[Extensions of Remarks] [Page E496] From the Congressional Record Online through the Government Publishing Office [www.gpo.gov] IN RECOGNITION OF THE 100TH ANNIVERSARY OF CONRAD AND HINKLE IN LEXINGTON, NORTH CAROLINA ______ HON. TED BUDD of north carolina in the house of representatives Monday, April 29, 2019 Mr. BUDD. Madam Speaker, I rise today to recognize Conrad and Hinkle in downtown Lexington for their 100th year of business. Founded in 1919 by Walter Conrad and E. Odell Hinkle, this local business has remained in the same location in Davidson County since the beginning. If folks want locally grown produce, cut to order meat, or friendly service, Conrad and Hinkle is the place to go. When you walk into Conrad and Hinkle, it's a step back into time. From the tin-ceilinged rooms to the display signs, the store is truly reminiscent of simpler times. In Davidson County, residents know Conrad and Hinkle for their rich and creamy pimento cheese, which is a southern food staple. The store began making pimento cheese in 1940 using Hinkle's grandmother's recipe. It's so popular that folks have ordered it from as far away as Alaska and Germany. Furthermore, they produce roughly 1,500 pounds a week and 2,000 pounds a week during the holidays. Whether you prefer pimento cheese on a slice of bread, on a biscuit, or on a country tomato, there's no doubt that Conrad and Hinkle is a reputable supplier of pimento cheese in Davidson County. Madam Speaker, please join me today in celebrating Conrad and Hinkle's 100th year of business. ____________________
