    Famous Foods of Virginia (FFV) factory

    Favorite thing: This is one Richmond institution that stubbornly hangs on in the ashes of Miller & Rhoads, Thalhimer's, Azalea Mall, and Sixth Street Marketplace. Since 1899, the sweet smells of the Famous Foods of Virginia (FFV) factory have filled the skies of Richmond and the boxes of cookies have filled grocery store shelves all over the country. Well, almost...Interbake Foods announced in early 2005 that it will stay in business, but it is closing the Richmond factory in favour of a new one in the Shenandoah Valley. For many years, FFV baked Girl Scout Cookies. When my daddy was in the army in the 1960s- serving in Northern Virginia, Georgia, and Missouri among other places- he would buy the cookies to support the local girl scout troop and he would see on the package, "Baked by F.F.V.: Richmond, Virginia".
