Their legacy of Upper Crust Enterprises, Inc. and Gary Kawaguchi began with Fishking Processors, Inc, better known as Mrs. Fridays. Mrs. Fridays began 50 years ago in Los Angeles by Masashi Kawaguchi, Garys father. Mrs. Fridays became renowned for its innovative quality breaded seafood. To maintain the companys high level of quality and differentiation in the 60s, the Kawaguchi family introduced to the U.S. Panko - Japanese Breadcrumbs. Originally the Panko was imported however, in the early 80s the family decided to build a facility and manufacture their own Japanese Panko Breadcrumb. It was the first Panko manufacturer in the U.S. As the family business continued to expand, Gary Kawaguchi always followed his fathers vision. Through the Companys acquisition in the mid 90s Gary remained on the Management team committed to the success of Mrs. Fridays while managing the Panko business. In 2006, when the breaded seafood operation moved out of California, Gary purchased the Panko operation now known as Upper Crust Enterprises, Inc. to continue his familys life-long dream of satisfying customers by providing innovative Japanese quality Panko Breadcrumbs.
