The Southern Biscuit Company building in Richmond dates to 1927, and served the company (also known as FFV and Interbake) until it relocated its cookie and cracker production elsewhere in 2006. The building is an excellent example of industrial design by Francisco & Jacobus, a successful New York firm. During the 1930s, Southern Biscuit Company, founded in 1899, became the first company to produce the Girl Scouts of America’s now-famous cookies.
