on the processing. In 1978, the family decided to get out of the slaughter business and specialize in what they did best, processing. The partnership was changed to a corporation and the name became Wright Meat Packing Company, Inc. In 1986, the name was changed once again, this time to Wright Brand Foods, Inc. In 1998, 20 years after changing from a full-line meat packer and processor to a bacon and ham specialist Wright Brand Foods grew to 650 employees. Production in tonnage has increased in those years by thousands of percent.
