Grace [Gracemary] (Cook) Schulze is the wife of a second generation German businessman who founded with his father Paul Schulze, Senior, the Paul Schulze Biscuit Company in 1923. The company was created from the purchase of two other bake companies. The company was to merge and change into the Schulze and Burch Biscuit Co. which produces Toast’em Pop-Ups along with crackers, granola bars and cereal. The company was the first in the United States to use traveling steel ovens. During World War II, it baked round biscuits for C-rations and, along with other foods such as lemonade powder, packed them into cans for the U.S. Army. Following the war, the company introduced the saltine cracker and the four-in-one pack under the Flavor Kist brand.
