Business Tour: Boetje’s Mustard

Mike Thoms For Rock Island Mayor

Yesterday I visited Boetje’s Mustard at 2736 12th Street, Rock Island.

“Boetje’s Mustard is a national-favorite. Beginning in 1889, Fred Boetje began making stoneground Dutch mustard in his garage in Rock Island, Illinois. Using the same recipe today of water, mustard seed, sugar, salt and distilled vinegar, Boetje’s tops all mustard sales in the local retail market. It even outsells the big three-French’s, Kraft and Plochman-by 7 to 1. In a survey by Illinois Magazine published in its July 2002 issue, Boetje’s was voted to be the “Best Illinois food product” in Northern Illinois. Most recently Boetje’s Mustard won the 15th annual World Wide Mustard Festival in the Coarse Grained Mustard grouping.”
