I had a customer tell me that I needed to change our name because "dixie" has a bad connotation. Here's what I have to say.
there are several possible origins of the term "dixie", which refers to the American South. None of the origins has anything to do with the hateful, violent, evil white supremacy movements highlighted in the headlines after the sad events in Charlottesville.
Dixie Picnic celebrates the food and family I love, all from the American South. Just as it is wrong to condemn a group of people for their race or their religion, I refuse to condemn a whole region of our great country because of a group of angry evil white supremacists. This group of hatred exists in the fringes of our country in all areas - not just the South. This photo shows 4 generations of loving women from the American South. I never once heard these ladies utter a racial slur or express anything other than kindness and friendship towards their neighbors, friends, and strangers on the street.
Dixie Picnic is a business that thrives on great food and the concept of an outdoor meal with friends, family, coworkers, as a respite from the craziness of everyday stresses. We celebrate the diversity of our workforce and condemn hatred and racism in any form. At Dixie Picnic, we actually believe that a picnic would be a great place to work on getting to know each other better and create better understandings. We have more in common than we are different.

Best Comfort Food

Southern hospitality marries scratch cooking at this eat-in or take-to-a-picnic casual breakfast and lunch favorite in Malvern. Tracey Deschaine and her staff make everyone feel like a regular while serving up generous helpings of dishes from Deschaine’s Virginia childhood. French toast a l’orange, southern sticky bun French toast, and the My Oh My! omelet top the list of breakfast bests. For lunch, get a box lunch (sandwich, side, deviled egg and upcake). The Thanksgiving sandwich, nutty chicken salad and Georgia BBQ smoked pork elicit raves and nostalgia. And upcakes, upside down cupcakes iced all over for maximum satisfaction. Well now, there’s a picnic in every bite.

“I have been in the industry for over 20 years and have never had such an incredible box lunch delivered!”
