My Dad, and my older brother, were Dugan Men for many years in Northern NJ riding around in Divco trucks.
I was their Helper on weekends for a whole $2 a day!
I also worked part-time for Dugan's in the Ice Cream Freezer at the Branch in Hackensack.


I was a dugan's driver. My truck was a 1947 Divco which you stood up to drive. I sold 1/2 gallond of ice cream too. I drove out of the Clifton garage.

I remember Dugans had a seasonal bread that had cheese incorporated into the flour that made the most wonderful toast. A little butter and it was wonderful. Lived in Levittown, LI, NY at the time.

Also from Queens, I think we also had a similar bakery delivery called Krug. I also remember Dugans.

In Levittown, by way of Woodhaven and Glendale, we had both Krugs and Dugans. As mentioned above a few years ago, we did look forward to Krug's Peter Wheat comic. How times have changed...

My Uncle Ben CELEBRATING HIS 100TH Birthday used to drive a Dugan's Truck
Does anyone know where I might find a picture of one to make a present for him???

I was a Dugan's driver. The truck was a 1947 Divco and you stood up to drive it!

 
Like this one?
 

 
What years? When/why did you stop?
 
Sir Loin
Yes, the Dugan man would come on Tuesdays if I recall correctly. If you wanted him to stop, you put a cardboard D in your window. Then on Thursday the Charles Chips truck would come by with big tins of potato chips and pretzels. Also got Hoffman soda deliveries. Ah the good old days.



What years? I wish you fellows would put a date on your memories to improve the context.

We lived in Elmhurst, Queens and the Dugan man was named Joe. He would deliver when we got home from school. My parents were not home yet so my sisters and pretty much ate most of the cupcakes. Nothing like eating off the icing and then the fluffy yellow cupcake ! Another great memory of growing up in New York in the 50's! And the Drakes Devil Dogs were THE best!

Welcome EG.  We mostly had Krug in Middle Village at least on our street. BTW, I went to Newtown HS. Our daughter in Pittsburgh can't get devil dogs so we have to supply her with them.  Did you ever spell devil dog backwards?
