    Seeking records & history of Williams Box Lunch business

    Cynthia Parrill Newbie

      Where can I get more information about a business, "Williams Box Lunch" that started in Minneapolis around 1910 and expanded into other locations in the Midwest and beyond?  I believe they were in operation until the late 40s and possibly after.  I am interested in their business structure, locations, number of employees, corporate customers, and retail operations such as cafeterias.  I have collected information so far from newspapers but they are limited to classified ads and a couple of small stories. This story is connected to my family and I would like to feature this business in some family writing I am doing.  Thank you
