In 1946, Hazel Ellis Hancock started a lobster restaurant in Ogunquit, Maine. For 25 years, Nana ran that restaurant with her two sisters, Fannie and Mina, and they taught their children and grandchildren (Hancock Gourmet Lobster Co. founder Cal Hancock among them) well. The restaurant is still in the Hancock family, and is still serving the finest Maine lobster available to its many customers. As Nana taught, Cal only uses the freshest, all-natural ingredients. None of Cal's products have preservatives, and all use an abundance of fresh Maine lobster meat and seafood. Products are made in small batches to preserve the integrity of the long-held recipes and are prepared daily.
