JTM is a multi-million dollar, multi-faceted food processing company that was founded in 1960 originally as a butcher shop named Maas Brothers. In 1980, the company was renamed to JTM Food Group to reflect the continued growth of the business. Today, the national company is still rooted in the same principles of the original butcher shop—quality and value. JTM, which claims to serve about half of U.S. schools, provides products to more than 13 million K-12 students at 7,000-plus school districts nationwide. JTM offers more than 150 menu items and delivers a variety of finished food products. Beyond schools, the company targets kitchens in the healthcare and military markets, and looks to work with co-manufacturers and retailers calling for slim-down meal alternatives.
